The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, following a vote of no confidence passed on him by the Chairmen of the APC in the 18 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Edo State.
Oshiomohole was blamed for the crisis in which Edo APC is currently bedeviling the party in the state.
A statement jointly signed by Edo APC Chairman, Anselm Ojezua and Assistant State Secretary, Ikuenobe Anthony said: “Consequent on the development, the State Executive Committee has adopted the vote of no confidence passed on him and the subsisting suspension order from the organs of the party in the state.”
“Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is the one behind the crisis in Edo APC. We have passed a vote of no confidence in him and he stands suspended from the party.
“We don’t want what happened in Zamfara State or other parts of the country to happen in Edo State.”
