APC suspends Segun Oni for alleged anti-party activities

All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended former governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni, for alleged anti-party activities.

Oni was also the immediate past Deputy National Chairman (South) of the party under the tenure of John Oyegun.

In a letter dated May 1 and addressed to Oni by the party’s executives in Oni’s Ifami Ward II, Ekiti, the party said it took the action over his failure to appear before them to clear the allegations against him.

Oni had dragged Kayode Fayemi and the party to court after the May 26, 2018 APC governorship primary to contest the legality of Fayemi contesting the primary without first resigning as minister.

The letter was signed by the Chairman of Ifaki Ward II, Shina Akinloye, and Secretary Ogunyemi Taiwo as well as 24 other executive members in the ward.

APC executive in Ido/Osi local government also signed the letter.

“Subject to Article 21 Subsections I, II and X of the APC constitution 2014 as amended.

“We the undersigned executive members of the APC hereby suspend you indefinitely from our great party, based on your refusal to honour our invitation for investigation and fact finding into the allegation of anti-party activities leveled against your person by the members of our party.

“We are by the copy of this letter informing both the local government and state working committee of the party for necessary information and action,” part of the letter said.
