APGA Suspends National Chairman


The National Working
Committee of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), yesterday, suspended its National Chairman, Mr. Victor Ike Oye, for alleged gross misconduct.
Rising from its monthly meeting in Abuja, the NWC told newsmen that the suspension of the national chairman was in line with the provisions of the party’s constitution, following what it called immense constitutional breaches and inordinate practices of the chairman and other national officers.
Speaking on behalf of the NWC, the Deputy National Secretary of the party, Chief Jerry Obasi, said the suspension was necessary in order to save the party from impending destruction and reposition it to greatness, given the circumstances surrounding the party under the leadership of the suspended chairman.
Among those also suspended by the NWC include: the Deputy National Chairman (North), Alh. Abubakar Adamu, and Deputy National Chairman (South), Chief Uchenna Okogbuo, who were also indicted for several constitutional breaches.
Some of the allegation levelled against them include: not involving NWC in making electoral regulations to govern nomination/selection of candidates, and not involving NWC in day to day running of the party, which violates article 12 (3) of the party’s constitution, among others.
