Segun oni

By Kayode Joseph.

Some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the two wards in Ifaki Ekiti , Ido/Osi local government , have condemned the suspension of chief Segun Oni by the ward executives describing the step as shameful and illegal.

The APC in ward two in Ifaki had on Wednesday this week announced the suspension of Chief Segun Oni for alleged anti party affairs.

However the Elders opposed the decision saying it violates the procedure of the party.

Those who signed the statement from the two wards rejecting the party’s position are: Michael Durodola, Tayo Okanlawon, Ebenezer Ogunlana and Sola Ilori.

The leaders dissociated themselves from the suspension, saying it was an act of disrespect .

The statement said: “The ward executives’ decision to suspend Segun Oni did not receive the blessing of generality of Ifaki wards’ APC Leaders.

” The concocted allegations were unfounded. Names of those said to have raised allegations of anti party against Oni were not mentioned, neither were they invited.

“The faceless committee they said they set up did not properly invite the former governor. The suspension letter written to the former Governor has no signatories and this rendered it useless.

” With the above, we the entire elders of the APC in the two wards in Ifaki reject this suspension and we urge the party members and the public to discountenance it”, they said.
