APC ward executives deny suspending Jimoh Ibrahim

Published

The All Progressives Congress (APC), Igbotako Ward II in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State, has disowned the purported suspension of Sen. Jimoh Ibrahim, representing Ondo South in the National Assembly being circulated on social media.

Chairman of APC in the ward, Mr Adetokunbo Omotola, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Okitipupa.

Omotola said that rather than the purported suspension, the party’s ward executives had passed a vote of confidence in Ibrahim.

He said that APC in the ward was also standing by the senator in his pursuit of justice on the last governorship primary.

“As the Chairman of APC in Igbotako ward II, Sen. Ibrahim is still a bona fide member of our party and we stand firm by him to get justice on the last governorship primary.

“No fewer than 25 ward executives have passed vote of confidence in Ibrahim. Therefore, any other letter being circulated as suspending Ibrahim is null and void,” Omotola said.

Meanwhile, Ibrahim’s aide, Mr Banji Okunomo, in an interview with NAN, described the purported suspension as mere drama, laced with politics.

According to him, the purported suspension of the senator is a fluke.

“We are not aware of the suspension letter signed by unknown ward executives but only heard that a vote of confidence has passed in Ibrahim,” Okunomo said.

NAN reports that in the two documents circulating on the social media, the suspension letter was signed by 16 ward executives, while the vote of confidence letter was signed by 25 ward executives.

NAN also reports that the crisis within the party was not unconnected with the case filled by Ibrahim before an Abuja High Court challenging the April 20 governorship primary which produced Lucky Aiyedatiwa as the candidate for the Nov. 16 governorship poll.
