Published

on

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday denied reports that it has suspended Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu over alleged anti-gay party activities.

There were reports that the governor has been suspended by the party after failing to respond to the query issued to him by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

However, speaking with Sunday INDEPENDENT, Mallam Lanre Issa- Onilu, the party’s National Publicity Secretary said he was not aware that Akeredolu has been suspended as claimed.

According to him, the last action he was aware of was the query issued to the governor by the NEC.

“I have received a lot of calls but I have said I am not aware the governor has been suspended. The last action I am aware of was that the governor was issued a query,” he said

Also, Akeredolu on Saturday said he has not been suspended by the NWC of the APC.

Speaking with Sunday INDEPENDENT, he also insisted that he was neither issued any query as claimed by the party leadership as he has not received any letter to that effect.

In March, the governor was issued a query by the party leadership for “glaring anti-party activities, which greatly affected the fortunes of our candidates in the recently-conducted Presidential and National Assembly elections in the state.”
