My Purported Suspension Was Orchestrated By Persons Not Recognised By APC National Headquarters- Adele

The immediate past Chairman of Apapa local government,  Mr Elijah Owolabi Adele, has debunked his suspension from the All Progressives Congress by the Apapa Local Government chapter of the party.

Adele, in a statement signed by himself, described the purported suspension as one orchestrated by persons whose names and positions are not recognized by the National Headquarters of the party as duly elected Local Government Executive Committee Members, adding that their action was lifeless, empty in entirety, null and void, and of no consequence.

“My attention has been drawn to a notice published in The Nation Newspaper of Wednesday, 11th of August 2021 announcing my purported suspension from the All Progressives Congress in Apapa Local Government by a group of faceless persons whose names and positions are not known to the hierarchy of our great party as elected Members of the Local Government Executive Committee of the party.

” This latest somersault is not new, as it is an elongated version of the manipulations that are continuously engineered by a powerful clique within the All Progressives Congress to cover up the tracks of the illegalities in which they got themselves enmeshed during the course of the processes leading to the last Local Government Councils election.

” It is important to state here that the last LGA Congress of the All Progressives Congress in Apapa Local Government was held on the 12th of May 2018, with Mr. Taiwo Adeleye elected as the Chairman of the party; that was one clear week before the election of the State Executive Committee. Logically, this translates to the fact that the LGA Executive Committee of the party in Apapa already had a life of its own before the election of the State Executive Committee which went ahead to manipulate the authentic list of elected LGA officers.

” If the above narrative was correct, then the only LGA Executive Committee that has the powers to initiate my suspension, for any reason, should be the one led by the elected LGA Chairman – Mr. Taiwo Adeleye whose name is recognized by the National Chapter of our party, not those impostors whose names were smuggled into the Local Government Executive Committee list through the back door.

” The fact that none of the names of the signatories to the purported suspension featured in the list of the LGA Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress in Apapa Local Government lay credence to the fact that the suspension attempt, to borrow medical parlance, was brought-in-dead, lifeless, empty in entirety, null and void, and of no consequence whatsoever.

“May I state here again, that I remain a committed and very loyal member of the All Progressives Congress; one who will always tread the path of justice, peace and equity. No sacrifice will be too much to make towards ensuring that the operators of our great party, at all levels, learn to start doing what is right and just in order to strengthen our great party and what it stands for”, said Adele.

He urged all my supporters and well wishers to ignore the so-called suspension and remain committed to our cause and determination to make our party a better platform for all of us.
