Moro local government area’s chapter chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Kwara state, Alhaji Adebayo Jimoh, has been suspended from office.
His suspension followed an alleged diversion of money meant for logistics of delegates during the last APC senatorial primaries in the state.
Leading other 16 members of APC executives in the government, the public relations officer, Alhaji Adebayo Saka, announced the suspension at a news conference in Ilorin, the state capital, on Friday.
Saka and his team also accused the suspended chairman of alleged anti-party activities, adding that all efforts made to get Jimoh to defend all the allegations levelled against him proved abortive.
He said the decision to suspend the chairman was taken after a meeting of the APC executives in the local government on Friday and that their decision to suspend the chairman was in accordance with Section 21 sub (D1AF) of the APC Constitution.
“We have resolved that the chairman should step aside pending the outcome of the investigation. The deputy chairman shall take over the affairs of the part, henceforth.
“We have set up a six-man committee to investigate the petition written against the chairman. The committee has three days to submit its report,” he said.
