The reprieve which the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, got on Saturday when 17 out of the 26 members of the party’s executive in Ward 10, Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State lifted the suspension imposed on him in November 2019 only lasted for few hours.

This followed a statement hours after by the Chairman of the APC in Etsako Ward 10, Mr. Oshawo Stephen, wherein he dismissed reports of the lifting of the suspension slammed on Adams Oshiomhole.

Stephen said in a statement that according to his Secretary, Emuakemeh Sule, 17 out of 26 member executive signed the resolution lifting Oshiomhole’s suspension.

Sule had said in his committee’s resolution dated June 4, that they did not find any merit in the allegations that led to the suspension of Oshiomhole.

The ward chairman, Stephen, however, disagreed with Sule saying said the ward executives elected in 2018 remain intact and have not been displaced by anybody, describing the claims of the lifting of the suspension as a charade.

According to him, “The suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by the ward executives remains valid. The statements to the contrary in the media are false and should be disregarded. We stand by our decision and have no reservation on the action as it is in the best interest of the party.

“The ward executives as well as our counterparts at the Etsako West Local Government level stand by the suspension of Comrade Oshiomhole for his divisive role in the crisis rocking the APC in Edo State.”
