Fresh Crisis Hits Ondo APC As Party Suspends Chairman
The party was openly divided before the November 26, 2016 governorship election, which led into closure of its secretariat for several months.
Also, as a result of the crisis, which arose from the outcome of the party’s primary election last year, a new leadership of the party under the chairmanship of Ade Adetimehin has emerged.
However, there were indications that a fresh crisis may soon rock the party with a resolution of the state executive committee of the party demanding Kekemeke’s probe.
At a meeting on Thursday, a three-member disciplinary committee was set up, to investigate Kekemeke’s activities.
They was a motion to sanction him in accordance with the party’s constitution.
It would be recalled that a governorship aspirant of the party, Segun Abraham, believed to be the anointed candidate of the party’s national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is currently challenging the outcome of the party’s primary election before a Federal High Court in Abuja.
Kekemeke, who was alleged to be Abraham’s arch supporter, allegedly worked for him during the party’s primary election.
The party’s Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Adesanya, who confirmed the development, gave the names of the committee members to probe Kekemeke as Rasheed Badmus, Yusuf Ogunleye, while he (Adesanya) will chair the committee.
Adesanya also alleged that Kekemeke has, since the emergence of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, failed to discharge his responsibilities, as provided by the party’s constitution.
