|Group Asks APC To Expel Akeredolu, Okorocha Over Aa's Adoption Of Atiku by jadesoletee(m): 4:33pm On Jan 15|
A political group within the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state, the Ondo State Youth Alliance (OSYA), has called for the expulsion of the Governors of Ondo State and Imo state, Rotimi Akeredolu and Rochas Okorocha from the APC over their romance with the Action Alliance (AA) which has adopted the candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar as it's candidate in next month's presidential election.
The group in a statement issued in Akure on Tuesday by its coordinator, Sanya Akinwale, said the anti-party activities of the Governor have gotten to a height where it need to be checked and necessary disciplinary actions needed to be taken before it spells great doom for the APC in the coming presidential election.
The statement reads:
"Governors Akeredolu and Okorocha, though members of the APC have openly declared that they are sponsoring candidates on the platform of the Action Alliance (AA) after failing to get the APC's ticket for their anointed candidates during the APC primaries last year.
"In Ondo state, Akeredolu's candidates who lost out in the APC primaries are in the AA running for National Assembly elections, while the son-in-law of Okorocha and his Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu is the governorship candidate of the AA in Imo state."
Akinwale added that "In Abuja, Akeredolu and Okorocha pretend to be supporting President Buhari's second term agenda, meanwhile their actions back in their respective states show otherwise from what they profess. It is good that their intent has been exposed before it's too late by the recent declaration of the Action Alliance that it has adopted the PDP Presidential candidate as it's candidate.
"The president and the leadership of the APC should not be deceived by the antics of these men who are only concerned about how to actualize their selfish political agenda at the detriment of the APC and the second term agenda of President Buhari."
He therefore stated that "now that the AA has made known it's intentions to support Atiku, it's high time the leadership of the APC stopped condoning and encouraging anti-party activities. No matter their position, nobody is greater than the party, disciplinary actions need to be taken now before it's too late, the party is supreme to everybody and as such nobody should be allowed to get away with actions that would destroy the party and spoil its chances at the polls. Failure to sanction the governors will be seen as setting a very bad precedence for indiscipline among the rank and file of the APC.
"Should the Governors be allowed to get away with their open display of anti-party activities, it will send a very wrong signal to members at the grassroots that such act is encouraged and portray the APC as a party that lacks the power to sanction erring members."
