Don’t blame us for your suspension- Ondo APC tells ZLP lawmaker

The Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says it should not be linked with the suspension of a lawmaker, Mr. Tomide Akinribido, by the State Assembly.

The party noted that it has no control over what the leadership of the State House of Assembly does.

The party described the claim of Zenith Labour Party as a grave embarrassment and an attempt by the party to drag APC into an affair of an arm of Government in its publication.

In a statement issued by the party’s publicity Secretary,  Alex Kalejaiye, the APC said  the house of assembly is not an an appendage of the party Secretariat.

The statement reads, “Any knowledgeable observer knows that every assembly has laid down rules that guide the conducts of its members. Whatever therefore happens in the Ondo State House of Assembly is purely its affair. 

“The Ondo State House of Assembly,  under the leadership of its Speaker, Rt. Honourable David Oleyelogun, is not an appendage of the party secretariat. 
“Ut is unfortunate that the ZLP, under which platform Akinribido contested and came to the House, has to throw caution to the winds, and porously attack a decent and well cultured political organisation like the APC.
“As a party that genuinely cares about the stability of our political space and the wellbeing of all residents of the State,  we advise the leadership of ZLP to be patient and await steps that would be taken by the House in that regards”.
