Edo APC suspends Assembly member-elect, gives reason

The suspension was announced on Friday at an enlarged meeting of APC members in the area, following a recommendation by the five-man panel set up on July 1, to investigate allegations of misconduct.

Reading the report submitted by the panel, the party LGA Chairman, Godwin Alabi said the party followed the provisions of Article 21 of its constitution which stipulates disciplinary actions for erring members. Alabi explained that the suspension of Okaeben was as a result of his failure to honour several invitations extended to him to ascertain his grievances against the party.

“Following his utterances, the APC in the council area asked him to apologise but he refused to comply with the party’s directive, rather he threatened the life of the chairman of the party in the council area, Godwin Alabi.”He added that the party has complied with recommendations of the panel which include: the suspension of Chris Okaeben, who was elected to represent Oredo West Constituency in the state assembly.

Hon. Christopher Okaeben is among the 12 members-elect, who are yet to be inaugurated into the House.
