The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has lifted the suspension that it had placed on Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu former Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun, Sen. Rochas Okorocha, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, and Mr. Usani Usani.
The party conveyed this in a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu and made available to newsmen in Abuja on Monday.
The party in a statement by the APC Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu said their suspensions are lifted in line with the party’s deliberate policy of fairness and actions targeted at ensuring harmony within the party across the country.
“Through the suspension, our party has shown the capacity and willingness to implement its own rules and enforce discipline when there is an infraction.
“We have also shown that no individual is above discipline and that the party will always apply equity and justice in the day to day running of the party.”
The party is, therefore, hoping that the concerned party members will seize the opportunity to fully reconcile themselves with their ward, local government, and state party structures.
”They will key into the party activities, and continue to make their own contributions to the growth and stability of the party,” he added.
The party’s spokesman urged those concerned to also take steps to reconcile with groups and individuals that were important to ensuring a lasting solution to any conflict that may exist in their respective states.
Recall that Amosun had during the 2019 election supported APM’s candidate who was his former commissioner against the party’s candidate, Dapo Abiodun who eventually won the poll.
Okorocha in Imo supported his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu who defected to AAC after failing to get the party’s ticket leading to polarisation of the party that led to them losing the state to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Also, the issues with APC in the Ondo state led to the loss of some seats in the House of Assembly elections.
