Executives of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in ward 10 Estako West local government area of Edo have lifted the suspension order on Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
The secretary of the ward, Emuakemeh Sule, made the announcement on behalf of his colleagues on Saturday while addressing a news conference at the APC national secretariat in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
He explained that the ward reviewed the suspension of Oshiomhole and decided to lift it in the interest of peace.
Sule claimed that 17 out of the 27 officials of the ward who signed the suspension order were in agreement with the decision to lift the suspension.
According to him, the party’s ward officials met on June 4 and resolved to call on all organs of the party to restore the rights and privileges of the APC national chairman.
The Daily Bells reports that Oshiomhole was removed from office as the APC National Chairman as a result of the suspension placed on him by his ward exco.
Meanwhile, having defected from the APC and joining the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Edo Governor Godwin Obaseki arrived the National Secretariat of the PDP a few moments ago for screening.
He joined the party on Friday and got a waiver to contest for elective posts on its platform.
PDP had already screened Gideon Ikhine, Ogbeide Ihama, and Kenneth Imansuangbon for the primary slated for Tuesday in Benin, capital of Edo.
The PDP primary is slated for Tuesday, June 23, in Benin, Edo State.
