The Ondo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress(APC) has criticized the report credited to its former state chairman, Isaac Kekemeke, blaming his suspension on the national leadership of the ruling party.
The party in a statement by its Director of Media and Publicity Steve Otaloro, said Kekemeke in an effort to ‘distort’ allegations leveled against him by the party leading to his suspension, descended on the APC national leadership.
It noted that the former chairman faulted the letter from the national Secretariat that appointed Ade Adetimehin as the acting state chairman.
The statement also quoted Kekemeke of accusing the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie Oyegun of unilaterally suspended him from office.
The party said “It is unfortunate that Kekemeke deliberately maligned our party national chairman and denigrated the highest authority of our party with a view to portraying himself as being innocent of all the allegations levelled against him.
“All the allegations he levelled against the national chairman, according to him, are based on hearsay”
The party pointed out that the former chairman as a lawyer should know that it was faulty to rely on hearsay to blame the national chairman in other to exonerate himself from exonerating from allegations against him.
It noted that the choice of Oyegun as APC national chairman was not only based on his political prowess but his dignity to speak the truth at all times.
The party however advised Kekemeke to wait till the issue will be sorted out by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s reconciliatory committee, stressing that his ‘concocted’ claims would not help his case.
It said” the timing of this falsehood is wrong most especially when President Muhammadu Buhari has saddled the national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu with the role to reconcile all aggrieved members of the party”.
