Top APC members suspended by the party over anti-party activities prior to and during the last general election have been pardoned by the party National working committee (NWC). In a bid to further strengthen the party and ensure peaceful relationships among all members the NWC decide to look the other way and lifted the suspension of Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, as well as Senator Ibikunle Amosun and Senator Rochas Okorocha.
It also lifted the suspension on Osita Okechukwu and Pastor Uguru Usani.
The National Publicity Secretary of the ruling party, Mr. Lanre Issa-Onilu, announce this in a statement forwarded to Channels Television on Monday.
He explained that the APC National Working Committee (NWC) took the decision 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 would always apply equity and justice in the day to day running of the party,” he said.
Issa-Onilu advised the concerned party members to take the opportunity to fully reconcile themselves with their ward, local government, and state party structures.
He also asked them to key into the party’s activities and continue to make their contributions to the growth and stability of the APC.
“We urge them to also take steps to reconcile with groups and individuals that are important to ensuring a lasting solution to any conflict that may exist in their respective states,” the APC spokesman said.
