The All Progressives Congress (APC) Ondo State chapter has expelled Jumoke Anifowoshe-Ajasin, daughter of the first Executive Governor of the State, Chief Adekunle Ajasin and Nathaniel Adojutelegan over anti-party activities.
Alex Kalejaye, state’s Publicity Secretary of the party, told a news conference in Akure on Friday that the decision, taken on Thursday, followed the outcome of a fact-finding committee set up by the party’s state executive committee.
“This resolution is being communicated to the National Secretariat of the party as we speak,’’ Kalejaye said.
“The state’s executive wing of the party has said that it will not encourage nomadic politicians despite that it is ready and willing to accommodate politicians from other parties,’’ Kalejaiye said.
He explained that the party at the ward levels had earlier recommended the suspension of the duo, noting that the state executives on Thursday ratified and approved the suspension, having found them culpable of the allegations.
It went further to expel the duo, Kalejaiye explained.
“We also received series of allegations of anti-party activities against Mr Nathaniel Adojutelegan, from leaders in Arigidi, Ward 1 in Akoko Northwest Local Council Area that he should be suspended,’’ he said.
The Publicity Secretary said that as a lawful and responsible organisation, the State Working Committee deliberated on the allegations and set up a fact-finding committee in line with Article 21 of the party’s Constitution.
