APC suspends Jimoh Ibrahim for alleged insubordination, others —

The All Progressive Congress (APC) has suspended Senator Jimoh Ibrahim, who is representing Ondo South Senatorial District, for alleged anti-party activities and insubordination.

Ibrahim, a governorship aspirant who contested the ticket of the party with Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa on April 20, was suspended by 27 exco members in Igbotako Ward 2 and two party exco members in Okitipupa Local Council.
Controversies had continued to trail the shadow election, with Ibrahim filing petitions before the party’s Appeal Committee after describing the process as fraud. Also, Ibrahim had further instituted a case at the Federal High Court against the emergence of Aiyedatiwa.
In a communiqué issued after a meeting by the ward exco in Igbotako, the APC members hinged their actions on the resolve of Ibrahim to take legal action against the party.

The communiquè was signed by the ward chairman, Omotola Adetokunbo, the vice chairman, Oseyemi Arikawe, and the secretary, Sola Omotoye, among others.
“We, the members of the APC Executive Committee of Igbotako Ward II in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State, convened a meeting on Monday, May 13th, 2024.
“During our meeting, we deliberated extensively on various issues affecting the progress and development of our party, notably indiscipline and insubordination among some members.
“We have found Senator Jimoh Ibrahim’s actions and activities to be in violation of the party’s constitution, particularly his decision to sue the party as well as his anti-party activities.

“As such, we have resolved to take appropriate disciplinary action against him as outlined in the party’s constitution.
“Senator Jimoh Folorunso Ibrahim is hereby suspended from the All Progressives Congress (APC) with immediate effect for acts of insubordination and anti-party activities in accordance with Article 21, Section A of the APC Constitution.
“It is worth recalling that the National Party Chairman of APC, Alhaji Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, met with all Ondo State governorship aspirants on April 25th, 2024, in Abuja.

“During the meeting, he urged them to cooperate with the party’s candidate and incumbent Governor of Ondo State, Honourable Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa.
“Despite this, Senator Jimoh Ibrahim Folorunso proceeded to sue the governor and the APC, blatantly disregarding party instructions.
“Additionally, he has engaged in anti-party activities by urging his supporters in Igbotako and Ondo State to join the NNPP, claiming he will soon receive the gubernatorial ticket from them.
“Senator Jimoh has openly declared his intent to disrupt APC before leaving the party, as evidenced by his actions in the Federal High Court in Abuja and his derogatory remarks about APC in various media outlets.”
