Ondo guber poll: APC lifts ban on suspended members

• Seeks unity ahead of election• Says reconciliation of Aiyedatiwa, Oke good omen ahead of election

The Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the suspension placed on members of the party involved in alleged anti-party activities has been lifted.
Chairman of the party in the state, Ade Adetimehin, while stating that the lifting of the suspension takes immediate effect, said that the move was taken for the party to be indivisible and united ahead of the November 16 governorship election in the state.
Adetimehin, who spoke, at the weekend, in Akure, the state capital, urged the affected party members to shun anti-party activities and join forces with the party in preparation for the election.

Chairman of the party, while assuring residents of the state that the APC administration is ever-ready to tackle the challenges facing the state and country at large, described the recent reconciliation between Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa and Olusola Oke (SAN) as one of the great achievements recorded in the political history of the party.
Adetimehin, who hailed Oke for his maturity, emphasised that the erstwhile APC aspirant’s action signalled his genuine love for the party, particularly his resolve to collapse his political structure for the progress of APC in the state.
He, however, assured supporters of Oke of unbiased treatment, saying that they are all APC members.
He also urged other aggrieved party members and aspirants to emulate Oke by putting the party above their interests, saying that such a move would solidify and unify the party.
It would be recalled that some aggrieved aspirants of the party who kicked against the April 20 governorship primaries, which produced Governor Aiyedatiwa as the standard-bearer of the party, were suspended by their various wards.
Also, no fewer than 61 members of the party in Akoko South-West and Akoko South-East local councils of the state were suspended last year by the party, following their alleged involvement in the woeful performance of the party during the general elections in 2023.
