The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dissolved the executive committee of the party in Kwara state, citing electoral irregularities in the last ward, local and state congresses.
The National Working Committee (NWC) in a statement signed by National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, after its meeting on Monday, said it “examined the unfolding developments within the party in Kwara state, specifically the irregularities that characterized the conduct and outcome of the congresses that produced the leadership of the party at all levels (Ward, local government and state).”
After annoncing the sack of the leadership of the party at the ward, local government and state levels in the state, the NWC announced the appointment of caretaker committees at the affected levels and named Bashir Bolarinwa as the charman of the state caretaker committee.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed had at the weekend reportedly asked party officials loyal to Senate President Bukola Saraki to resign their appointments and announced Bolarinwa as the new state chairman of the party.
The NWC has now asked Mr Bolarinwa to assume office “with immediate effect”.
The NWC said it “also reviewed the actions of some leaders of the party that emerged from the above congresses who participated in an open rally calling on the Senate President to decamp to the PDP”.
