The All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended ongoing State Congress in Oyo over alleged forgery of documents meant for the exercise and other irregularities discovered a few hours before the exercise.
APC has also directed members of the Oyo State Congress Committee to immediately return to the National Secretariat for further briefing.
The Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, who also doubled as Chairman, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, gave the order on Saturday.
Buni, through a statement signed by the party’s National Secretary, John Akpanudoedehe, said that the suspension became necessary to ensure credibility of the process leading to the emergence of a new leadership of APC in Oyo State.
The statement affirmed that APC, under governor Mai Mala Buni, would not tolerate acts of indiscipline and fraudulent manipulation of processes of any kind.
“It has become necessary to suspend the ongoing State Congress exercise in Oyo State due to information regarding the forging of documents meant to conduct this exercise.
“The national chairman has however ordered the Oyo State Congress Committee to return to the National Secretariat for further briefing,” the statement said.
