The All Progressives Congress, APC chapter in Edo State has suspended the national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, over alleged role in the crisis rocking the state chapter of the party.
The decision followed the vote of no confidence passed on Mr Oshiomhole by the chairmen of the APC in the 18 Local Government Areas of Edo State.
According to a statement by Edo APC chairman, Anselm Ojezua and Assistant State Secretary, Ikuenobe Anthony, the state exco has adopted the decision.
“Consequent on the development, the State Executive Committee has adopted the vote of no confidence passed on him and the subsisting suspension order from the organs of the party in the state.”
They said the decision was necessary to prevent a repeat of what happened in Zamfara State, where the party was unable to field any candidate in elections.
“Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is the one behind the crisis in Edo APC. We have passed a vote of no confidence on him and he stands suspended from the party.
“We don’t want what happened in Zamfara State or other parts of the country to happen in Edo State.”
