- An APC group alleged that Ade Adetimehin, the state chairman of the party in Ondo state, is a member of Action Alliance party
- The group under the aegis of Concern Leaders Forum also alleged that thugs have been mobilised against party leaders during a planned confab
- As a result of this, the group urged the party leaders to shift the planned confab which is to hold in Akure to another state in the southwest
Despite the intervention of Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the crises rocking the Ondo chapter of the party, a group of leaders and stakeholders have accused the party chairman in the state, Ade Adetimehin, of being a member of the Action Alliance party and as such, they cannot sit down at a confab with him.
The group under the aegis of Concern Leaders Forum in a communique after its meeting at the home of a former deputy governor, Alli Olanusi, made this known on Wednesday, July 10.
They alleged that thugs have been mobilised to disrupt the gathering and also unleash mayhem on leaders of the party who are critics of the state governor over alleged anti-party activities, Leadership reports.
Consequently, the group called on the national leadership of the APC to change the venue of its planned confab from Akure to another state in the southwest, over security concerns.
The group insisted that the confab should be shifted to a neutral place in Lagos state or any other state in southwest except Ekiti state.
“We cannot sit down in any meeting in which Ade Adetimehin who openly campaigned for Action Alliance in Ondo state at the expense of our party. We do not know when Ade Adetimehin decamped back to APC after the last election."
The group also urged the party not lose sight of the adverse implication of not applying the relevant sanctions provided in Article 21 of APC Constitution 2014 as Amended against anyone who is guilty of anti-party activities without exception.
"Meeting with members of AA led by Ade Adetimehin at the Confab will only encourage indiscipline and discourage hard work and loyalty among genuine APC members and leaders," the group added.
