Barely five days after the conduct of Ondo state governorship election, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expelled the only female member of the state House of Assembly, Tomomewo Favour, over anti-party activities.
Vanguard reports that the lawmaker, who represents Ilaje Constituency II was on Wednesday, October 13, expelled from the party by the executive of her ward in Mahin ward IV.
Legit.ng gathered that she was accused of anti-party activities before and during the just concluded governorship election in the state.
The newspaper noted that Tomomewo's expulsion letter which dated Monday, October 12, was signed by the ward chairman, Olamigoke Ajimuda.
Legit.ng recalls that the lawmaker was one of the members of the state House of Assembly who were against the impeachment of the deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi, two months ago.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the newly re-elected governor of Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu, taunted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), after losing the gubernatorial election.
It was reported that Akeredolu made the comment when he spoke to journalists attached to the Aso Rock Villa after he presented his certificate of return to President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, October 13.
Akeredolu was accompanied by his counterparts from Lagos, Kebbi, Ekiti, Jigawa and the state's deputy governor-elect, Lucky Ayedatiwa.
In another report, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said that Governor Akeredolu’s reelection is a testimony of people’s belief in the leadership of the APC across the country.
The governor said this after he arrived in Lagos from Ondo state, where he served as the party’s campaign chairman.

He insisted that the APC candidate in the election deserved the victory, having achieved most of his campaign promises in the first term.
Also, a former deputy governor of Osun state, Iyiola Omisore, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state and other chieftains of the APC stormed the state in solidarity for Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
Akeredolu appealed to the people of the state not to lower the credibility and reputation of the state before the general public, urging them to vote wisely.
