An aide to Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, Mr. Kaycee Osamwonyi, has been suspended from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Osamwonyi’s suspension was for allegedly engaging in acts of thuggery, hooliganism and causing factions within the party.
The governor’s aide was suspended by APC leaders in Ward six Uhunmwode Local Government Area.
The motion for the suspension of the governor’s aide was moved by Hon. Harrison Orobor and adopted by party members present at the meeting.
Other reasons adduced for the suspension of Osanmwonyi were engaging in activities that have brought the APC to ridicule and opprobrium in Ward 06 and promoting subversion and breaches of the Constitution of the APC.
A disciplinary committee was set up to look into the allegations against him and submit its report within two weeks.
Members of the disciplinary committee were Hon. Clifford Igbineweka, Saturday Enaruerue, Stanley Onaghise, Lucky Onobun and Iziegbe Airhienbuwa.
When contacted for comments, Osamwonyi promised to respond but he did not act on the matter as at press time.
