PRESS RELEASE BY THE CARETAKER CHAIRMAN OF ODOKORO, OKORO, ARAROMI WARD
We, the entire Executive Members of Okoro/Odokoro/ Araromi Ward, under the Caretaker Chairmanship of Hon. Abdulfatai Aliu, hereby, dissociate ourselves from the purported suspension of the Executive Chairman of Ijumu LGA, Hon Taufiq Isa, from the APC.
We wish to state, unequivocally, that Honorable Taufiq Isa is a bonafide and respected member of Okoro/Odokoro/Araromi ward. We confirm that he is a True Ambassador of our ward and we are pleased with his conduct, performance and developmental strives.
We say, without any fair of contradiction, that their is no crisis in our ward and no wrong doing, no matter how little, has been reported against Alhaji Taufiq Isa. There is, therefore, no disciplinary proceeding being held against him.
We state that we retain the responsibility to report any wrong doing of any of our members to the Local Government Executive Committee, as empowered by Article 21(B)(vi)(a) of the Constitution of the Party. The purported suspension of our member, by the four minority members of the Local Govement Executive Committee, without any report of wrong doing from our ward is baseless and of no effect. It is nothing but desperation taken too far. The action amounts to malice that is propelled by greed and covetousness. We declare that the said suspension is a usurpation of our constitutional powers and a reckless contravention of the Constitution of APC and will be, vehemently, resisted.
We urge the dissident members involved to eschew bitterness, tow the line of peace and decorum and restrain from divisive tendencies that are capable of destabilising the party. We also urge them to adopt dialog in resolving their personal grievances with Alhaji Taufiq Isa, from whom they have benefited from, immensely, rather than channelling their energy towards destroying the hard earned reputation of Alhaji Taufiq Isa, the Executive Chairman of Ijumu Local Government and ALGON Chairman and the peace being enjoyed in the party.
The call for the suspension of Alhaji Taufiq Isa from APC is unethical, unpatriotic and not in the best interest of the party even as we prepare to make our dynamic and digital Governor, His Excellency Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello, as the next President of Nigeria.
We will never support any ploy to destabilize our party for ulterior purposes.
We, hereby, pass a vote of confidence on Dr, Hon Taufiq Isa for his excellent performance in all areas of governance.
Hon Abdulfatai Aliu
Odokoro, Okoro, Araromi Ward.
