The South-West chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday said it will expel lawmakers elected under the platform of the party in Ondo state who are supporting the Deputy Governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi.
Speaking with Independent’s correspondent, a chieftain of the party said it is at a loss as to why the APC lawmakers will be pledging their loyalty to Ajayi who has dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to him, there is a need for the party to weed out anti-party members so that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu can strengthen the party ahead of the governorship election.
He added that the impeachment of the deputy governor is long overdue.
“This process was long expected, in fact, some of us were becoming a bit impatient with the Governor”.
“From our observations, about six lawmakers of our party are supporting the deputy Governor who has since lodged to the PDP.”
“If they are also moving with the deputy governor, let them tell us where they belong, without that they will be expelled outrightly and their seats shall declared vacant. We mean business and nothing will be spared to support the governor to strengthen the party.”
