‘Suspended’ Edo APC Spokesman, Azebamwan fights back


The suspended Publicity Secretary’ of Edo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Chris Azebamwan has described his suspension as a nullity.

Azebamwan disclosed this in a statement, following a statement by the State Assistant Secretary, Ikuenobe Anthony Esq. in reaction to his alleged suspension by Edo APC, which also named Joseph Osagiede as acting State Secretary, ahead of the next Congress of the party.

Ikuenobe who claimed to have derived his powers from the provision of of Article 17 (vi) of APC Constitution, the party, said in the statement said the party “unanimously nominated Mr Osamudiame Edekere as the replacement of the suspended State APC Secretary, Mr Lawrence Okah, pending further directive.

But, Azebamwan in the statement on Thursday night, challenged the faceless characters behind his purported illegality “to ratify his removal if it didn’t portend such a grave danger to the supremacy of the Party as a legal entity”.

According to him, “My purported removal as State Publicity Secretary of APC, Edo State would have been laughable in its absurdity if it didn’t portend such a grave danger to the supremacy of the Party as a legal entity.

“I was elected to the position at a State Congress, and there are constitutional provisions for nullifying my mandate. There are conditions precedent.

“The press statement merely quoted a faceless Edo State APC, without indicating the organ of the Party that took the decision, or the grounds on which the faceless characters sought to hinge their illegality.

For the record, the position of State Publicity Secretary is not an appointment, it is an electoral mandate. Therefore, their pronouncement is a nullity, and an exercise in futility. Let them test its validity by obtaining its ratification”, he declared.
