Benue APC Chairman, Abba Yaro risks Suspension – Obande
Following ultimatum by the Benue State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress( APC),Abba Yaro to Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi to withdraw his statement on the APC Caretaker Committee in which he warned of consequences should refuse to withdraw those allegations within 24 hours,or face displinery action, a Chieftain of the Party has called on Abba Yaro to immediately resign or face immediate suspension.
He said Yaro has lost confidence of members long before the 2019 general elections where he was the informant to the PDP, thereby selling the election for peanuts.
In a statement by Hon. John Obande, he said his reckless statement on Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi, a Co-convener, Concerned APC Members (CAM), our Leader, who is rebuilding the Party is criminal and should be disregarded. We shall ensure Abba Yaro’s suspension from his ward beginning from Monday, 9th November, 2020.
Obande, a Chieftain of the Party in Benue South insists that, Abba Yaro is only playing a script to siphon money from the Caretaker Committee because he lacks the moral standing to recommend any displinary action against a senior member of the Party like Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi who was due to win the Governorship Primary election in 2019 before Sen. George Akume forced him to stepdown. He will contest again in 2023 and he will win. Obande said, Abba Yaro has no right to call on Comrade to withdraw his statement, he would be mentally sick to think that such a genuine movement for the soul of our Party will be thrown into the dustbin. Is the mandate of the caretaker committee not to reconcile members, Organise Convention and hand over ? So, what is the rubbish Abba Moro is saying or is he begging for food or recognition.
Already, there are series of petitions against the State Chairman ranging from abuse of office, financial misappropriation, lack of capacity and anti-Party activities since 2015.
