APC suspends senator Jimoh Ibrahim for anti-party activities


The ruling All Progressives Congress in Ondo State has suspended Senator Jimoh Ibrahim, representing Ondo South Senatorial District, for his alleged involvement in anti-party activities.

The suspension was executed by 16 members of the APC Executive Committee of Igbotako Ward 11 in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State.

The suspension notice, signed by various ward executive members, cited Senator Ibrahim’s actions as violating the party’s constitution, particularly his decision to sue the party and engage in anti-party activities.

According to the notice, the suspension was enacted due to Senator Ibrahim’s disregard for party instructions, including a directive from the National Party Chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, urging cooperation with the party’s candidate and incumbent Governor of Ondo State, Honorable Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa. Despite this directive, Senator Ibrahim proceeded with legal action against the Governor and APC, and also encouraged his supporters to join the NPP, claiming he would soon receive the gubernatorial ticket from them.
