The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ogun State has condemned in totality the impeachment of Chairman of Ogun Waterside Local Government, Hon. Femi Onanuga, by his councilors, accusing Governor Ibikunle Amosun of masterminding the action.

The Publicity Secretary of the APC Caretaker Committee in the state, Mr. Tunde Oladunjoye, in a press statement forwarded to DAILY POST on Monday, accused Amosun of allegedly instigating those councilors against the embattled Chairman, “for his open support for the APC gubernatorial candidate, Prince Dapo Abiodun.”

The party argued that the action would amount to nullity and of no effect in the face of law, citing Supreme Court pronouncement on the power of executive governor to take such action, as they call for immediate reinstatement of Onanuga.

“Latest Intelligence Report at our disposal revealed that more Council Chairmen, Councilors, Commissioners, Chairmen and members of statutory boards have been slated for dismissal as a result of their principled support for their party’s gubernatorial candidate, Prince Dapo Abiodun. Of course, the latest act of impunity confirms the alarm that party has raised in the recent past.

“The illegal act of dissolving an elected local government administration by a state governor has been roundly condemned and decided against by the Supreme Court, the highest court in Nigeria, which described such action, in the words of Justice Centus Nweze, as “tantamount to executive recklessness which would not be condoned.”

The APC condemns in totality, this intolerant, illegal and provocative act by Governor Amosun in his desperate and greedy bid to continue to indirectly hold on to the reigns of power in Ogun State even after leaving office.

“While demanding the immediate reinstatement of the “impeached” Council Chairman, we are using this medium to again call on President Muhammadu Buhari, whose name the Governor has always been dropping, to call Governor Ibikunle Amosun to order before he , by his own acts, set Ogun State on fire,” the statement read.
