Kogi State APC Suspends Deputy Governor

The Kogi State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) on Thursday suspended the Deputy Governor of the state, Elder Simon Achuba from the party for alleged anti-party activities before, during and after the 2019 general election. The party also based the suspension on some actions the Deputy Governor took that allegedly constituted an embarrassment to the APC family in Kogi state.

APC State Chairman, Hon. Abdullahi Bello who disclosed this at a press conference in Lokoja said the party has received several petitions from stakeholders in Iyano ward of Ibaji local government area where the Deputy Governor hailed from , alleging that Elder Achuba had discretely and openly worked for the candidates of the opposition parties during the presidential, national and state assembly elections in the state.

This is happening barely 24 hours after the state assembly began an impeachment process against the deputy governor.
