Crisis:APC May Expel Giadom From Party

There were indications on Wednesday that the Ajimobi-led NWC was  considering disciplinary actions against  Giadom and two others.

It was learnt that the deputy national secretary would face a disciplinary committee  and if found guilty his expulsion would be recommended to the party’s NEC.

A party leader, who spoke on condition of  anonymity, said, “We have processes and procedures for disciplining errant members. When there are serious breaches and a complaint are received, an errant member or members will be made to face our disciplinary committee and if found guilty, sanctions will be applied. Go and read Article 21 “D (of the party’s constitution), they are all there.”

According to Article 21 D, such sanctions include reprimand, explusion, censure  and debarment from contesting on the platform of the party.

Attempts to get a response from Gaidom were futile. He did  not pick or return calls made to his telephone number. A response to a text message sent to him on the subject was still being awaited as of the time of filing this report.

The crisis in the APC worsened on Friday when its screening committee disqualified the Edo State governor, from Monday primary on the grounds that his credentials were contradictory.

The governor after his visit to the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday announced his resignation from the APC.His deputy, Philip Shaibu, has also left the party
