Oshawo Stephen (pictured with some executives of his ward), chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in ward 10, Etsako west local government of Edo state, says Adams Oshiomhole remains suspended as a member of the party.
Seventeen out of 26 members of the executive committee had signed a resolution lifting suspension on Oshiomhole, who is from the ward.
But in a statement on Saturday, Stephen rejected the action of those who signed the resolution, insisting that the suspension of Oshiomhole stands.
Oshiomhole was suspended by the party in November amid the misunderstanding with Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo.
“The suspension of comrade Adams Oshiomhole by the ward executives remains valid,” Stephen said in a statement.
“We stand by our decision and have no reservation on the action as it is in the best interest of the party. The ward executives as well as our counterparts at the Etsako west local government level stand by the suspension of comrade Oshiomhole for his divisive role in the crisis rocking the APC in Edo state.”
Also, Ezolomhe Rabiat, chairman of APC in Etsako west local government, said the suspension of Oshiomhole still subsists.
