From Kenneth Iguisi, Benin City
Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday recommended the removal of Edo State Commissioner for Arts, Culture and Tourism Development, Mr Osazee Osemwegie-Ero.
The aggrieved youths accused him of meddling with the list of Ukpato Ward 6 party executives in Orhionmwon Local Government Area in the state.
The group also berated the APC Scribe, Mr Lawrence Okah for allegedly breaching the consensus arrangement in the Ward by high-ranking APC leaders led by Deputy Governor of the state, Philip Shaibu.
The APC Ward Congresses was conducted in Edo State last Saturday.
Comrade Alatsha Elvis, Ukpato ward 6 leader of APC, made these known to newsmen during a peaceful protest at APC Secretariat yesterday in Benin City, the State capital.
The youths who bore placards with different inscriptions, in the petition on the alleged change of harmonisation of Ukpato Ward executives, were presented to the state Administrative Secretary of APC, Mr Nelson Alegimenlen on behalf of the party leadership
“He (Lawrence Okah) should be sanctioned for illegally disrupting a harmonisation process that was painstakingly supervised by the state Deputy governor. This is the height of indiscipline.
The group in the petition said: “this conduct of the state Secretary is capable of undermining the peace, harmony and unity that the party endeavours to foster among its members, especially in Orhionmwon LGA”.
Responding to the allegations, the state Commissioner for Arts, Culture and Tourism Development, Mr Osazee Osemwegie-Ero, described the allegations as baseless.
He, however, urged the aggrieved youths “to continue the protest and he is not bothered”.
Also speaking, APC state Secretary, Lawrence Okah, said: “They did not alter any list, but, we are working on the list submitted by the Ward leaders”.
