The All Progressive Congress, APC, in Kogi State has suspended the Deputy Governor of the state, Simon Achuba, from the party.
APC Chairman in the state, Abdullahi Bello, announced this at a press conference in Lokoja, the state capital.
The party based the suspension on some actions the deputy governor allegedly took which constituted an embarrassment to the APC family in Kogi State.
According to him, the deputy governor was suspended for alleged anti-party activities before, during and after the 2019 general elections.
Mr. Bello also alleged that the report of the disciplinary committees constituted by the Iyano Ward and Ibaji Local Government APC to probe the crises in the area indicted the deputy governor and recommended his suspension, to be followed by expulsion if he did not show any remorse.
