The All Progressives Congress in Igbotako Ward II, Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State has suspended the senator representing Ondo South, Jimoh Ibrahim.

The senator was alleged to have involved in anti-party party activities.

This was contained in a statement signed on Wednesday by 29 executive members of the party, including the chairman and secretary in the ward, Mr Adetokunbo Adetola and Sola Omotoye respectively.

The excos, in a statement titled ‘APC suspends Senator Jimoh Ibrahim Folorunso over insubordination and anti-party activities’, said the decision was taken during the meeting of the executive.

The statement read, “We, the members of the APC Executive Committee of Igbotako Ward II in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State, convened meeting on Monday, May 13th, 2024. During our meeting, we deliberated extensively on various issues affecting the progress and development of our party, notably indiscipline and insubordination among some members.

“We have found Senator Jimoh Ibrahim’s actions and activities to be in violation of the party’s constitution, particularly his decision to sue the party as well as his anti-party activities. As such, we have resolved to take appropriate disciplinary action against him as outlined in the party’s constitution. Senator Jimoh Folorunso Ibrahim is hereby suspended from the APC , with immediate effect for acts of insubordination and anti-party activities In accordance with Article 21, Section A of APC Constitution.

“It is worth recalling that the National Party Chairman of APC, Alhaji Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, met with all Ondo State governorship aspirants on April 25th, 2024, in Abuja. During the meeting, he urged them to cooperate with the party’s candidate and incumbent Governor of Ondo State, Honorable Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa.

"Despite this, Senator Jimoh Ibrahim Folorunso proceeded to sue the Governor and APC, blatantly disregarding party instructions. Additionally, he has engaged in anti-party activities by urging his supporters in Igbotako and Ondo State to join NNPP, claiming he will soon receive the gubernatorial ticket from them. Senator Jimoh has openly declared his intent to disrupt APC before leaving the party, as evidenced by his actions in the Federal High Court in Abuja and his derogatory remarks about APC in various media outlets.”

Senator Ibrahim has challenged the outcome of the April 20 primary of the APC won by Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
