The All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced the dissolution of its Kwara State Executive Committee, from the state to ward levels.
The announcement comes one day after Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, called for the dissolution of the leadership of the Kwara chapter of the party for alleged anti-party activities.
Lai had also said those who secured appointments under the leadership should resign with immediate effect.
He argued that since the entire state executive members had signified intention to leave, the national leadership need not waste time in recognising another faction led by Bashir Bolarinwa.
Making the announcement on Monday, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party said the decision was after a review of “some actions of some leaders of the party” and the “open calls for the Senate President to decamp to the PDP”.
“The National Working Committee (NWC) at its meeting of 30th of July, 2018 examines the unfolding development with the party in Kwara State, specifically the irregularities that characterized the conduct and outcome of the congresses that produced the leadership of the party at all levels (ward, local government and state),” the party said in a statement.
“The committee also reviewed the actions of some leaders of the party that emerged from the above congress who participated in an open rally calling on the Senate President to decamp to PDP.
“The National Working Committee after a careful and exhaustive deliberation on this and other development in the state chapter of the party and, pursuant to the provision of Article 13.4(Xvii) of the party’s constitution invoked its power as enshrined therein and hereby resolves as follows:
“1. To dissolve all party organs from ward, local government and state executive of the party in Kwara State.
“2. To constitute care taker committee at all levels of the party organ at: a. Ward; b. local government; and c. state executive committee of the All Progressive Congress in Kwara State.
“3. That Hon. Bashir Bolarinwa shall and is hereby appointed as the chairman of the caretaker committee of the state Executive Committee of APC in Kwara State.
“4. That this shall take immediate effect.”
