The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has recently ousted 84 individuals from its ranks, citing their involvement in alleged anti-party activities.
According to a statement issued by Tajudeen Lawal, the State chairman of the party, this move follows a thorough investigation by the State Executive Committee, which had set up a Disciplinary Committee to probe the misconduct of certain members.
Among those who have been expelled from the party, Rasak Salinsile stands at the forefront. Salinsile, formerly the Vice Chairman of Osun APC and leader of a faction aligned with Rauf Aregbesola, the former governor of Osun State and ex-Minister of Interior, was a prominent name on the list.
Also included in the list of expelled members is Biyi Odunlade, a commissioner within the cabinet of Governor Ademola Adeleke. The decision to remove these members underscores the party’s commitment to maintaining discipline and unity among its ranks.
According to the statement, “This disciplinary measure came in response to the allegations of misconduct and actions that embarrassed and brought the party to disrepute.
“The Disciplinary Committee undertook a thorough and impartial review of the allegations and the findings were carefully deliberated upon by the State Executive Committee.
“After a comprehensive assessment of the evidence and consideration of the committee’s recommendations, the State Executive Committee has taken the difficult yet necessary step of expelling the following members:
