The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has blasted the former governor of the state and former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Segun Oni, over his proposed return to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
POLITICS NIGERIA reported how Mr Oni accused the APC of neglecting him after winning the 2018 governorship election for the party.
Meanwhile, the APC state Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, has denied the allegations.
Ajayi disclosed that his party never treated Mr Oni shabbily.
“The APC never gave Oni any unfair treatment, rather he was accorded the necessary respect and recognition when he joined the party from the PDP in 2014.”
“We are not surprised that he is going back to the PDP where he came from, but I don’t know the shabby treatment that made him defect to the PDP. He was suspended from his political ward because he offended them and instead of him attending the ward meeting to explain himself, he refused.
“The constitution of APC stipulates that anybody no matter how highly placed can be disciplined by the party. If he is now accusing the state executives or leaders, I will rather say he is an ungrateful soul because the party gave him the patronage he does not deserve”, APC said.
