The document which was addressed to the state caretaker chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun through the local government chairman of Irepodun South Local Government LCDA, Erin Osun, read, “We the undersigned Elerin “C” Ward 09 Ward Executives members of Irepodun South LCDA, Erin-Osun under the chairmanship of Alh. Adebayo Tajudeen had a lengthy Ward Executive meeting on the 16th of June, 2021.

“We reviewed the various antiparty activities of Barr. Kolapo Moruf Alimi and we concluded that he is due for suspension, as the Elders and Stakeholders of the party have been duly carried along and he is hereby suspended from the party (APC).”

When contacted, Barr Kolapo Alimi described his suspension as null and void.

He explained that “there was no allegation against me, I was never invited by any committee for a fair hearing. Article 21 of our party Constitution stated that they must give the member a fair hearing and inform the Governor before they can suspend him or her but none was done. I am one of the founders of The Osun Progressives (TOP) and they can’t single me out just because of that.”
