The crisis rocking the Alliance for Democracy, AD, in Ondo State on Thursday took another dimension as members of the State Working Committee, SWC, passed a vote-of-no confidence on the state chairman, Elder Adebobola Seriki.
Seriki's suspension was consequently announced. He was accused of gross misconducts and violation of the party rules.
SUNSHINE HERALD gathered that a member of the SWC, Pastor Arotiba was later appointed as an acting chairman, pending when a five-man disciplinary committee would have concluded its assignment of looking into the alleged infractions leveled against the suspended chairman.
Speaking to SUNSHINE HERALD, an executive member of the AD who doesn't want his name in print alleged that Seriki violated several sections of the party's constitution ranging from gross misconduct to running the party like his personal empire.
According to him, there was no transparency in the manner Seriki piloted the affairs of the party.
Accepting his appointment as acting chairman of the party, Arotiba pledged that Seriki would be given fair hearing, insisting that the current crisis would not affect the fortunes of the party in the forthcoming elections in the State.
He further said his leadership would work to steady the ship of the party to enable it make progress in the State.
All efforts by SUNSHINE HERALD to speak to the suspended chairman proved abortive as calls put to his line were not answered..
