The embattled Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Hon Isaac Kekemeke has described his purported sack from the party by members of the state executive committee as remote controlled, illegal and morally reprehensible.
The State Executive Committee of the party on Thursday passed a vote of no confidence on Kekemeke over what it described as neglect of duties.
Responding to his sack, Kekemeke said, "I have been informed through calls by friends / associates and the social media that some members of the state executive committee of the party met in an hotel in Akure and purportedly passed a vote of no confidence on me – the only elected state officer – and have asked that Mr Ade Adetimehin my adopted deputy acts as chairman.
"This scandalous and irritating move prompted by " a promise of pot of porridge for the action" by a segment of party executive, though not unexpected beats the imagination of many reasonable party people and non-party to victory
"Sincerely I wish I did not have to react to this remote controlled, illegal and morally reprehensible conduct of some rancorous elements in the State executive, who had on many occasions traveled this ignoble path without success
" Honestly some of those guys who am told are acting this shameful script can never imagine how happy, peaceful and mentally relieving I should feel, being free from having to deal or associate with them as members of my team
"Considering however, the many numerous calls and pleas from a wide spectrum of alienated party members who have expressed satisfaction and appreciation for our tedious pioneering efforts alongside others that earned our party victory through the 2015 to 2016 elections, I will respond for the collective good and health of our party
"In the mean time I urge for calmness amongst party members, as well will take sober and appropriate steps to redirect the Party."
