Ondo APC To Suspend Party Ward Chairman Over Assault On Commissioner

September 18, (THEWILL) – The Ondo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the alleged assault on the State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs. Adebunmi Juliana Osadahun.

THEWILL reports that the Commissioner was allegedly assaulted during palliatives distribution in Arigidi Akoko on Sunday, by Olumide Awolumate, the Ward Chairman of the party in Akoko North-West Local Government Area of the State.

Speaking with newsmen on Monday, the State Chairman of the party, Ade Adetimehin, who condemned the act, said Awolumate would be suspended by the party.

”We don’t tolerate indiscipline in our party. The erring Chairman would be suspended for being involved in such a public, embarrassing act.

“I have directed the party Chairman in the Local Government to bring everybody to Akure today (Monday) and we will deliberate and appropriate sanction will be meted out where necessary. But, the Ward Chairman would be suspended,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Majority Leader of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Princess Oluwatosin Ajirotutu, has called on the State Police Command to arrest and prosecute Awolumate.

“It is displeasing and barbaric to have viewed a video clip that surfaced and has caused pandemonium in the media space and Arigidi in Akoko Northwest of Ondo State following the directive of Ondo State Government on subsidy palliatives distribution across the State.

“The action of Mr. Olumide Awolumate on Hon. Adebunmi Osadahun is condemned and he should be arrested and made to face maximum disciplinary sanction by the Ondo State Commissioner of Police while the Attorney General of Ondo State should prosecute Mr. Olumide immediately.

“Assault on womenfolk should not be tolerated in any part of Ondo State and the country. Women deserve our caring in every situation because of their sensitive roles in society,” said Ajirotutu.
