The State Working Committee (SWC) and the State Executive Committee (SEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State yesterday gave the embattled former chairman of the party, Isaac Kekemeke, seven days to formally resign his appointment or face legal action.
After reviewing the reports of the disciplinary committee set up to investigate allegations of negligence and anti-party activities against Kekemeke, the two organs of the party found him guilty of the allegations.
They also threatened to take stiffer action against him, if he fails to resign his appointment within seven days.
The party also directed Kekemeke to return the party’s properties and documents in his custody to the state secretariat.
The disciplinary committee, headed by Abayomi Adesanya, reportedly found Kekemeke guilty of gross misconduct and anti-party activities.
It was said to have established that the embattled party chairman worked for the Alliance for Democracy (AD) in the November 26, last year’s governorship election in the state.
Although Kekemeke did not appear before the committee, Adesanya said the panel relied on the evidence presented before it by other party leaders, including Acting Chairman Ade Adetimehin.
According to the report of the disciplinary committee, Kekemeke worked for the governorship candidate of the AD, Chief Olusola Oke, before, during and after the governorship election.
The embattled chairman was said to have been instrumental to a suit instituted by a governorship aspirant of the party, Mr Olusegun Abraham
