The gale of suspension in Edo State of the All Progressives Congress (APC) continued as the party in Egor Local Government Area suspended former attorney general and commissioner for Justice, Henry Idahagbon, over alleged anti-party activities.

The party leadership said the decision to suspend him was reached after the submission of a report by the disciplinary committee set up to investigate the activities of the former commissioner in accordance with Article 21 (B) of the APC constitution (March 2022) as amended.


The suspension letter which was endorsed by the chairman of the party in Egor, Chief Emmanuel Iyase, Osaro Osa Eribo, (Vice Chairman), Hon Joshua Uwagboe, (Secretary), and 17 others was addressed to the State chairman of the party, Col David Imuse (rtd), Engr Lawrence Okah, and copied former Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

But the APC chieftain, when contacted to react to his suspension, said there is nothing to it adding that “It is just an April Fool joke coming at the end of April.

Portion of the suspension notices reads, “That Subject to the hallowed provisions of our party’s constitution and the right to fair hearing Barr. Henty Idahagbon was invited severally by the Local Government disciplinary Committee but blatantly refused to honor the invitation thereby flouting rules, regulation and decisions of the party (see article 21: vii of APC Constitution).

“That Barr Henry Idahagbon encouraged sponsored and openly aided aspirants against the party and devoted his chambers to challenge and file an action in court against the party which said case in suit no. FHC/13/CO/52/21 against the party without first exhausting all avenues for redress as enshrined in the hallowed provisions of our party’s constitution. This of course is in contravention of article 21. xi of APC Constitution.

“That we have irrefutable facts, that Barr Henry Idahagbon did not vote in the last Electons. This fact was further re-echoed by his ward chairman Mr Nosa Oviarobo at an enlarged meeting of APC Egor, LGA. Instead he was busy hob-nobbling with PDP leaders whom he severally mingled with and was seen in a political meeting at the GRA residence of the Esama of Benin
