The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Okada East Local Government Area of Edo State on Thursday suspended Mr. Vincent Uwadiae from the party for his continued absence from sittings at the Edo State House of Assembly.
Uwadiae elected to represent Ovia North East Constituency II in the Edo State House of Assembly is one of the 14 lawmakers-elect taking refuge in Abuja.
Uwadiae suspension was contained in a letter addressed to State Chairman of the APC, Barr. Anselm Ojezua and signed by Chairman of APC in Ovia North East, Etinosa Ighodaro and other party executives.
The party accused Uwadiae of making the people lose adequate representation at the state House of Assembly.
“We reject the continued absence of Mr. Vincent Uwadiae from the Edo State House of Assembly.
“The refusal of Mr. Vincent Uwadiae to attend the meeting of October 15 to appeal to him and direct him to resume sitting is an expression of intolerance that is contrary to the values that define Ovia people.
“We call on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to commence the process of recall of Mr. Uwadiae as elected members representing Ovia North East East,” he said.
