Party loyalists were amazed with the act of Alhaja Faidat Sarumi-Akintunde, the newly-elected chairman of Abeokuta North Local Government Area of APC of continued fraca with her predecessor Alhaji Akeem Sobayo.
According to the media person of the newly emerged chairman, Mr Ibrahim Adegbokiki who declared that the newly executive members just raked up to ₦2million Naira for their new party secretariat as against the high rise building like Ejalonibu house. With this huge amount.
The act of abandoning the existing secretariat without due consultation could be seen as not only usurpation of power but share wickedness.
It will be recalled that during the last Local Government party congress, Alhaja Faidat Sarumi-Akintunde emerged the party chairman for the LGA alongside many others to occupy different party positions. Once the new Executive body are yet to be inaugurated, the control and administration of the party secretariat at Ejalonibu House, Lagos Road, Abule Otun, Lafenwa, Abeokuta and other party activities remains in the hand of the acting caretaker committee led by Alhaji Akeem Sobayo, aka Alaga mesan.
It was reported that desperation and intent to victimise the vacating Excos has pitched Alhaja Faidat Sarumi-Akintunde against them by attempting to take over the administration of the party secretariat; an action viewed by many stakeholders of the party in the LGA as not just too immature but uncivilized as well.
Infolitenews gathered that Alhaja Faidat went to lock the party secretariat without informing the acting chairman. Hence, the property landlord denied his awareness of the development and order the removal of the padlock for the Excos to gain entrance into the building.
Alhaja Faidat invited the police who promptly arrested Alhaji Akeem Sobayo. Upon the intervention of the Local Government Executive Chairman, Prince Adebayo Ayorinde in the situation, the acting chairman was promptly released by the police.
This action of taking party matter to the police was strange among party members. Supporters of her candidature have questions like a yet-to-be-confirmed chairman is on victimising mission.
Some leaders of the party have started organising meetings where the latest move by the incoming chairman would be discussed and way forward for the party.
