Anti-party activities: Osun Accord Party suspends chairman


Accord Party in Osun State has suspended its chairman, Victor Akande for alleged anti-party activities.

The suspension of Akande was contained in a resolution by six executive committee members of the party in the state during an emergency session in Ile-Ife during the week.

The suspension was also ratified by 13 local government chairmen who were in attendance at the meeting.

According to a communique signed by all in attendance, the party members accused Akande of partaking in party activities without carrying other members of the state executive and acting dictatorially.

They also revealed that the action was taken because the embattled Accord chairman failed to respond to the allegations levelled against him.

The statement alleged that, “Victor started some intrusive, obnoxious and misleading behaviours that had split the structure of the party.

“Akande cannot explain where he put the palliative from the state government that was meant for the Osun Accord party.

“He suspended 6 out of 10 members of the state working committees and majority of Ife/Ijesa Chairmen because they queried some of his mischievous character.

“Victor Akande installed his woman friend Oluwakemi Awogbade who hailed from Ile – Ife, as the vice chairman of the party without taking part in the State’s Congress.”

Other anti-party allegations levelled against him include: sponsorship of another group in the locality to form the parallel exco truncating the chances of an Accord party candidate, recruiting thugs to beat up party candidates in Ife South, using his position as party chairman to trade some Accord party members for accreditation of another political party in the state.

The resolution however stated that Akande’s suspension would last until he clears the air on all the allegations leveled against him convincingly.

Efforts to get Akande’s reaction proved abortive as he did not respond to enquiries by DAILY POST.
