Scores of All Progressives Congress (APC) members on Monday stormed party secretariat and ‘dissolved’ the state Exco led by Chief Jide Awe.
They installed a new caretaker Exco led by Mr. Kayode Egunjobi.
The irate party members locked the secretariat and occupied it for about two hours before policemen came to prevent the breakdown of law and order.
They said the dissolution of the Exco was in line with Article 21 of the party constitution.
Led by Adeoye Aribasoye, the protesters accused Awe of bungling last Saturday’s primary, mismanagement of party finances and working against the conduct of primary.
Egunjobi promised to restore order to the party.
But Awe maintained that he remains the chairman.
He said there are processes for the dissolution of the state Exco
Awe maintained that it was wrong for some people to storm secretariat claiming to sack him and his “validly elected Exco.”
