The leaders and Ward Executive members of All Progressives Congress APC, Ward 9 ( Nine), Opoji, Esan Central Local Government Area of Edo State, have passed a vote of implicit confidence on our leader, who is the current State Vice Chairman ( Edo Central), Chief. Dr. Francis Inegbeniki.
At an enlarged meeting attended by the leaders and Ward 9 Executives including party faithfuls, held on Wednesday 19th April, 2023, at the APC Secretariat, Opoji, the Ward Women Leader, Madam Grace Sado moved a motion that a vote of confidence be passed on the leader of APC in Ward 9, Chief. Dr. Francis Inegbeniki, and the motion was duly seconded by the Ward Youth Leader, Mr. David Irabor and it was unanimously endorsed.
The leaders and Ward Executives also condemned in strong term the purported suspension of Chief. Dr. Francis Inegbeniki, who is a member of APC in Ward 9, and also the leader of APC in Edo Central Senatorial district
We note and emphasized that Chief. Dr. Francis Inegbeniki worked very hard for the party in the just concluded Presidential, National Assembly and State House of Assembly elections.
We commend Chief. Dr. Francis Inegbeniki for leading the APC in Edo Central to win the Edo Central Senatorial seat and one House of Representatives seat for the first time since 1999.
We, therefore, state categorically and for the records, that the purported suspension of Chief. Dr. Francis Inegbeniki did not emanate from the APC Ward 9 and it’s Executives.
The Ward Chairman, Mr. Pius Ohen, called on the Zonal Committee and National Executive Committee of APC to disregard and discontenance the purported suspension as it is totally false, misleading, malicious and done in bad faith to smear the already earned good reputation and image of our leader, Chief. Dr. Francis Inegbeniki.
Chief. Dr. Francis Inegbeniki had built an examplary reputation and emulative character over the years both in Edo State and Nigeria in general.
Finally, Chief. Dr. Francis Inegbeniki remains a member of APC and leader of the party in Ward 9, Opoji, Esan Central Local Government Area of Edo State.
Honorable Roland Ekata former Council Vice Chairman said, Inegbeniki is the root that brings water to water the party in the local government, that the so called suspension did not emanate from Ward 09 Opoji in Esanland local government area as acclaimed by the dissidents.
Those who could not deliver their units or wards are those looking for ways to cover up their failure as such wants to forment crisis in the part.
“We the leaders , party members in APC Ward 09 remained loyal and we pass vote of Implicit confidence on our great leader, Chief Francise Inegbeniki .
