 Onyeka Owolle Mbaso, Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, has been placed on an indefinite suspension by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) over anti party activities.

In a suspension letter addressed to Mbaso last Friday, and signed by the APGA state chairman, Sir Nobert Obi, and Secretary, Tony Ifeanya, the party explained that Mbaso was suspended following findings and recommendations of an ad-hoc committee of the party which investigated his alleged anti-party activities.

“Sequel to the findings and recommendations of the ad-hoc committee that investigated the case of anti-party activities against you and after giving you an opportunity to defend yourself, and the party caucus being satisfied that a prima facie case has been established against you, do hereby direct that you proceed on an indefinite suspension forthwith pending the determination of your case by the Disciplinary Committee of the party.

“The (Disciplinary) Committee will take you further on these issues and allegations and recommend appropriate sanction.

“For the avoidance of doubt, your anti-party activities contravened Article 21(1) (d), (f), (g), (k), (n) and (o) of the constitution of the APGA (2014 as amended) and so, in a situation like this, the provisions of Article 22 (1) (b) of the constitution of APGA (2014 as amended) shall apply.”

Mbaso, who is from Ozubulu Ward III, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of the state, contested the House of Representatives election in the last election and was also the chairman of APGA Aggrieved Aspirants Forum.

Though Mbaso has refuted being served any letter, News Express learnt that offenses brought against him include, leveling “frivolous” allegations against the leadership of the party, just as he “has been painting the party black on the social media.”
