Fresh facts have emerged on the circumstances that led to the suspension of Kwara State Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Oshatimehin Afolabi Adenike by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ora Ward.
It would be recalled that on June 19, 2020, Oshatimehin Afolabi Adenike was suspended alongside her father, Dr Ade Afolabi and 2 others for Anti party activities in ORA ward by the party executives and stakeholders.
Fresh facts have now merged on the rationale behind APC Ora Ward party executives’ decision to suspend them.
Inside sources revealed that as at the time of her nomination, Adenike was not a member of APC neither was her father, Dr Ade Afolabi.
It was reported that she got her appointment on the magnanimous relationship between her father and a former Senator in the State.
On resumption of duty as Commissioner, she abandoned her duty to take up the struggle for control of the leadership of the party executives in her ward which was already in place before her appointment.

This party leadership tussle is spearheaded by her father in conjunction with a former Senator who is silently nursing Governorship ambition ahead of 2023. It is more or less a payback by Adenike’s father to the Senator for her appointment based on agreement.
Things got out of hand when all the baales and village heads, and the Commissioner in conjunction with the paramount ruler of Ora invited the party Ward executives and threatened them with removal from office if they refuse to abandon the AA support group and join the former Senator’s group.
The situation has deteriorated in APC Ora ward to a point that 2 parallel camps have sprung up. The general question in the ward now is “Are you for AA or PFM “?
To avoid the breakdown of law and security, the stakeholders convened at an emergency meeting where the decision to suspend the erring members of the party was made after due consultations with the party leadership in Ifelodun LG as well as at the State level.
Inside sources confirmed that the situation report is presently with the State party leader, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq who has promised to look into the situation.
