However, according to a communique signed by Ogieh Samson (Assistant Secretary), Ibrahim Riwanu (Assistant Treasurer) and twenty other members of the Exco of the party in the LGA, it alleged that the conduct of the chairman has created disunity among party members and the LGA Exco and it has polarized the party.
“The LGA has become an appendage of government through the active convenience of Sir Adogha contrary to all norms and practices. For reasons best known to him, he has moved the party secretariat from Agenebode to South Ibie Auchi which is the administrative headquarters of Etsako West.
“With the above and many more not mentioned, we the members of the LGA Working Committee and other members of the Exco, do hereby state and pass a vote of no confidence on him and hereby pronounced him suspended as chairman of Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo State.
