The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State has announced the suspension of a former member of the House of Representatives, Henry Ofongo over alleged anti-party activities.
The party also suspended Godwin Sidi, Peter Ozobo, Moses Hitler and Brown Ebide.
It was however learnt that Ofongo was suspended due to his alleged refusal to accept party verdict to drop the suit filed against the party’s candidate in the Bayelsa Central Senatorial by-election in the state.
Henry Ofongo, in his reaction, rejected the allegation of anti-party acts levelled against him, describing his decision to approach the court over the non-qualification of the party’s central senatorial candidate, Chief Abel Ebifemowei as legal and in line with the party constitution.
Ofongo argued that he was not in court to challenge the party or the primaries of the party but the eligibility of the candidate.
