The suspension of the national president of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has aroused the reactions of Nigerians.
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that the APC in Edo state suspended Oshiomhole on Tuesday State President Anselm Ojezua, who announced this in a statement Tuesday night, said Oshiomhole’s suspension followed the vote of distrust given by APC presidents in the 18 local government areas (LGA) of the state.
