The dream of a former Deputy Governor of Edo State, Mr. Lucky Imasuen to contest the 2020 gubernatorial primaries on the APC has suffered a setback as he has been disowned as a member of his ‘ ward’.
Imasuen who lives in Uselu and has claimed Ward 4 Egor local government area (LGA) for decades recently claimed he was from Uhen ward in Ovia LGA.
But Members of the All Progressives Congress, in the ward says that’s not true and distanced themselves from insinuations to that effect.
Rising from an enlarged leaders/ ward executives meeting held on Tuesday, the APC leaders unanimously declared Mr. Lucky Imasuen as a non-member of the party in the ward.
In a communiqué, party leaders said by virtue of Article Nine of the APC constitution as amended, application for membership shall be made to and cleared by the executives of the party in the ward of the local government area where the person was born, resides, work or originates.
They said and Mr. Lucky Imasuen has not met any of this requirements.
The leaders of APC Uhen ward in Ovia North East Local Government Area then advised Imasuen to remain in Egor Local Government Area where he is known to be playing politics.
The communiqué was signed by the ward chairman, Igbinosa Michael, Imuse Isaac, Ward Secretary, P.E. Ediagbonya, Local Government Leader, Bright Osayande, member, Edo State House of Assembly, John Ediae, Henry Enabulele and Osasuyi Kayode.
Other signatories to the communiqué are Destiny Oboh, Ogbewe O.C., Idahor Efe, Ebose Terry, Enoma Ayo, Igunma Joseph, Samson Osadolor and Barrister Kelvin Aigbe.
