Anti-party: APC expels Ondo lone female lawmaker


The All Progressiv­es Congress (APC) in Ilaje Local Government Area (LGA), has expelled Mrs Favour Semilore-Tomomewo, the lawmaker representi­ng Ilaje Constituen­cy 2 at the Ondo State House of Assembly, over anti-party activities.

The expulsion of SemiloreTo­momewo, the only woman in the state Assembly, is allegedly connected with the just-concluded governorsh­ip poll won by the incumbent governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

A copy of her expulsion letter, jointly signed by Mr Olamigoke Ajimuda and Taid Omosule, Ilaje Constituen­cy 2 Ward Chairman and Secretary respective­ly, was made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Okitipupa.

The party alleged that Semilore-Tomomewo worked against the interest of the party in all political meetings, and publicly wore shirts with the logo of an opposition party.

Meanwhile, all efforts by NAN to speak with SemiloreTo­momewo over the issue proved abortive as her phone has remained switched off.
