Few months after the general elections, members of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) are still basking in the euphoria of the success they recorded at the polls, particularly in Ondo State, where the party won the presidential poll and swept most of the national and state assembly seats.
While members of the party are anticipating rewards for their efforts, it was the other way round for some party members in Akoko South West and Akoko South East Local Councils.
Not less than 61 members from the two local councils were recently suspended over what was described as their alleged involvement in anti-party activities.
Specifically, the local chapters of the party disclosed that the affected members undermined the chances of the APC during the February 25 and March 18 election.
During the House of Assembly election in the state, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won in Akoko Northwest II, Akoko Southwest 1, and Akoko Southwest II, an outcome that shocked APC members, as the axis had been the strongholds of the party.
As a result, the situation degenerated into a blame game when party leaders in the areas were questioned about why the APC lost in what was supposed to be a cakewalk for the ruling party.
