The Action Alliance (AA), has disowned Kenneth Obidike Udeze, who purportedly claims to be the National Chairman of the party.
This was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of an emergency Virtual National Executive Council meeting held on Monday.
The communique signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Olu Omotoso, stated that Udeze ceased to be a member of Action Alliance since February 14, 2020.
The communique added that Udeze was found wanting on several allegations bordering on criminal diversions of party funds, unilateral alteration of party papers and documents, forgery and anti-party activities.
“A disciplinary committee was setup to look into these allegations, he was invited to defend himself, and he blatantly refused to so do.
“Upon the third invitation in accordance with our party constitution, the committee drew up and submitted its report.
“NTTC, the highest ruling caucus of our party sat and review the recommendations of the committee. The caucus gave him another lifeline to come and defend himself, he also refused to do so till the lifeline lapsed.
“Thereafter, the caucus suspended him at its scheduled meeting monitored by INEC as required by law.”
The communique explained that follow-up to his suspension, and his refusal to come up with a defense against all allegations against him, the National Convention of the party resolved and expelled him on February 14, 2020.
“This Convention was adequately monitored by INEC, he was formally informed, and it was also widely publicized.
“He has since went to five (5) different Courts to ask for reinstatement as chairman, and all five Courts have ruled against him.
“He has employed many strategies to arm twist the courts to procure judgment in his usual way, but has not succeeded, hence his new approach to deceive the people by using the media to strangulate facts.”
” Kenneth Obidike Udeze is an impersonator, a liar, a political charlatan that has no other means of livelihood other than political machination.
“Kenneth Obidike Udeze is no longer a member of Action Alliance since his expulsion from the party on the 14th of February, 2020.
” Kenneth Obidike Udeze is currently answering to criminal charges bothering on forgery, alteration of official documents and other charges at an Osogbo court, he is currently on bail from Ilesa prison.
“Members of the public should beware of this impostor parading himself as what he is not, as whoever get scammed or duped by him in the process, shall have himself to blame after this release.”
