Expulsion: Delta APC Apologises to Temi HarrimanFeatured, Latest News, News Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The All Progressives Congress, APC in Delta State has formally apologised to state party leader, Hon. Temi Harriman for erroneously expelling her from the party last year.
The unreserved apology tendered by the party was upon a court judgment won by Harriman following her judicial action that arose from her alleged expulsion by the state chapter.
Also as part of the terms of settlement of the action instituted by Harriman vide suit no: ID/ADR/86/15, before Hon Justice L.A. Oluyemi of the Lagos High Court which gave judgment on Tuesday 22nd June 2016, the party also reiterated its confidence in her as a leader of the party in the state.
The defendants in the action instituted by Harriman were principally, Prophet Jones Ode Erue, APC State Chairman, Comrade Chris Onodjacha, State Assistant Secretary, who caused to be published advertorials alleging that the state executive at a meeting on 13th April, 2015 resolved to expel Harriman among other persons.
As part of the settlement the defendants, Erue and Onodjacha stated that:
“That the said publication was done in error as there was never such a meeting, and the reason for the purported expulsion is without foundation. Accordingly, the expulsion is void ab initio.
“That for the avoidance of doubt, notice is given to the public that Hon Temi Harriman remains a bonafide member and a committed Leader of the Party.
“The Party therefore tenders its UNRESERVED APOLOGY for the embarrassment the publication has caused her person and reputation. The said publication is hereby RETRACTED in its entirety.”
She was represented in the case by the firm of Femi Kehinde and Company
