The South East Zonal Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress on Tuesday affirmed the suspension of Mrs Ginika Tor by the Enugu State Chapter of the party.

Tor, a Federal Commissioner representing Enugu State at the Federal Character Commission, was suspended over alleged gross misconduct, anti-party activities, and attempts to create a parallel executive of the party in the state.

However, arising from the Zonal Executive Committee meeting of the party in Enugu on Tuesday, the zonal leadership of the party considered the report of the Enugu State chapter suspending Tor and ratified it.

A statement signed by the National Vice Chairman, APC South East, Dr Ijeomah Arodiogbu, noted that the zonal executive committee has ratified the suspension of the commissioner from the party.

According to the statement, Tor had on March 10, 2024, allegedly engaged in anti-party activities and published statements whose purpose was to bring the leadership of APC Enugu and the Enugu State Executive into “disrepute, contempt, hatred and public ridicule.

“She also created a factional/parallel State Executive Committee in APC Enugu state, which is contrary to Section 21:2 of the 2022 Constitution of the All Progressives Congress as amended.

“The South East Zonal Executive of the APC hereby ratifies the suspension of Mrs Ginika Tor from the All Progressives Congress.”

The PUNCH reports that the resolution ratifying the suspension of the federal character commissioner was copied to Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, National Chairman of APC; Sen Hope Uzodinma, the governor of Imo State and leader of APC South-East; Chief Emma Eneukwu, APC Deputy National Chairman, South; and Chief Uche Nnaji, Minister of Innovation, Science and Technology.
