Bayelsa foundation suspends 6 members over inauguration of parallel exco

Yenagoa—A foundation known as the KEFFES Rural Development Foundation in Bayelsa state, has suspended six of its members, over the false interpretation of a court order and an attempt to change the organization’s leadership.

According to a statement sent to which was signed by Ngozi Amakiri, the decision was reached after an emergency meeting held in Yenagoa, the state capital on Saturday, which was attended by 26 out of the 32 members of the foundation.

The emergency meeting was presided over by Sele-epri Matthew, Chairman of the foundation, wherein the implication of the court judgement and the actions of the Tibi-ebi-led group were deliberated.

The statement reads in part:

“The court at no time or place declared Tibiebi Amadein the eventual winner as this was never part of the issues or prayers in the process filed by the claimant.

“The leadership of the house frowns at the following members: Messr Zilpah Osaisai, Decca Perekunakuna and Ebi Williams who ignorantly worked with the claimant and attempted an unlawful change of leadership.”

The statement noted that three members of Keffes who openly apologized to the house and asked for forgiveness be pardoned accordingly.

“That the house by way of a motion after deliberating on the evil and unpatriotic actions of Messrs Tibiebi made, Kofa Murphy Daniel, Noel Ikonikomo, Christopher Longlife, Amina James and Ebitare Joseph has resolved that given the impunity of their actions which has caused serious disaffection and negative publicity on the body, be accordingly suspended from the membership of Keffes Foundation without benefit indefinitely.

“That the house unanimously passed a VOTE OF CONFIDENCE on the Sele-Epri-led government and assured them of their absolute unflinching support,” the statement added.
