At a meeting last week to select candidates to stand for Evelyn ward in the next elections, the local party members chose new boy Jamie Milne to run alongside long-serving councillors Crada Onuegbu and Sam Owolabi-Oluyole.
The shake-up is unlikely to come as much of a surprise to observers, given that Abidoye became mired in controversy just two weeks after she was elected. A story in News Shopper revealed that she had been suspended from her nursing job while under investigation as a result of allegations questioning her honesty and integrity.
The revelation was not just frustrating for the constituents who elected her, it was highly embarrassing for the local party members responsible for selecting Abidoye in the first place. Let's hope they have been more thorough with their questioning this time, and that there's no skeletons tucked away in Milne's closet.
