The National leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress has reacted to the suspension of Ekiti governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi from the party on Friday by a faction of party in Ekiti State.
The APC said, though, it’s yet to receive any communication on Fayemi’s suspension, it considered the suspension a nullity.
The reaction was contained in a statement titled, “Disclaimer: Governor Kayode Fayemi, Other Purported ‘Suspensions’ a Nullity – APC”, signed by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, on Friday.
In a caveat issued, Nabena noted: “The attention of the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress has been drawn to a purported and widely-reported ‘suspension’ of the Governor of Ekiti State, H. E. Kayode Fayemi, as well as an earlier reported ‘indefinite suspension’ of some other party members in the state.
Nabena said APC operates a Constitution that guide actions of members, noting that, the development remains a nullity, having not been communication by Ekiti State Chapter of the APC.
“We strongly advise all members to adhere to our Party constitution.
“Governor Kayode Fayemi remains the leader of the party in Ekiti State. In line with the mandate of the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee and the President’s admonition to party members to ensure and support ongoing amicable and rancour-free settlement of internal party disputes, we call on our esteemed party members and leaders in Ekiti State to be duly guided.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Architect Paul Omotosho-chaired APC Ekiti State Working Committee is the authentic, valid, and duly recognised Executive as no factions or divisions exist in the State Chapter.”
Recall that the state chapter of the party on Thursday, suspended a presidential adviser, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, and the son-in-law to Senator Bola Tinubu, Oyetunde Ojo, and nine other party leaders for alleged disobedience to the directive of the party’s National Executive Committee.
State Publicity Secretary of the party, Ade Ajayi, announced the suspensions via a statement in Ado Ekiti.
CAPITAL POST reports that a faction of the party to which Senator Ojodu belongs issued a counter suspension order in a letter titled, “Re: Dr. Kayode Fayemi anti-party activities”, on Friday.
