Following report that the Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has been suspended by the All Progressives Congress, APC, the National Secretariat of APC has denied the “suspension”.
In a statement made available to IGBERE TV on Friday Afternoon by Yekini Nabena, Deputy National Publicity Secretary APC, said the actions are a nullity as the Party’s National Secretariat is yet to receive communication from the state chapter on the purported “suspensions”.
The party further advised all members to adhere to the Party’s constitution.
According to the statement, “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.”
IGBERE TV had reported that crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State worsened on Friday, September 25, as a faction of the party led by Senator Tony Adeniyi, suspended Governor Kayode Fayemi over alleged anti-party activities.
This is coming barely 24 hours after another faction loyal to the governor suspended Senator Babafemi Ojudu, special adviser on political matters to the president; Oyetunde Ojo, son-in-law to APC national leader Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and nine others from the party.
