APC headquarters nullifies suspension of Fayemi, Ojudu, others

Yusuf Bello| The national secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday condemned the ‘suspension’ of the Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, by a faction of the party in the state for alleged anti-party activities.

A faction of the ruling party in Ekiti State had earlier on Friday suepended Fayose for supporting the re-election of the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, at the detriment of the Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the APC flagbearer.

Fayemi’s suspension came a day after some leaders of the APC in Ekiti were suspended from the party over their refusal to withdraw suits against the party as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari.

In its reaction to the controversy, the APC headquarters also rejected the ‘indefinite suspension’ of the presidential aide and about a dozen others.

The APC headquarters in a statement by its spokesman,Yekini Nabena, condemned the suspension of Fayemi, insisting that APC recognises no faction in Ekiti.

The statement read in part, “The actions are a nullity as the Party’s National Secretariat is yet to receive communication from the state chapter on the purported “suspensions”. 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.”
