JUST IN: APC nullifies suspension of Fayemi, Ojodu, others

The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has nullified the suspension of Governor Kayode Fayemi and other party members in Ekiti state.

Yekini Nabena, Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, made this known in a statement titled, “Disclaimer: Governor Kayode Fayemi, Other Purported ‘Suspensions’ a Nullity – APC”, on Friday.

Nabena noted that the actions are a nullity, adding that the party was yet to receive any communication to this effect.

Nabena said, “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.

“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.

“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.”

Standard News reports that a faction of the party in Ekiti suspended a presidential adviser, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, and ten other party leaders for alleged disobedience to the directive of the party’s National Executive Committee.

In response, a faction of the party to which Senator Ojodu belongs to suspended the state governor and the State Executives from the party.
