An executive committee of All Progressives Congress in Ekiti has suspended Ekiti governor Kayode Fayemi from the party for “anti-party” activities in just concluded Edo State governorship election.
The committee cited Fayemi’s “role in the recently concluded governorship elections” in Edo as contrary to the party constitution.
“For five days prior to the Edo elections Gov Fayemi hosted PDP big wig Mr Femi Fani- Kayode in the government house in Ado Ekiti in the run up to the Edo elections . It was here they perfected the coup against our party in Edo State,” it said.
“This is same Fani-Kayode who daily abuses President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the APC as a party as well a vital section of our country. We have evidence of that meeting.
“Fani-Kayode specifically said he has gone on his tour as part of an effort between him and Fayemi to build a cross-party alliance and few hours after leaving Ekiti he fired a shot at Asiwaju Tinubu.
It said it had evidence of celebration by “his aides in Ekiti government house and on social media.”
“We also recall his role in the gubernatorial election in Oyo State where he supported the PDP candidate to defeat the APC candidate. A second tranche of money he sent to Gov Makinde in the election was intercepted by soldiers. The courier Mr Ayo Adegbite, his Chief Protocol Officer was arrested and he immediately disowned and announced his sack . Mr Adegbite remains his aide till date.
He also provided support for a “PDP candidate who challenged an APC Senator Prince Dayo Adeyeye in the Tribunal. He moved the judges to Kaduna to deliver judgement when he knew what he planned against his party was unpopular in Ekiti. We have more to tell on this betrayal and traitorous act of his. APC Senator is out of the Senate today and PDP is in.
“The relationship between Fayemi and Senator Olujimi of PDP , the beneficiary of his treachery is known to all in Ekiti State.
“We also recall his resort to court when majority of party members nominated late Senator Abiola Ajimobi for Deputy National Chairman of the party. He fought Ajimobi till death.
“His fraternisation with the PDP in continuation of his bid for Vice Presidential candidate under the party ( if his bid for Presidential candidate in APC fails) was masked by commissioning of projects in Rivers State, a smokescreen for his consultation to woo the support of Governor Nyesom Wike last year.
The party has also declared a faction led by Paul Omotosho as illegal and suspended for “failure to emerge in accordance to the Constitution of the Party”.
It said Omotosho and his colleagues refused to respect court proceedings in which “hey are not only joined but appeared in court through the proceedings but defiantly disrespected the court contrary to the hallowed decision of the Supreme Court in OJUKWU vs GOVERNOR OF LAGOS STATE”.
It said only Senator Tony Adeniyi was elected as acting chairman of Ekiti state executive committee of the party and capable to call meetings henceforth.
The committee include:
- Senator Tony Adeniyi – Senator, Ekiti South Senatorial District (2011 – 2015).
- Senator Babafemi Ojudu – Senator , Ekiti Central Senatorial District (2011 – 2015).
