The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress, APC in Ekiti state has seriously deepened with the recent suspension of 12 party chieftains.
POLITICS NIGERIA can authoritatively report that Presidential Adviser, Senator Babafemi Ojudu; son-in-law to Senator Bola Tinubu, Oyetunde Ojo; former governorship aspirant, Dr Wole Oluyede; Ayo Ajibade; Femi Adeleye, Chief Akin Akomolafe; Bamigboye Adegoroye; Olusoga Owoeye; Dele Afolabi; Toyin Oluwasola and Bunmi Ogunleye have all been suspended by the party.
This development was contained in a letter signed by Ekiti state APC Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi seen by POLITICS NIGERIA on Thursday.
The statement read in part that “the suspension is based on the recommendation of the investigative/disciplinary committee inaugurated by the SEC to investigate the disobedience of certain party members to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of 25th of June 2020, which directed members of the party not to institute any court action and to withdraw existing cases in court.”
Reacting to the development, Mr. Ojudu, in a statement to newsmen described the suspension as ‘illegal’. He also accused the Governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi of being behind the development.
