- Top members of APC in Ekiti have accused Governor Kayode Fayemi of playing god in the party
- In a statement issued by the aggrieved members, Fayemi was also accused of non-performance
- The 16 members also said that Governor Fayemi is orchestrating attempts to dwindle the growth of the party
Members of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ekiti state including Babafemi Ojudu, an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, have accused Governor Kayode Fayemi of making attempt to silence the voices of dissents in the state's party chapter.
The aggrieved members numbering sixteen raised the complaints in a statement issued on Sunday, June 28, in another unfolding drama that is about to trail the APC leadership crisis at the national level.
The members said since 2018 when Governor Fayemi was elected, the state chapter has not convened any "political meeting of stakeholders, no new membership drive, no political activity."
According to them, Governor Fayemi is striving to axe some members of the party's top echelons out in an orchestrated efforts to "hack" them down politically.
The aggrieved APC members also lamented the unjust suspension of some members in what they said is denying them their rights to serve in different government positions.
They, however, warned that the governor's action is capable of impeding the growth of the party and make members of the party dwindle in an accelerated rate.
“In almost two years, the party had not convened any political meeting of stakeholders, no new membership drive, no political activity whatsoever to rev up and consolidate the place and presence of the party in the state since inception of this administration till date.
"Instead of growth, the membership of the party is dwindling by the day. Indeed the more visible, the more the orchestrated efforts to hack the person down in a harvest of suspension," part of the statement read.
They also berated the Ekiti governor for non-performance, adding that since Fayemi took over in his second term no tangible projects have been done in the state.
Ojudu and the other fifteen members also challenged the governor to explain his efforts in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Otunba Olusegun Agbalajobi, a former Ekiti state governorship aspirant on the platform of the APC, has issued a strong warning following the crisis rocking the ruling party.
Agbalajobi who revealed this in a statement in Ado-Ekiti explained that if the alleged impunity by Ekiti state governor is not addressed the party may collapse.
The former guber aspirant went on to add that Fayemi should be held responsible for the internal crisis rocking the ruling party in Ekiti state.
