Governor Kayode Fayemi has been advised to settle his differences with aggrieved APC leaders in order to protect his administration’s legacy.
The advice was given by Prince Adeolu Tinubu, a chieftain of the party in Ekiti state on Monday, July 6, The Nation reported.
Tinubu pointed out that Fayemi’s development plan for Ekiti state can only be achieved in an atmosphere of peace.
He said chaos and political rivalry between the governor and party leaders would delay the progress and development in Ekiti.
“I appeal to the Governor Kayode Fayemi and the political leaders of APC and even other parties to eschew discord and embrace peace,” he said.
“There is no meaningful progress that can be made under the climate of discord, unhealthy rivalry, violence and general disequilibrium.
In another report, following the crisis that has plagued the APC in the Ekiti state chapter, former governor Ayodele Fayose has told two chieftains of the ruling party that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) doesn't want them.
According to Vanguard, Fayose told Senator Babafemi Ojudu, the special adviser to the president on political matters, and Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, former minister of works, to forget the idea of returning to the PDP.
The former governor explained that the PDP is not interested if they defect to the party neither are they in need of the duo despite their differences with the current state governor, Kayode Fayemi, adding that both Ojudu and Adeyeye have no electoral values.
Ojudu, however, during an appearance on a radio programme in Ado Ekiti, dismissed the speculation when asked if they will join the PDP, saying he would never contemplate such a move.
Meanwhile, the APC has begun the post-Adam Oshiomhole era as the new caretaker committee arrived at the party's national secretariat in Abuja to hold its first meeting.
The committee, which was constituted after the dissolution of the national working committee, arrived at the APC secretariat on Monday, June 29.
Apart from Governor Buni who is the chairman, the scribe of the committee, John Akpan Udoedege, Governor Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger, and Ken Nnamani, a former Senate president have also arrived at the secretariat.
