The factional State Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state has suspended Governor Kayode Fayemi, according to a report by Channels TV.
A statement by the faction signed by Senator Tony Adeniyi, Senator Babafemi Ojudu and others accused Governor Fayemi of numerous anti-party activities.
The APC SEC declared another faction of the party led by Paul Omotosho as illegal, saying the faction has also been suspended.
Governor Fayemi was accused of working against the APC in the recently concluded governorship election in Edo state.
The APC accused Fayemi of conniving with a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Femi Fani- Kayode, to "perfect the coup against" APC in Edo state.
It alleged that the APC defeat in the Edo state governorship election was celebrated by Governor Fayemi's aides in the Ekiti state government house and on social media.
The APC also accused Fayemi of supporting the PDP governorship candidate, Seyi Makinde in the Oyo State 2019 elections.
In addition, the Ekiti state governor was accused of standing against the nomination of late Senator Abiola Ajimobi as the deputy national chairman of the APC.
According to the Ekiti APC faction, Fayemi is fraternising with the PDP with the aim of getting the party's vice-presidential ticket should his bid for the presidency in the APC fails in 2023.
Similarly, Legit.ng earlier reported that some members of the APC in Ekiti state alleged that Governor Fayemi supported Governor Godwin Obaseki of the PDP in the Edo election.
Those who made the allegation are a group of politicians within the party in Ekiti State and they have been at loggerheads with Governor Fayemi for some time.
