The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed the purported suspension of Governor Kayode Fayemi and other party members by a faction of the APC in Ekiti state.
The national secretariat of the APC in a statement on Friday, September 25, described the purported suspension as a nullity.
According to the statement which was signed by the APC spokesperson, Yekini Nabena, Governor Fayemi remains the leader of the party in Ekiti State.
Nabena urged APC members in Ekiti to support the ongoingly amicable and rancour-free settlement of internal party disputes in the party.
Meanwhile, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state has reacted to his suspension by a faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
In a statement by his chief press secretary, Yinka Oyebode, Governor Fayemi described the faction that suspended him as "an unknown group".
Oyebode said the APC as a party is governed by laws, adding that members of the group cannot hide under their recent suspension to announce a dubious suspension they lack the locus to handle.
Legit.ng had reported that the crisis in the Ekiti APC escalated after members alleged that Governor Kayode Fayemi supported Godwin Obaseki, the candidate of the PDP in the just-concluded Edo state governorship election.
A report by Premium Times noted that those who made the allegation are a group of politicians within the party in Ekiti who have been at loggerheads with Governor Fayemi for some time.
The aggrieved politicians are said to be led by the special adviser on political matters to President Muhammadu Buhari, Babafemi Ojudu.
