APC Nullifies Governor Fayemi’s Suspension
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has nullified the suspension of Gov. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State by the party’s state chapter.
The APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, made this known in a statement on Friday in Abuja while reacting to the development. He said:
“The attention of the APC national secretariat has been drawn to a purported and widely reported suspension of Gov. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, as well as an earlier reported indefinite suspension of some other party members in the state.
“The actions are a nullity as the party’s national secretariat is yet to receive communication from the state chapter on the purported suspensions,” he added.
Nabena, therefore, advised all members of the party to adhere to its Constitution, adding that Fayemi remains the party’s leader in Ekiti State.
The APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary further called on leaders and members of the party in Ekiti State to be duly guided and to work to support the ongoing settlement of internal party disputes.
He said this was in line with the mandate of the Gov. Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker and Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee and President Muhammadu Buhari’s admonition.
Nabena stressed that the Mr Paul Omotosho-chaired APC Ekiti State Working Committee remains the authentic, valid, and duly recognized executive.
The APC spokesman added that there were no factions or divisions in the Ekiti State chapter of APC as was being speculated.
