Fayemi Speaks On His ‘Purported’ Suspension By APC



Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi, has reacted to his purported suspension by the a faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Fayemi said the alleged suspension smacks of ‘criminal investigation’ as those involved do not have the power to take such decision because they are not members of the party’s executive in the state.


Fayemi, who spoke through his chief press secretary, Yinka Oyebode, described his suspension as “a joke taken too far”.

Fayemi was suspended earlier today by a faction of the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) loyal to Babafemi Ojudu, special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on political matters.


Ojudu and 10 other party members were suspended on Thursday for “contravening” the party’s directive.

Reacting in a statement on Friday, Oyebode Implored the public to disregard the suspension, noting that the faction has no power to do so.


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 authority to issue.

“While one would have dismissed their claims as another failed attempt to polarise the party in the state, it is also important to put it on record that the action of the group smacks of criminal impersonation as none of those who signed the purported suspension letter were executive members of the party at ward, Local government or state level,” he said.


“The action is but a joke taken too far as they never had such power they want to arrogate to themselves while they were members of the party, much less now that they have been suspended.

“Governor Fayemi however remains unperturbed by these antics of suspended members.


“Well-meaning members of the public as well as members of APC are urged to disregard the news of the purported suspension as it only exists in the imagination of members of the group.

“Dr Kayode Fayemi remains the indisputable leader of the APC in Ekiti State.”
