Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has described his reported suspension by a faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a joke taken too far.
Naija News reports that a faction of the APC in Ekiti State had suspended Fayemi for anti-party activities.
Reacting in a statement on Friday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Yinka Oyebode, Fayemi said members of the group cannot hide under their recent suspension to announce a dubious suspension they lack the locus to handle.
Oyebode said: “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.
“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 this 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.”
