Nigeria’s ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied the alleged suspension Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi.
Naija News reports earlier that a faction of the APC led by Senator Tony Adeniyi suspended Governor Kayode Fayemi over alleged anti-party activities.
However, reacting to the development on Friday, September 25, a few hours after the report had circulated the media, the party National Secretariat in a statement by Yekini Nabena, Deputy National Publicity Secretary APC, said the actions are a nullity as the Party’s National Secretariat is yet to receive communication from the state chapter on the purported “suspensions”.
Nabena, therefore, strongly urged all members of the party to adhere strictly to the party’s constitution.
The statement reads; “Governor Kayode Fayemi remains the leader of the party in Ekiti State.
“In line with the mandate of the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee and
“The President’s admonition to party members to ensure and support ongoing amicable and rancour-free settlement of internal party disputes, we call on our esteemed party members and leaders in Ekiti State to be duly guided.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Architect Paul Omotosho-chaired APC Ekiti State Working Committee is the authentic, valid and duly recognised Executive as no factions or divisions exist in the State Chapter.”
In another news, the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has explained that the visa ban threat by the United States of America and the United Kingdom contributed to the free and fair September 19 governorship polls experienced in Edo State.
