APC Rejoices As Buhari’s Aide Ojudu, Others Lose In Court
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has commended the judgment of the Federal High Court in Abuja for dismissing a case brought before it by Babafemi Ojudu and other members.
Ojudu who is the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Matters and some aggrieved chieftains had challenged the constitution of the Ekiti APC executive committee.
But delivering judgment on Thursday, the Federal High Court dismissed the case brought before it.
Reacting, the spokesperson of the APC in Ekiti, Ade Ajayi, stated that the ruling would deepen democracy in the State and the country.
“While the decision of the Federal High Court vindicates our stand that our Exco has always been overboard in all our dealings in the past, we shall remain committed in our determination to continue to rule Ekiti state.
“We remain a family and indivisible one, a sign for the opposition to continue to remain dormant and lick its wounds for ever in Ekiti politics”, he noted.
Naija News reports that the Ekiti APC had been factionalized with one part loyal to Babafemi Ojudu and the other faction loyal to Governor Kayode Fayemi.
The Fayemi-led faction had recently suspended the Political aide to Muhammadu Buhari.
The party acted on the report of the Hon. Sola Ajigbolamu-led disciplinary committee set up to probe Ojudu and others for alleged anti-party activities.
Others who were suspended alongside Ojudu are Engr Ayo Ajibade, Hon. Oyetunde Ojo, Hon Femi Adeleye, Bunmi Ogunleye, Akin Akomolafe, Bamigboye Adegoroye, Wole Oluyede, Olusoga Owoeye, Dele Afolabi, and Toyin Oluwasola.
Recall that Ojudu’s faction who accused Governor Kayode Fayemi of anti-party activities also suspended the Governor and the APC state chairman, Hon. Paul Omotoso.
The development saw the national spokesperson of the party, Yekini Nabena issue a statement nullifying the two suspensions and set up a reconciliation committee headed by Governor Nasir El-Rufai.
