I remain Ekiti APC leader, my suspension a joke – Fayemi


Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, on Friday, deplored his purported suspension as a member of the All Progressives Congress in the state.

Fayemi, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, titled ‘Governor Fayemi’s purported suspension: A joke taken too far”, said those behind his suspension belonged to an “unknown group.”

The governor said, “The All Progressives Congress as a party is governed by laws. Members of the group cannot hide under their recent suspension to announce a dubious suspension they lack the locus to handle.

“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 these antics of the suspended members.

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

“Fayemi remains the indisputable leader of the APC in the state.”

A faction of APC in Ekiti led by Senator Anthony Adeniyi had on Wednesday announced the suspension of Governor Fayemi from the party for alleged anti-party activities.
