#BREAKING: APC Crisis Deepens As Party Suspends Gov. Fayemi For Supporting Obaseki, other Anti-Party Activities | CABLE REPORTERS

The crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken another dimension, as a faction led by Senator Tony Adeniyi has suspended Governor Kayode Fayemi for alleged anti-party activities.

Senator Adeniyi, who represented Ekiti South Senatorial District between 2011 and 2015, was said to have been made Acting Chairman of the State Executive Committee (SEC) owing to what was described as the “absence of direction or directive from the National Body” and was adjudged as “the only one thus capable to call the SEC meeting as duly required by the constitution from henceforth.”

CableReporters had reported on Thursday, that the party had suspended Presidential Adviser, Senator Babafemi Ojudu; son-in-law to Senator Bola Tinubu, Oyetunde Ojo; former governorship aspirant, Dr Wole Oluyede; Ayo Ajibade; and Femi Adeleye.

Also suspended were Chief Akin Akomolafe, Bamigboye Adegoroye, Olusoga Owoeye, Dele Afolabi, Toyin Oluwasola and Bunmi Ogunleye.

According to the State Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, “The suspension is based on the recommendation of the investigative/disciplinary committee inaugurated by the SEC to investigate the disobedience of certain party members to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of 25th of June 2020, which directed members of the party not to institute any court action and to withdraw existing cases in court.”

According to a statement made available to CableReporters today, the SEC meeting in which Fayemi was suspended, was held on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, in accordance with Section 12.8 of APC Constitution.
