Fayemi’s suspension a nullity, says APC National Caretaker Committee

* Advises aggrieved members to follow due process in seeking resolution of disputes within the party

From NDUKAIHE UGWU, Abuja

The purported suspension of Ekiti State Governor and Chairman Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), Dr. John Kayode Fayemi (JFK) from the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been quashed by the party’s Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee, which described the action of the Ekiti State chapter of APC as null and void.

In a statement by Mr. Ade Ajayi, the party’s State Publicity Secretary, made available to journalists in Ado-Ekiti today, Kayode and some other party members, including Sen. Babafemi Ojudu and 10 were reportedly suspended indefinitely for allegedly flouting the orders of the party’s National Executive.

But, describing the purported suspension as a nullity, APC, in a statement issued by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena in Abuja, noted that the party’s National Secretariat was yet to receive communication from the State chapter on any such issue.

The party, therefore, strongly advised all members to always be guided by the party’s constitution in addressing any disputes in the party, insisting that Governor Fayemi remained the leader of the party in Ekiti State.

Tagged ‘Disclaimer: Governor Kayode Fayemi, other purported suspensions a nullity,’ APC noted that the “purported and widely-reported ‘suspension’ of the Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi as well as an earlier reported ‘indefinite suspension’ of some other party members in the State…are a nullity as the party’s National Secretariat is yet to receive communication from the State chapter on the purported ‘suspensions’.”

We strongly advise all members to adhere to our party constitution. Governor Kayode Fayemi remains the leader of the party in Ekiti State,” the statement read in part.

“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,” the statement surmised.
