The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has suspended Senator Babafemi Ojudu, special adviser on political matters to the president, from the party, Igbere TV reports.
Also suspended are, Oyetunde Ojo, son-in-law to APC national leader Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu; a former governorship aspirant, Dr Wole Oluyede; Ayo Ajibade; and Femi Adeleye.
Others suspended from the Ekiti APC were Chief Akin Akomolafe; Bamigboye Adegoroye; Olusoga Owoeye; Dele Afolabi; Toyin Oluwasola and Bunmi Ogunleye.
Their suspension notice was contained in a statement made available to Igbere TV, on Thursday, in Ado-Ekiti, signed by the State Publicity Secretary of APC, Ade Ajayi.
According to him, “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.”
Igbere TV reports that some of the APC chieftains suspended from the Ekiti state chapter of the party are critical of the Governor Kayode Fayemi-led Ekiti state government.
They had recently accused the governor of working against the APC in Edo by supporting Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Sept. 19 gubernatorial election.
