The suspended politicians blamed Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti for their ordea
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has suspended the political adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari, Babafemi Ojudu, and 10 other chieftains of the party indefinitely.

They were suspended for allegedly disobeying the party’s directive and failure to withdraw cases instituted against the party in court.

Others suspended alongside Mr Ojudu are Oyetunde Ojo, Wole Oluyede, Ayo Ajibade, Femi Adeleye, Akin Akomolafe, Bamigboye Adegoroye, Olusoga Owoeye Dele Afolabi, Toyin Oluwasola and Bunmi Ogunleye.

According to a statement by the party’s 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.”

Suspension illegal – Ojudu, others

Speaking on behalf of the suspended members, Mr Ojudu in a telephone interview with PREMIUM TIMES disclosed that they remain members of the party.

“We are progressives and we will forever be progressives. Those who claimed to have suspended us are the illegal people. We are challenging the position they are holding in court and they have no right to even be in the position let alone suspend members.”

He accused the governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi, of being the brain behind the suspension.

“We can’t be like the governor who is an APC member on paper and PDP in heart. He supported Obaseki and wants to destroy our party. We won’t allow that.”
