The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti State, has suspended the Special Adviser on Political Matters to President Muhammadu Buhari, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, and 10 other top-notchers of the party, over alleged disobedience.
Ojudu and other members were slammed with indefinite suspension as a result of their refusal to withdraw the case they instituted against the party as directed by the National Executive Council of the party.
Ojudu and his allies, who were opposed to Governor Kayode Fayemi, had instituted a case against the constitution of the State Working Committee chaired by Paul Omotoso.
Ojudu and his people alleged that the names of those occupying party positions from the ward to the State level were not duly constituted through a legal and recognisable congress in the state.
The NEC had in its meeting of June 25, 2020 and attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, governors and stalwart directed that all cases pending in courts should be withdrawn for speedy resolution of internal crises in the party.
In a statement by the party’s State Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, in Ado Ekiti, on Thursday, said the disciplinary action was taken against Ojudu and others, for defying NEC.
Others who were suspended include: Engr Ayo Ajibade, Oyetunde Ojo, Femi Adeleye, Bunmi Ogunleye, Akin Akomolafe, Bamigboye Adegoroye, Wole Oluyede, Olusoga Owoeye, Dele Afolabi, and Toyin Oluwasola.
