The National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the suspension of Ekiti Governor, Kayode Fayemi.
On Friday, a faction of the state chapter announced the decision.
It also announced the suspension of the Paul Omotosho-led Ekiti executive committee.
Members of the camp included top stalwarts like President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on Political Matters, Femi Ojudu.
APC declared that the action was a nullity.
It noted that the national secretariat was yet to receive communication from the state chapter on the 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 spokesman, Yekini Nabena, said in a statement.
“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 rejoinder added.
