The Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has been suspended by the State Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was confirmed in a statement signed by seven members of the executive committee on Friday.
According to the statement, Fayemi was suspended due to “his numerous anti-party activities, especially his role in the recently concluded governorship election in Edo State which is contrary to the provisions of Article 21 (A) (ii) of the APC Constitution.”
The APC claims Fayemi hosted a bigwig of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Femi Fani-Kayode, five days before the Edo Election, during which they planned a coup against the party in Edo.
The party also alleged that Governor Fayemi, played a role in the gubernatorial election in Oyo State and supported the PDP candidate to defeat the APC candidate.
