Ekiti APC Suspends Buhari’s Aide Ojudu, 10 Others


The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has suspended the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu and 10 other chieftains of the state chapter, over alleged anti-party activities.

It was gathered that the suspension followed the recommendation of a 10-member disciplinary panel led by Patrick Ajigbolamu.

The committee was set up by the state chapter in line with a directive from the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker Committee, following the refusal of Ojudu and others to comply with the directive to withdraw pending cases against the party from the court.

The NEC had at its meeting of June 25 directed that all cases pending in courts should be withdrawn for speedy resolution of internal crises in the party.

Ojudu and his allies had instituted a case challenging the process that produced the party’s exco members at the state, local government and ward levels.

Ojudu and others alleged that the names of those occupying party positions from the ward to the state levels were not duly constituted through a legal and recognisable congress.

In a statement signed by the state Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, in Ado-Ekiti yesterday, the party said the disciplinary action was taken against Ojudu and others, for defying NEC.

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