Fayemi Set To Probe APC Leader

Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ifaki Ekiti ward of Ido/Osi Local Government Area have summoned former Ekiti state Governor Segun Oni to defend himself against some undisclosed allegations.

Oni, a former Deputy National Chairman (South) of the APC, had challenged Fayemi’s victory at the May 12, 2018 governorship primary in which he came second after he initially congratulated the winner.

The ex-governor, in his suit, claimed that Fayemi was not eligible to stand as the APC flag bearer because he did not resign from office as Minister of Mines and Steel Development 30 days before the shadow election.

Oni also averred in his suit the White Paper by a Judicial Commission of Inquiry raised by former Governor Ayo Fayose indicted Fayemi and barred him from holding public office for ten years.

Prominent party leaders, including the state APC Elders’ Forum had begged Oni to withdraw the case after the suit was filed at the Federal High Court but the former governor insisted on pursuing the case to a logical conclusion.

But the Ifaki-born politician failed in his bid to sack Fayemi from office as his case was thrown out by the Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti; Court of Appeal sitting in Ado Ekiti and the Supreme Court in Abuja which all held that his case lacked merit.

Consequently, the APC executives in Ifaki Ward II summoned Oni to appear before them within seven days to defend himself.

The summon was contained in a letter sighted by reporters on Tuesday, addressed to the ex-governor.

The letter reads: “We the executive members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ifaki Ekiti hereby request your presence at the Ilero Town Hall, Ilogbe, Ifaki Ekiti to clear some allegations against your person by some members of the APC Ward II, Ifaki Ekiti.

“Kindly indicate by informing the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ward II, Ifaki Ekiti the convenient time and date to meet the executive members within the next seven (7) days of the receipt of this letter.

“Please treat as very urgent.”

Confirming the disciplinary action to reporters on Tuesday, the state APC Publicity Secretary, Chief Ade Ajayi, said the party’s constitution provides for disciplinary action against any erring member.
