The All Progressives Congress, Ekiti chapter, has suspended two members of the party, for allegedly hobnobbing with the South West Agenda for 2023, SWAGA, a political platform championing the Presidential aspiration of the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The suspended members are Jide Oso and Messrs Kayode Adetifa who were APC members in Ward 9, Owaye quarters in Ayede Ekiti, Oye local government area of the State.
There is speculation that, the Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, is also nursing presidential ambition.
The suspension, contained in two separate letters, was signed by the ward executives, including: Abejide Sola (Chairman), Bamisayo Abigeal (Women Leader), Fayemi Apeke (Secretary), Oladipo Adekunle (Youth Leader) and Oloruntoba Bosede(Treasurer).
The letters dated May 31,2021, stated: “We noted from your activities in the party in the recent past that you have been working against the unity of the party even to the extent of creating a parallel ward that you named “SWAGA” within the ward.
“You sent in confirmation of your action through Mr. Jide Oso, a former ward chairman on 16th May, 2021 to the ward that you have created another venue for this purpose.
“You as well were invited to the general Executive and leaders’ meeting on 20th May, 2021 to explain your action and you confirmed that the message of Mr Jide Oso was sent by you as his principal and that you would not stop your parallel meeting for any reason.
