THE inside disaster rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, has festered, and the gladiators are prepared to return into the open enviornment to do actual battle. It seems two very huge political elephants are step by step unfolding their plans foar a giant struggle. Already, the grass is crying out.
In a transfer described by many observers versus the curiosity of Governor Kayode Fayemi and the state management of the occasion, executives and members of the APC in Ado-Ekiti Ward Eight in Ekiti State have unanimously handed a vote of confidence on the Particular Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Issues, Senator Babafemi Ojudu. Ado-Ekiti Ward Eight can also be the ward of Fayemi’s deputy, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi.
Ojudu has been accusing Fayemi of working the affairs of the occasion like his private enterprise, whereas the governor’s aides have been labeling him as overambitious. The management of the occasion within the state, supporting the governor, has pushed for the suspension of Ojudu by his ward executives for alleged anti-party actions.
However talking after a gathering on Wednesday, chairman of Ward 8, Ayo Afolabi, mentioned no quantity of intimidation and monetary inducement from state leaders of the occasion would make them droop Ojudu.
The place of the ward executives to spare Ojudu, Sentry learnt, has angered the governor and different occasion leaders whereas the identical determination has emboldened Ojudu and different aggrieved occasion chieftains to return out and tackle Fayemi and his supporters within the days to return. The implication is that APC within the state could also be headed for stormy waters within the days forward.
