download 8 2 APC Caretaker Committee Nulifies Suspension Of Fayemi , Ojudu And Others

*Disclaimer: Governor Kayode Fayemi, Other Purported ‘Suspensions’ a Nullity – APC*
The attention of the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to a purported and widely-reported “suspension” of the Governor of Ekiti State, H.E. Kayode Fayemi as well as an earlier reported “indefinite suspension” of some other party members in the state.
The actions are a nullity as the Party’s National Secretariat is yet to receive communication from the state chapter on the purported “suspensions”.
We strongly advise all members to adhere to our Party constitution.
Governor Kayode Fayemi remains the leader of the party in Ekiti State.
In line with the mandate of the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee and the President’s admonition to party members to ensure and support ongoing amicable and rancour-free settlement of internal party disputes, we call on our esteemed party members and leaders in Ekiti State to be duly guided.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Architect Paul Omotosho-chaired APC Ekiti State Working Committee is the authentic, valid and duly recognised Executive as no factions or divisions exist in the State Chapter.
SIGNED:
*Yekini Nabena*
Deputy National Publicity Secretary APC

Governor Fayemi ‘s Suspension Is A Joke Taken Too Far – Yinka Oyebode

GOVERNOR FAYEMI’ S PURPORTED SUSPENSION: A JOKE TAKEN TOO FAR
In his reaction to the purported suspension of Governor Kayode Fayemi by an unknown group, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Yinka Oyebode, described it as a joke taken too far.
Oyebode said the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a party is governed by laws, adding that members of the group cannot hide under their recent suspension to announce a dubious suspension they lack the locus to handle.
While one would have dismissed their claims as another failed attempt to polarise the party in the state, it is also important to put it on record that the action of the group smacks of criminal impersonation as none of those who signed the purported suspension letter were executive members of the party at ward, Local government or state level.
The action is but a joke taken too far as they never had such power they want to arrogate to themselves while they were members of the party, much less now that they have been suspended.
Governor Fayemi however remains unperturbed by this antics of suspended members.
Well meaning members of the public as well as members of APC are urged to disregard the news of the purported suspension as it only exists in the imagination of members of the group.
Dr Kayode Fayemi remains the indisputable leader of the APC in Ekiti State.

NLC proposed strike YVAN EMBARKED NLC PROPOSED STRIKE, CALLS ON EVERY SECTOR TO JOIN THE CIVIL PROTEST

NIGERIAN YOUTH FORUM EMBARKED NLC PROPOSED STRIKE AGAINST UNREASONABLE INCREMENT OF ELECTRICITY TARIFF AND PETROLEUM PUMP PRICE.

The Young Visioneers’ Association of Nigeria, a foremost youth organisation in Nigeria known as Nigerian Youths Forum, expresses unalloyed backing to the proposed Nigerian Labour Congress’ mass movement and industrial action against the on reasonable increment in electricity tariff and petroleum pump price scheduled to commence on September 28th, 2020.

In a press statement issued by the National Public Relations Officer, Comr. Oguche Diamond and signed by her National Chairman, Mr Ezekiel Oladimeji, the organization said: In a civilized society, NLC should not be the only organized body clamouring for immediate reversal with threats of embarking on civil action.

YVAN is amazed at the litigations of the Federal Government on increasing electricity tariff and the petroleum pump price at this critical moment in the life of Nigeria as a country.

The country, in the past few years, has witnessed serious economic hardship. With the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, Nigerians have experienced untold financial problems which have culminated to mass hunger resulting from the collapse of businesses and job losses. The youths, as usual, have been at the centre of this whole problem occasioned by the global pandemic and economic mismanagement by the Federal Government.

The Nigerian youths under the aegis of YVAN-Nigerian Youths Forum feel that increasing the price of electricity tariff and petroleum pump price at this time is the height of insensitivity to the plights of Nigerians, and ill-timed.

YVAN, therefore, supports the proposed industrial action by NLC, and the planned mass protest to be commenced on September 28.
The youth body also calls on other organized bodies – public and private sectors, and every civil society group to join forces with NLC in resisting this Federal Government’s anti-people’s actions.
