The All Progressives Congress,(APC) Ekiti State chapter, has again suspended two members of the party over alleged links with the presidential aspiration of the national leader of the party Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The suspended APC members are Kayode Adetifa and Jide Oso, of Ward 9, Owaye quarters in Ayede Ekiti, Oye local government area of the state.
The duo were suspended for allegedly fraternising with the South West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA), a political platform canvassing for the Presidential aspiration of the former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
This came about two months after the APC Chairman of Ward 8, Ado Ekiti local government, Mr. Clement Afolabi, was slammed with suspension over similar offences.
The suspension contained in two separate letters, was signed by the ward executives, including: Abejide Sola (Chairman), Bamisayo Abigeal (Women Leader), Oladipo Adekunle (Youth Leader), Fayemi Apeke (Secretary), and Oloruntoba Bosede(Treasurer).
Responding, the APC Publicity Secretary, Hon. Ade Ajayi, said the two were disciplined by party leaders for factionalising the party, saying the suspension has nothing to do with SWAGA.
Ajayi, who is also from Ayede Ekiti, said the report from the Ward indicated that the two were defying the party’s orders and dividing the party through their actions.
