The All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State on Wednesday suspended a former governor of the state, Chief Segun Oni, for alleged anti-party activities.
But Oni dismissed the said suspension with a wave of the hand.
In a letter dated May 1, 2019 addressed to Oni, the APC said the suspension of the former Deputy National Chairman (South) of the party followed his refusal to honour an invitation to clear himself of the allegations of anti-party activities levelled against him.
The letter was signed by the Chairman and Secretary of Ifaki Ward II, Shina Akinloye and Ogunyemi Taiwo; 24 executive members of the party in the ward; and the APC executive in Ido/Osi Local Government Area.
The letter reads, “We, the undersigned executive members of the APC, hereby suspend you indefinitely from our great party based on your refusal to honour our invitation for investigation into the allegations of anti-party activities levelled against you by members of our party.”
But Oni said, “I’m not sure. There is a structure in the party. There is a way things are done in the party.”
On his failure to honour the April 24 invitation by the party’s branch in Ifaki Ward to clear himself of the allegations of anti-party activities levelled against him, Oni said, “Who are they?”
“Who are they? What is their pedigree? If a group of rascals signed a letter, how could they expect me to give any thought to such? Let those who wrote the letter show face.”
Our correspondent learnt that Oni’s problem with some members of the party began with the eligibility suit he instituted against Governor Kayode Fayemi, who was the candidate of the APC for the governorship election in the state last year.
