Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State, Paul Omotosho has announced that the party in the State remains one Big family.
The APC chieftain was reacting to the statement credited to former Senate spokesperson, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye on Wednesday in Ado Ekiti.
The chairman expressed shock that a leader of the party like Adeyeye could link Governor Kayode Fayemi to the purported disciplinary action and subsequent removal of a ward chairman in the state.
In a statement in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, signed by Elder Sam Oluwalana, Director of Publicity
Ekiti State APC, Omotosho noted that genuine leaders of the party should not fan the embers of discord, but rather seek unity.
“I would have expected Senator Adeyeye, with his pedigree and status in the party to call me or even the Governor, who has no hand in the unfolding events in the ward, rather than accuse the governor wrongly in the pages of newspapers, ” he said.
‘It was unfortunate that respected members of the party would prefer to stay outside and throw bricks at their own glass houses all in the name of personal interest.”
Omotosho commended Fayemi on his giant strides in the state and thanked him for the support the administration has given to the APC in the state so far.
On the removal of the Caretaker Chairman of Ado Ekiti Ward 8, Clement Afolabi, the state party chairman promised to look into the development and urged the local government party machinery to find a lasting solution to the events that led to the purported sack of the Ward chairman in the local government.
Omotosho urged other party leaders to refrain from externalising issues that could be resolved in-house and amicably.
