Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state may have tacitly shown his dislike for the 2023 presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress with the suspension of some members of the party in the State over their alleged support for Tinubu’s ambition.

According to former senator representing Ekiti South, Tony Adeniyi, who is also Ekiti State Chairman, South West Agenda for Asiwaju 2023 (SWAGA), the suspension of the members is insensitive and dangerous for the party’s survival in the State.

Specifically, Adeniyi condemned the recent suspension of Kayode Adetifa and Jide Osho, both APC leaders in Oye Local Government council of Ekiti State, over their sympathy for SWAGA.

The SWAGA boss said he was miffed by the alleged “incessant attempts by the Ekiti government to subvert the group and frustrate its activities through needless witch-hunt of members”.

The APC chieftain, therefore cautioned the party leadership to refrain from what he called “actions capable of crippling the electoral chances of the party in coming elections”.

“We condemned the perceived grim environment created by the Ekiti State government before and during the Tuesday inauguration of the state’s chapter and called on leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to caution the governor to desist from actions that can cripple the electoral chances of the party in coming elections.

“And as a result of these strange beats, we are calling on the National body of our party, the APC, to look thoroughly at the lingering political hide and seek of our government in Ekiti State and call this Hitler of our party to order. A government that allows the billboard of the opposition party to thrive but will not stand the one erected by its own party, is at war with itself and must be hurriedly rescued by stakeholders in APC,” Adeniyi said.

Senator Adeniyi condemned the ongoing victimisation of members of the group across the state and the recent refusal of government to allow SWAGA to erect its billboards in the state despite observing due protocol.

According to the Ekiti State SWAGA boss, “SWAGA is a group within the APC, rooting as well as canvassing Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to show interest in the coming presidential race and also mounting support for the party’s electoral success in coming elections.”
