END OF THE ROAD: See Why APC Finally Suspend Segun Oni Amidst Crises (See Details)

The Ekiti State chapter of the  ruling All Progressive Congress(APC) on Wednesday suspended a party chieftain and a  former governor of the state, Chief Segun Oni over suspected involvelement in anti-party activities.

But the former governor in swift reaction has dismissed the suspension.

In an official letter issued on May 1,2019 and addressed to Segun Oni, the party stated that the suspension of the former governor and former Deputy National Chairman (South) of the party is sequel to his refusal to honour an invitation by the party to prove himself innocent of the accusations against him bordering on anti-party activities amongst other.

The suspension letter  which was signed and ratified by he Chairman and Secretary of Ifaki Ward II, Shina Akinloye and Ogunyemi Taiwo; and 24 exco members of the party in the ward, including  the APC executive in Ido/Osi Local Government Area.

The letter partly 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.”

While reacting to his failure to honour  the  April 24 invitation  by the   party in  Ifaki Ward to prove himself innocent of the allegations of anti-party activities levelled against him,  Oni stated that “Who are they?”

He disclosed that

“I’m not a nobody in the party. So,  I cannot be expected to honour such a faceless invitation.


“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.”

According to a reliable source Oni’s problem  started with some members of the ruling started with the lack of eligibility law suit he instituted against Kayode Fayemi, the state governor   who  was the candidate of the  APC for the  governorship poll held  in the state last year.

It will be recalled that the apex court in the land, the Supreme Court dismissed a suit filed by a former governor of Ekiti State, Chief Segun Oni, challenging the eligibility of incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi, to contest the July 14, 2018 governorship election in the state.

While dismissing the law suit, the apex court in a unanimous judgment of its five-man bench held that it was statute-barred since the appeal was filed outside the time stipulated by law.
