The disunity among the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State still continues as members are determined to continue their litigation to get justice.
It will be recalled that President Buhari had urged the party members to sheathe their swords and withdraw court cases so that the party can settle issues amicably.
However, the aggrieved members have stated that they are determined to pursue their case in the court.
The group under the umbrella of the APC Stakeholders’ Forum headed by Chairman and Secretary, Senator Tony Adeniyi and Femi Acdeleye, respectively, in a statement issued to the press hinted that they will continue with the court case.
The statement read in part: “We are ready for genuine and sincere reconciliation where the injustices and illegalities perpetrated by the present leadership will be properly addressed.
“We do not want to lose elections in Ekiti again. If we allow things to continue the way it is, our fate in 2022 will be worse than the first coming of Dr Fayemi.
“Our action is a wake-up call. We are also not against our party members holding executive offices. All we are asking for is legality, fairness and justice. If we don’t have all these, as well as appreciable performance and inclusiveness, we may as well forget 2022.”
Responding to these, the state APC Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, said, “If they should defy the orders and fail to withdraw the case in court, then we will apply the party’s constitution in dealing with the situation.
“But we appeal to them to take the path of honour and withdraw the case honourably.
“The State Executive Council and Ekiti Stakeholders’ Caucus have also taken a position and said all members must comply.”
