EKITI APC GOV PRIMARY: Why Fayemi walked out of meeting with Tinubu

Ekiti-APC-Primaries

According to Bolaji, the party considered the report submitted to it by the Governor Tanko Al-Makura-led panel sent to conduct the exercise.

The letter read in part: "The direct primaries option is a flagrant denial of the rights of the delegates who have been empowered through electoral process by the financial members of their wards otherwise called Ward Congress to vote for the governorship aspirant of their choice in primary elections to elect party's candidates".

"The Aspirants encouraged the leaders to further discuss with the National Chairman of the party, His Excellency, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, on the way forward".

Numerous key aspirants in Ekiti are believed to be in attendance at Tuesday's meeting. May 11 has been announced as the new date for the primary.

One of the aspirants, Ajayi Olowo revealed this to newsmen after a meeting they held with the APC National Working Committee.

After the first round of talks which lasted for more than two hours, Chief Bisi Akande stepped out of the hall of the meeting closely followed by Tinubu.

On whether the meeting took a position on consensus, he said, "We take a decision on what will be of the best advantage to our party and the country".

He said, "We (leaders) were asked to go and meet and come up with a decision..."

Arise, who represented Ekiti North at the Senate between 2007-2011 described the May 5, botched governorship primary election as "unfortunate and total embarrassment" adding that the party is conducting investigation and following up on what led to the disruption and would apportion appropriate sanction on those responsible for the fiasco.

He said, "Primary election is already written in our constitution but all we want is the happiness of the generality of the leadership, the contestants and our party in general".

This fueled speculations that he walked out of the meeting.

The minister, in a statement on Wednesday signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Yinka Oyebode, said contrary to "misleading" media reports, he did not storm out of the meeting but left the venue "like other attendees, at the end of the meeting".
