The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has set up a panel to look into cases of party members who have refused to withdraw cases filed against the party in court.

This was made known on Tuesday by the APC State Director of Media and Publicity, Elder Sam Oluwalana, in Ado Ekiti.

He stated that the eight-member disciplinary committee will be chaired by a former Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Patrick Ajigbolamu.

According to Oluwalana, the setting up of the panel was in line with the decision of the APC National Executive Committee.

“You will recall that on the 25th June 2020, the NEC passed a resolution directing members of the party not to institute any court action and to withdraw their cases in court in order to explore the internal conflict resolution mechanism of the party,” he said.

He stated that the committee is expected to complete the assignment in 19 days and forward the proceedings and records to the national body.

Some of the erring members listed include: A Presidential Adviser, Senator Babafemi Ojudu; a son-in-law to the APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu, Oyetunde Ojo; former governorship aspirant, Dr. Wole Oluyede; Ayo Ajibade; and Femi Adeleye among others.

The NEC directive dated September 7, titled ‘Resolution and directive of the NEC on litigation by party members’ and signed by APC Head Legal Service, Dare Oketade, to the state chapter, stated, “You are expected to forward to the National Secretariat all records of the disciplinary proceedings against them for disobeying the directives of the NEC issued on June 25, 2020.”
