APC youths warns party leader against disrupting peace in Ekiti
Youths in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State, under the
aegis of Ekiti APC Youths Congress (EAYC) have warned leaders of the
party against any unnecessary protests aimed at causing chaos in the
The youths said three buses loaded with thugs arrived Iyin-Ekiti today
and challenged leaders of the party to put their own children forward
to lead whatever protest they were planning before expecting youths in
the party to join them.
In a press statement issued on Friday and jointly signed by Mr Tope
Ogunkuade and Comrade Tunji Adeleye, Convener and Secretary
respectively, the EAYC cautioned youths in the APC against
participating in any protest being planned to create anarchy in the
State with a view to imposing emergency rule.
They alleged that the protest being planned for next week was meant to
be bloody, with some APC vehicles to be destroyed so as to create
tension in the State, cautioning that no responsible youth in the APC
should present himself to be killed for state of emergency to be
declared in Ekiti.
The youths, who alleged that over 200 thugs were being mobilised from
neighbouring Osun State to cause mayhem during a protest being planned
for next week Tuesday, noted that the “Fayose must go” approach of the
party leaders was becoming irritating.
Again, the likes of Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Barrister Femi Falana,
Chief Segun Oni, Otunba Niyi Adebayo, Dr Kayode Fayemi, Femi Bamisile
and others should bring their own children to Ekiti to lead protests
against Fayose if they want the youths to join any protest.
The youths said even though they remained committed to the APC and
believed that the party would have provided governance than the State
is witnessing, throwing the State into chaos with the thinking that a
state of emergency would be imposed just to get rid of Governor Fayose
should not be an option to any lover of Ekiti.
Instead of wasting millions of naira on needless protests, our party
leaders should use whatever financial resources that they have to
empower members of the party in Ekiti State who are living in abject
Rather than this Fayose must be removed agenda that have not
materialised since 2014, what Ekiti people want from us is how our
party would have done better if it was in power.
