After about eight weeks of recess, the House of Representatives has resumed plenary.

The resumption comes a week ahead of that of the Senate.

While it is unclear what would be topping the agenda of today’s plenary, one of the issues to be discussed could include the 2020 Appropriation Bill, among other things.

The National Assembly had repeatedly asked the Executive to submit the budget either by the end of September or by the first week of October to enable to them pass it before the end of the year.

They are, however, yet to receive the budget from President Muhammadu Buhari.

Gov. Fayemi Reacts To His ‘Suspension’ Says, ‘It’s A Joke Taken Too Far’

The Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi has reacted to his purported suspension by a faction of the All Progress Congress (APC), referring to it as a joke taken too far.

The leaders of an APC faction on Friday announced the suspension of the governor, claiming that five days before the Edo election, he hosted Femi Fani-Kayode of the PDP in the Government House in Ado-Ekiti and planned a coup against Edo APC.

Governor Fayemi in his reaction through his Chief Press Secretary Mr. Yinka Oyebode, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a party is governed by laws, adding that members of the group cannot hide under their recent suspension to announce a dubious suspension they lack the locus to handle.

“While one would have dismissed their claims as another failed attempt to polarise the party in the state, it is also important to put it on record that the action of the group smacks of criminal impersonation as none of those who signed the purported suspension letter were executive members of the party at ward, Local government or state level,” the statement added.

“The action is but a joke taken too far as they never had such power they want to arrogate to themselves while they were members of the party, much less now that they have been suspended”.

Mr. Oyebode noted that Governor Fayemi remains unperturbed by “these antics of suspended members”.

He urged the public and members of the APC to disregard the news of the purported suspension as it only exists in the imagination of members of the group.

“Dr. Kayode Fayemi remains the indisputable leader of the APC in Ekiti State,” he said

The Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has dismissed claims that he will be returning to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Governor Obaseki who got a second term on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said having contested and won on the party’s platform, moving out of the party will be a stain on his integrity.

“I couldn’t have contested on a party won on that party’s platform and then considered moving to another party,” Obaseki said on Friday when he visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

“It’s not a good thing to do, it’s not the right thing to do and I’m sure you will not encourage me to do that”.

Governor Obaseki was accompanied to the visit by his Deputy Philip Shaibu and some members of his cabinet, following his re-election as governor of the state.

On the issue of godfatherism, the governor said he will not participate in such activities.

Ekiti State Executive of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced the indefinite suspension of eleven party members in the state.

They include Babafemi Ojudu, a special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari and a former member of the House of representatives, Oyetunde Ojo, and nine others.

The spokesperson of the party in Ekiti State said the suspension was based on the recommendation of the Disciplinary Committee recently inaugurated by the APC in the state over the refusal of the affected people to withdraw court cases filed against the party as instructed by its National Secretariat.

“The suspension is based on the recommendation of the investigative/disciplinary committee inaugurated by the SEC to investigate the disobedience of certain party members to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of 25th of June 2020, which directed members of the party not to institute any court action and to withdraw existing cases in court.

“The decision of the SEC has been communicated to the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Planning Convention Committee,” the statement read.

Others suspended are Wole Oluyede, Olusoga Owoeye, Dele Afolabi, Ayo Ajibade, Toyin Oluwasola, Akin Akomolafe, Bunmi Ogunleye, Femi Adeleye, and Bamigboye Adegoroye.
