The imputation of betrayal against Fayemi is coming on the heels of the suspension of Ojudu and ten others including Hon. Oyetunde Ojo, son-in-law of APC stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, by the Ekiti chapter of the party.

In response to their suspension in an interview with Punchng.com, the Presidential adviser in a veiled attack on the governor said he (Fayemi) was a fifth columnist in the party and contributed to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s victory in Saturday’s Edo governorship election.

He also alleged the Ekiti governor of working for the PDP in Oyo State.

“I remain a member of APC and a committed one at that. I am not like them; traitors who claim to be APC and go work for the Peoples Democratic Party in Oyo and Edo states,” he told the paper.

Fayemi and Ojudu have been at loggerheads over the running of APC in Ekiti with the former senator accusing the governor of alienating some party leaders in the state.
