Oyetund Ojo, a son-in-law to Bola Tinubu – a national leader of the All Progressives Congress – has been barred from participating in the fresh Ekiti governorship primaries fixed for Friday. He is a former member of the House of Representatives.
Bolaji Abdullahi, the APC’s National Publicity Secretary, said this on Tuesday after a meeting of the National Working Committee on the outcomes of last Saturday’s aborted primaries.
According to Abdullahi, others equally barred from partaking in the primaries are Ayodeji Omowaye, Rotimi Faleye, Kayode Afolabi, Oladele Ademola Samuel, Akintade Olayisade and Temitope Adewumi.
He further said that the secretary of last Saturday’s exercise – who was accused of working for Fayemi – had been removed.
“Virtually all the aspirants complained that the secretary has a close relationship with one of their colleagues and so we decided to drop him in order to guard the integrity of the process and not because he was found to have compromised”, he said.
More so, Abdullahi said, “All agent tags must bear the names of the aspirants they represent. All the agents in the rescheduled primary election are hereby barred from coming to the voting arena with their mobile phones.”
