Some youths in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State,
under the auspices of Ekiti APC Youths Congress (EAYC), have described
the food items distributed as Covid-19 relief package by the Senator
representing Ekiti South Senatorial district, Biodun Olujimi as Greek
The APC youths said even though the Covid-19 pandemic is beyond
partisanship, Senator Olujimi cannot be said to have in good
conscience, taken food items to APC secretariats in Ekiti South
without first distributing relief package to members of her own party,
PDP. Or does she now love members of our party more than her own party
According to a press release issued by the youths today, and jointly
signed by Mr. Tope Ogunkuade and Comrade Tunji Adeleye, EAYC Convener
and Secretary respectively, some leaders of the APC in the state,
especially Governor Kayode Fayemi, will one day explain to the party
members, especially those in Ekiti South how they traded Prince
Adeyeye’s mandate, sold it to Senator Olujimi and are now celebrating
peanuts from her as relief package.
They said it is an insult for someone who used her manipulative ways
to snatch the Ekiti South Senatorial seat from the party’s original
winner, Prince Adedayo Adeyeye, to now turn around and be dropping
food items at our party secretariats for distribution to our members.
The youths urged loyal members of the APC in Ekiti South to reject the
food items brought to the party secretariats across the six local
governments, noting that Prince Adeyeye would have gone beyond the
miserable food items Senator Olujimi brought as Covid-19 relief
package if he was still in the Senate.
The EAYC, which described the two APC House of Representatives members
in the Ekiti South senatorial district, Hon Yemi Aderamodu and Hon
Femi Bamisile as capable of assisting party members in the district,
noted that Senator Olujimi will not be allowed to undermine them as
she undermined and torpedo Prince Adeyeye.
They said Olujimi should rather declare openly for the APC and see
whether we will accept her, instead of hobnobbing with the party
leaders in the State in the night and claiming PDP member in the
Describing APC as a party of disciplined members, the EAYC, which
insisted that the food items must be returned, said collecting food items from Senator Olujimi will amount to spiting Prince Adeyeye.
