The All Progressives Congress (APC) Elders Assembly has said Hon. D. I Kekemeke be left alone to complete his tenure as the party chairman in Ondo State.
The decision was unanimously taken during a meeting held on Friday at the residence of Senator Olorunnibe Farunkanmi at iju, in Akure North Local Government Area of the state.
The meeting was chaired by the Deputy National Chairman of the party, Chief Pius Akinyelure, and was attended by all the elders of the party across South-west.
According to Akinyelure,” The national Secretariat of the party is much aware of the crisis in Ondo State and hereby suspends the committee set- up to probe Kekemeke until the National Secretariat is through with her findings over the issue in due course”.
However, the assembly unanimously agreed and resolved in strong terms that kekemeke be left alone to finish his tenure as chairman and find means by which the crisis will be resolved since the situation is becoming alarming.
Farounkanmi said total reconciliation is needed to wrestle the party from disunity and national embarrassment.
“We must strive to ensure and facilitate a process of re-organising, re-branding and re-positioning our party from total collapse so as face the emerging challenge.
Other dignitaries at the meeting included Alhaji Ali Olanusi (fmr Deputy Gov.), Chief Sola Iji (Ambassador designate), Pa L.I Rogitan, Chief Jide Awe, Chief Ayegbusi, Chief Ologunboro, Mrs. Grace Animola and host of others.
