Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has explained why states governed by the  All Progressives Congress (APC) will participate in the forthcoming National Conference, saying it’s in order to fulfill the expectations of  the people.
Fayemi who gave the indication in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday said  the decision of the governments of the All Progressives Congress-controlled states to participate in the national conference does not in any way constitute a defiance of some of the APC leaders’ decision to boycott the conference.
He said the APC controlled states would participate in the conference bearing in mind the fact that government was not for a particular party or section of the public but for the generality of the people.
Fayemi said: “There is no sudden change of mind. The national conference in its constitution has slot for political parties as well as states.
“APC is well within its right as a party to decide on what its position is as far as the national conference is concerned. But APC also has states being governed by its members bearing in mind the fact that governors are governors of all. Without prejudice to the position that our party has taken, we preside over both members as well as non-members of our parties and it would be wrong for us to decide unilaterally as governors not to allow our citizens to air their views as far as the national conference is concerned”.
