The letter read: “We the executive members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ifaki Ekiti hereby request your presence at the Ilero Town Hall, Ilogbe, Ifaki Ekiti, to clear some allegations against your person by some members of the APC Ward II, Ifaki Ekiti.

“Kindly indicate by informing the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ward II, Ifaki Ekiti the convenient time and date to meet the executive members within the next seven (7) days of the receipt of this letter.

“Please treat as very urgent.”

The state APC Publicity Secretary, Chief Ade Ajayi, confirmed the disciplinary action being taken by party leaders in Ifaki against Oni.

Ajayi, a former House of Assembly member, said the party’s constitution provides for disciplinary action against any erring member.

He said: “The party is bigger than any individual and the party constitution stipulates disciplinary action against any member found to have contravened party rules and regulations.

“The party constitution provides that any disciplinary action against any member should start from his ward where such an individual will be given an opportunity to defend himself.”

Fayemi had within hours of winning the governorship primary last year, visited Oni and other fellow contestants as a gesture of reconciliation and request to work together.
