A youth group in the Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), under the aegis of Ekiti APC Youth Congress (EAYC) has accused the state governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi of high-handedness and nepotism.

The group in a statement on Thursday by Tope Ogunkuade and Tunji Adeleye, EAYC Convener and Secretary respectively, said the action of the governor might spell doom for the party in the 2022 governorship election.

They also expressed shock that despite Fayemi’s closeness to President Muhammadu Buhari, Ekiti has no single nominee among the 41 new ambassadorial lists.

 “States like Oyo, Kwara and Kano has three; others like Adamawa, Borno and Benue has two,” the group noted.

They recalled that in May, Buhari appointed 42 career ambassadors without an Ekiti indigene.

EAYC dismissed the argument that Ekiti was omitted because it has Mrs Eniola Ajayi as Nigerian envoy in Hungary, pointing out that a state like Bauchi has a serving ambassador, but still got one slot.

“The question is: What special benefit has Fayemi’s claimed closeness to the Presidency brought to Ekiti? Even Oyo State where no one claims to be President Buhari’s closest ally has three nominees.
