Isaac-Kekemeke-620x400 (1)

keke9The embattled Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Mr. Isaac Kekemeke has again refused to show up before the three man fact finding committee set up to look into his activities.

Kekemeke was suspended by some members of the state executive committee over an alleged financial misappropriation and high handedness.

The embattled Chairman was also accused of negligence and abandoning the party.

The committee had earlier invited the embattled Chairman to appear before it last Tuesday, which he failed to honor.

After hours of waiting for Kekemeke on Tuesday, the Secretary of the committee, Saka Yusuf Ogunleye said the committee will go ahead and write its report based on the evidences presented by six members of the state working committee and the party administrative officer.

Members of the state working committee including Woman leader, Mrs Lara Atiba, Youth leader, Comrade Olutayo Babalayo, Organising Secretary, Mr Rapheal Adetimehin, Financial Secretary, Deacon Moshood Ishola, State Secretary, Mr. Rotimi Rahman and Smart Omodunbi, the party administrative officer; gave evidences against Kekemeke.

While the Organizing Secretary alleged that the embattled Chairman used his personal aides in running party activities and events, the financial secretary said the chairman always give him cheque to sign without recourse to the state working committee’s approval.

Yusuf Ogunleye said the committee invited Kekemeke again so as to give him fair hearing by allowing him to State his own side of the story.

He said since the embattled chairman had refused to honor the invitation for the second time, the committee will write its report with the evidences before it.

All phone calls made to contact Kekemeke proved abortive as he did not answer his calls as at the time of filling this report.

Meanwhile, one of his aides, who doesn’t want his name in print said Kekemeke will never appear before the committee.

He said the people of the state will see the legal battle that will trail the matter as it unfolds.
