Abuja - Youths aligned to the All Progressives Congress (APC) have accused Senator Babafemi Ojudu, representing Ekiti Central senatorial district, of fueling the crisis in the state by planning the impeachment of Governor Ayodele Fayose.
The youth, under the aegis of Ekiti APC Youths Congress (EAYC), alleged Ojudu recruited people from Lagos to speak in his defence in his roles in the current impeachment move against governor Fayose.
"If the ultimate beneficiary of Fayose's impeachment will be someone like Senator Babafemi Ojudu, we the youths in the APC will wash our hands off it," read a statement signed by Convener and Secretary, Tope
Ogunkuade, and Tunji Adeleye, respectively.
Some APC politicians are behind the move to impeach Fayose for alleged human rights violations while it is claimed his election last June was characterised by irregularities.

The pair claimed Ojudu had not assisted any youth in the APC.
"Even his father's house in Ado-Ekiti, he left it in dilapidated form. Apart from fighting against governors in the State and pulling their governments down, Ojudu cannot point to one single benefit that he has brought to Ekiti before and now that he is a senator.
"We even wonder why he (Ojudu) is not ashamed that he had to recruit faceless civil rights groups from Lagos to defend him, instead of youths in Ekiti State rising up to defend him," the statement read.
The youths also reiterated their warning to Ojudu to stop leading the rebellion against former Governor Kayode Fayemi.
"Fayemi is the only leader of the APC in Ekiti State that we know. Ojudu and his Action Group can go and form their own party if they want a party which will be controlled by someone like Ojudu that cannot win
election even in his own father¹s house," the youths added.
