Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has denied insinuations that he has already concluded plans to pitch tent with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), should his anointed candidate for the Party’s chairmanship position, Hon Bisi Kolawole, loses at the forthcoming State Congresses in Ekiti State.
Reacting to the rumour, the Media Aide to the former governor, Lere Olayinka, said “it is funny that the APC in Ekiti State lied and went further to react to its own lies.”
He said; “as I write, Fayose is presently in a meeting of major stakeholders of the PDP in Ekiti State in the house of Senator Clement Awoyelu.”
He admonished the APC in the State to focus its attention on its non-performing government, describing the report as figment of the imagination of those peddling it.
“The story of Fayose’s threat to leave PDP for the APC is one of the lies from the APC factory of lies and it is even more childish that the party in Ekiti State went ahead to react to its own lies,” he said.
According to the media aide, APC as a party has nothing to attract any right thinking politician, saying “is it the killings and kidnappings going on across the country? Is it the pariah State that Nigeria has become such that USA had to place the country on visa restrictions? Is it the huge debt the country has been plunged into? Or is it the directionless state of the country?
“Is it the sacking of over 3,000 workers by the non-performing APC government in Ekiti State?
“Most importantly, is it the confused state of the APC, which has made even the State Chairman of the party in Ekiti State, Mr. Paul Omotoso, to join others in calling for the removal of the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole?
“What is there in the APC to attract someone like Fayose, who is known for his stand in support of the masses of Nigeria that are being made to suffer more hardship by the APC government?
“They can continue to hallucinate about everything Ayodele Fayose, while he continues with his task of to rebuild the PDP in Ekiti State with a view to returning to power in 2022,” he concluded.
