Former Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, has denied the rumour making the rounds of his plan to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Media aide to the former governor, Lere Olayinka, who described the APC as a “coronavirus” infected party, said that it was not a party that someone of the status and pedigree of Fayose would ever join.
Olayinka, who was reacting to a statement credited to the APC in Ekiti state that Fayose was not qualified to join the party 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.”
The ex-governor’s aide admonished the APC in the state to focus its attention on its non-performing government, described the report of Fayose’s threat to join APC should his adopted candidate for the state chairmanship of the PDP, Hon Bisi Kolawole, fail in the forthcoming state congress 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 went ahead to react to its own lies,” he said.
