Ado Ekiti - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has criticised Governor Ayo Fayose over his incessant attacks on the person and office of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The party was reacting to Fayose’s allegation that President Buhari harbours an agenda to “islamise” Nigeria.
Fayose reportedly made the statement in Port Harcourt at a service to mark Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike’s Supreme Court victory.

The APC in a statement on Sunday by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, described Fayose’s latest attack on Buhari as “a disgraceful conduct intended to sway public sympathy in his favour”.
The party said the President has been fair to adherents of other religions
The party also regretted that the governor’s public conduct has made Ekiti people a laughing stock among decent people of the world.
The statement reads: We know Fayose as a devious schemer in the game of subterfuge with uncanny capacity to stoke public rage against his innocent opponents.
“He is deliberately engaging the President relentlessly in his uncouth outbursts so that when the Nigerian law is being applied to take care of his many crimes against the state, he can then start his propaganda that he is being haunted for criticising the President.”
“If anyone is guilty of religious bigotry, it is Fayose who did not deem it fit to consider muslims for appointments in his administration whereas he gave Christians almost 98 per cent of the appointments into the State Executive Council, parastatals and boards,
We have always raised the alarm that Fayose is dangerous and a threat to the law.
“We advise Nigerians to see him as a rabble rouser bent on sabotaging our unity for his private comfort.”
