Fayose is a pathological liar, fanatic – APC

20 October 2016, 18:01

Ado Ekiti - The Ekiti State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Thursday described the State Governor, Ayodele Fayose as a “fanatic” and “pathological liar.”

The party was reacting to revelations by a former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro of  how several billions of naira were transferred from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) to Fayose  in the build-up to the 2014 governorship election in Ekiti State.

Obanikoro, who is currently in custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had disclosed that he personally handed over the monies to Fayose.

The party said the latest revelations from Obanikoro, has vindicated its claim that Fayose rigged the June 21, 2014 governorship election in the state, using state apparatus and funding from the then Federal Government.

The party’s remark was contained in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

According to the statement, “We have always insisted that Fayose is a fantastic and a pathological liar whose integrity is in question as declared by an Ekiti State High Court judge in his suit against Femi Falana in a defamation case against the lawyer.

“We said it that Fayose was mobilised by the Federal Government with funds, military and INEC to win his election.

“Captain Sagir Koli’s tape said it all in an audio recording where Fayose himself said he collected INEC soft copies he printed to win his election before PDP State Secretary, Tope Aluko, told Nigerians through documents how the process was compromised to give victory to Fayose,” he said.

“It is baffling that Fayose that had been grandstanding that he did not collect money from the Federal Government now has no answer to Obanikoro’s confession other than lying that the former minister was compromised to give his confession to nail him.

“Fayose as a man obsessed with the life of fraud never believes that anything can be done without committing fraud, that is why he believes that Obanikoro was compromised to give evidence in a matter that was comprehensively documented and that cannot be denied by anybody in this world except Fayose who believes that lies and fraud can do anything for him.”

"With Obanikoro’s revelation, Fayose should prepare to face the law.

“It is now clear why Fayose made himself the spokesman of the opposition criticising every action of the Federal Government and getting himself involved in seditious and treasonable activities to bring President Muhammadu’s administration down.

“But the game is up. The long arms of the law will eventually catch up with Fayose because whatever a man sows, he shall reap.

“We agree with Fayose that Buhari should fight hunger, but we also agree that the President should fight those who cause hunger by looting the nation’s treasury of which Fayose is a major beneficiary as can be seen in his various acts of corruption and so he should get prepared to face the law because the law is above everybody,”
