You are not wanted in our party, APC tells Fayose

05 December 2016, 11:27

Ekiti - The Ekiti State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked Governor Ayodele Fayose to forget any hope of joining the party  after dumping the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), saying  the governor is not wanted in the ruling party, Leadership reports.

APC's Publicity Secretary in the state, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said in a statement on Sunday that APC could not be in the contemplation of the governor if indeed he wanted to move to another party.

Olatunbosun said Fayose was day-dreaming if he ever nursed any hope of seeking refuge in APC that controls the federal government “because he cannot survive in an opposition party”.

His words: “Fayose is always seeking to be relevant in party politics, with his party dominating at the centre to enable him get away with his many cases of illegality and lawless conducts.

“Fayose has been jittery and confused since the PDP lost Ondo State to the ruling APC against all odds and calculations, and as a political gambler who has traversed many parties since 2003 till present, starting from the PDP to APGA, Labour party, romanced briefly with ACN and PPA before moving back to the PDP even as he romanced AD in the last week governorship election, he is at his wits again to save his skin.

“Sensing that PDP is in the throes of death, he is contemplating dumping the party for APC, but there is no place for him in APC as he is only looking for an escape route from prosecution for his various infractions on the law since his first aborted  tenure as governor” .

The APC spokesman added: that Fayose was a blight to any political association he finds himself.

Governor Ayodele Fayose last week according to News24 hinted of his plans to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in next governorship election in the state

Fayose spoke against the backdrop of the party's defeat in Saturday's governorship election in Ondo State.
