The former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has said he has no intention of joining the All Progressive Congress, APC, describing the political party as a coronavirus infected party.
Fayose made this open while responding to a statement by the APC in Ekiti in which the party described the former governor as unqualified to join their party.
In a statement released by his Media aide, Lere Olayinka, Favose said that someone of his status and pedigree can never contemplate joining APC.
“It is funny that the APC in Ekiti State lied and went further to react to its own lies.”
He reiterated his loyalty to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP saying, “I’m presently in a meeting of major stakeholders of the PDP in Ekiti State in the house of Senator Clement Awoyelu.”
Speculations have been going around that Fayose had threatened to join the APC if the PDP fails to adopt his party candidate for the State Chairmanship position, Hon. Bisi Kolawole, something the ex-governor’s aide described as a figment of the imagination of those peddling it.
He added that the APC needed to focus on its none-performing government as there was nothing to attract any right-thinking politician to the party.
”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 than the party in Ekiti State went ahead to react to its own lies,” he said.
Speaking on the many lapses of the APC, Olayjnka asked,
”Is it the killings and kidnappings going on across the country? Is it the pariah State that Nigeria has become such that the 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?
”They can continue to hallucinate about everything Ayodele Fayose, while he continues with his task to rebuild the PDP in Ekiti State with a view to returning to power I’m 2022.” Olayinka quipped.
All this in the wake of a leaked memo to the National Assembly signed by Mr. Kyari who advised Legislators returning from oversea trips to submit themselves for Coronavirus tests.
So far, Nigeria has recorded 36 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus and 1 death in Abuja of Suleiman Achimugu, a former Managing Director of Pipelines and Products Marketing subsidiary of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.
