EKITI State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has declared that he wouldnot join the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, but said he remains committed to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP. Governor Fayose, made these remarks yesterday at the palace of the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe after being conferred with the honour of an ‘Outstanding Achiever of Our Time’ by Ado Progressive Union, APU, saying he will never dump the PDP for APC. “I will never dump PDP for APC. I remain strong and unshaken for the PDP. I can’t jump the boat, even if I want to jump, I won’t jump into the red sea.
“Why should I leave the PDP and join a party of hunger like APC? Ekiti is different from Ondo. By the grace of God, there will be a repeat of history here in 2018; I shall repeat the 16-0 that I gave them in 2014. “I operate like the biblical Elisha because those with us are greater than theirs. The God of Israel that conquered Philistines shall be on our side” The Governor assured the people of Ado Ekiti that more developmental projects shall be instituted by his government for him to remain indelible in the history of Ekiti State. “Chief Obafemi Awolowo died 29 years ago, but his work live on. I want people in ten, twenty, fifty years to think of one Ayo Fayose that governed Ekiti and opened up
Ado Ekiti, built a new Oja Oba Market, the flyover, dualisation of many road among other landmark projects. “I have raised the bar of development in Ado Ekiti, I have raised the respect for Ewi and no governor can come to Ekiti and undermine this town and the throne. “I shall do more to promote this palace to the extent that our opponents will have no space within this palace to construct any structure”, Fayose said. But, in a statement released at Ado-Ekiti, yesterday by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, said Fayose lambasted those distorting his statements and peddling the unfounded rumour as mischief-makers and agents of dark and evil forces, which will never have the upper
hand in Ekiti. “What I said is that if the current man-made crisis rocking the PDP persists till 2018, rather than allow them mess us up like they did in Ondo, we may have to seek an alternative and credible platform. We are not people who betray the confidence of our people. If there will be change at all, it will not be spur-of-the-moment. We shall carry our leaders and the people along”, he added. All men and women of goodwill, backed up by God, he said, will, in the fullness of time, roll back and roll away those oppressive, repressive, and satanic forces; their sinister motives and anti-people agenda will be quashed in Nigeria.
