Ekiti guber: Fayose slams APC

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose on Wednesday came under physical attack at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign rally for the October 10 Ondo State governorship election.

Fayose, who is the immediate past governor of Ekiti State was making his way to the podium when a hoodlums moved towards him and removed his cap.

Reacting to the incident in a statement signed by his Media aide, Lere Olayinka, Fayose alleged that the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde and former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, Chief Bode George were behind the attack on him.

He, however, not that the shameful act notwithstanding, he won’t stop saying the truth concerning the running of the party in the Southwest zone and those who have failed to produce any result in Lagos State since 1999 will be made to retire.

Noting that the same way he was assaulted was “how late Chief Bola Ige’s cap was removed in Ile Ife, Osun State then and we all know what happened later,” Fayose said he would make a formal report of the incidence to the security agencies and the Party’s relevant authorities, pointing out that it was not something to be handled with levity as security agencies will have to unravel all the thugs brought to the event and their sponsors.

He said: “So this one will not be ignored and treated as one of those things.

“The masterminds had it all planned and they followed it up by celebrating what they saw as the success of their plot. They even capped it up by circulating the video.

“So it was not an accident, it was planned. But those who planned it only succeeded in advertising their political myopism because popularity of the brand Ayo Fayose, Osokomole cannot be rubbished by such childish act. That they must have seen in the reaction of the people at the rally and I am sure they know that they can’t get such loud ovation even if they spend all the money in this world.

“As for me, I am unperturbed and I must say it clearly that those new comers to the PDP and their old allies, who won’t mind soiling the image of the party to achieve their aims will not be allowed to succeed.”
