The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has been toldto perish the thought of defecting to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
In a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of the APC in Ekiti State, Ade Ajayi, on Thursday, February 20, the party said it was not a dumping ground “for failed politicians,” insisting that Fayose was not wanted in the APC because of his antecedents.
The Ekiti State APC was reacting to a statement allegedly credited to the former governor that he would dump the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the event that his anointed candidate for state party chairmanship failed to clinch the position.
Describing the APC as “a disciplined, refined and integrity-inclined type which would not tolerate people like Fayose,” Ajayi declared that “Fayose is not qualified to be a member of the APC in the state.”
Ajayi said, “We will not welcome him to the great and decent family in the state.
“It is better he stays back in his PDP to get it more destroyed, instead of coming to a principled, disciplined, transparent, law-abiding and organised party like the APC.
“The Ekiti APC members know the people behind the masquerade and thereby warn people like Fayose not to turn the APC to a dumping ground where they can defect to.”
