Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayo Fayose, has advised the presidential candidate of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress ( APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, to take the outcome of the forthcoming presidential election in good faith.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti on Monday, Fayose said that on March 28, the APC would realise that elections are not won on pages of newspapers and through sheer propaganda.
Fayose said he was offering the advise so that the party does not incite people to violence adding that APC had always believed that any election it did not win was rigged.
He said, “The reason APC will fail woefully is because people have come to know it as a party which a predominantly peopled by a set of liars, deceits and hypocrites who should not be entrusted with the leadership of this country.
”Even leaders of thought in the North have since withdrawn their support when they realised the agenda of certain APC leaders against the North.
”I can say it categorically that Buhari will be beaten silly and I am advising Buhari and his APC to take the impending defeat philosophically as an act of God.
”May be after this election, the party will change its name from APC to Panadol.”
Speaking further, Fayose said the APC represented bad luck for
He described some opinion polls results published over the weekend as orchestrated and unrealistic.
He said:It is self deceit taken too far for anyone to list Ekiti as part of States to be won by the APC in the Saturday’s presidential election.”
“Fake opinion polls won’t assist the APC, the way it did not assist the party in the June 21, 2014 Ekiti governorship election.”
