The All Progressives Congress(APC) in Ekiti State has advised a former governor of the state, Mr Ayodele Fayose, to perish the thought of defecting to the party
The State Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Ade Ajayi, in a statement in Ado Ekiti, said the party was not a dumping ground “for failed politicians,” adding that Fayose was not wanted in the party because of his antecedents.
The party was reacting to a statement allegedly credited to Fayose on Thursday, where the former governor waa quoted to have said he would defect to the APC if his anointed Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) state chairmanship aspirant failed to clinch the job.
But Ajayi described the party as “a disciplined, refined and integrity-inclined type which would not tolerate people like Fayose,” noting that “Fayose is not qualified to be a member of the APC in the state.”
He continued: “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.”
