MEMBERS of the Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have lashed out at former governor Ayo Fayose saying that he will not be welcome to join their ranks if he decides to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Governor Fayose, who finished his second term governing Ekiti State last year, during which he was a bog thorn in the side of the ruling APC, remains the PDP’s most prominent figure in the state. At the moment, the Ekiti State chapter of the PDP is looking to elect new officials and apparently, Governor Fayose has said he may quit the party of his favoured candidate does not get elected as chairman.
However, Ade Ajayi, the publicity secretary of the Ekiti State chapter of the APC, said the party was not a dumping ground for failed politicians, adding that Governor Fayose was not wanted because of his antecedents. He described the APC as a disciplined, refined and integrity-inclined party which would not tolerate people like Fayose.
Mr Ajayi said: “Fayose is not qualified to be a member of the APC in the state and we will not welcome him to the great and decent family. 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.”
