The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has advised a former governor of the state; Ayodele Fayose; to perish the thought of defecting to the APC.
Ade Ajayi, the State Publicity Secretary of the party, made this declaration regarding Fayose on Thursday, February 20.
He said the party was not a dumping ground “for failed politicians;” adding that Fayose was not wanted at the party because of his antecedents.
Ajayi described the APC as “a disciplined, refined and integrity-inclined type which would not tolerate people like Fayose,”; adding that “he is not qualified to be a member of the APC in the state.”
The party, which was reacting to a statement allegedly credited to the former governor to the effect that he would defect to the APC if his ordained Peoples Democratic Party state chairmanship aspirant failed in his bid for the job.
To this, 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.”
