Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has called on Dr. Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress not to rejoice yet over his victory at the APC primary, saying that will be the closest he will get in the Ekiti gubernatorial race.
Tweeting @GovAyoFayose, the governor wrote: “I thank the APC for giving Ekiti people a candidate they love to vote against at all times. Fayemi should not celebrate this pyrrhic victory yet because it is nothing but a flame that will be quenched on July 14.”
Also, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Idowu Adelusi, in a statement made available to one of our correspondents, boasted that Fayemi would be roundly defeated again.
He said, “In 2014 when he was the sitting governor and I was not in power, I trounced him mercilessly. I gave him 16 – 0, defeating him in all the local governments, including in his home town. He did not win a single local government.
“Now, I have been in power for more than three years and have served the people of Ekiti well. My legacy projects are there to speak for me, and for my party – the Peoples Democratic Party – as well as for our candidate in the July 14 governorship election, Prof. Kolapo Olusola.
“Fayemi will suffer the worst defeat of his political career. After the July 14 election, he will go into political oblivion.
“He has nothing to celebrate because of the electoral disaster awaiting him. The manner of his so-called victory also leaves much to be desired as it has turned many of their party leaders and followers against him,” he submitted.
