The All Progressives Congress has taken a swipe at the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Enoch Adeboye after the latter rained praises on the controversial Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.

Pastor Adeboye who spoke in Ado-Ekiti ahead of his crusade described the Governor’s courage and willingness to defend his people and the cause of the common man in his State as worthy of emulation by other Governors.

APC in Ekiti state, apparently not happy with the well-respected cleric supporting a Governor deemed as controversial by many said it was shocked that Adeboye would praise Fayose even with his persistent insults and abuses on President Muhammadu Buhari.

APC noted further that the cleric should be seen as speaking for himself and his comment must not be seen as representing that of the entire members of the RCCG.

In a release issued in Ado Ekiti on Sunday and signed by the state chairman of the party, Jide Awe, the party alleged that Fayose could have bribed Adeboye with huge amount of money to get such endorsement, which is now being circulated.

Awe described Governor Fayose as a man who can bribe even an angel of God to endorse the devil, warning the cleric to avoid what will make the people of Ekiti rise against him.
