An All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain in Ekiti state, Gbenga Aluko has alleged that Governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose, is planning to leave the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP.
Aluko also revealed that Fayose has been holding secret talks with APC leaders.
“In APC, there is no move that you make that a leader like me won’t know. Fayose knew that he can’t win the forthcoming election and we are following every of his moves and attempt to join.
“Fayose has always been riding on presidential power to win election in Ekiti. In 2003, he won election in Ekiti because of President Olusegun Obasanjo’s desperation to make inroad into the South-West.
“The same scenario played out in 2014, when the former President Goodluck Jonathan wanted to use Ekiti and Osun to make inroad to the South-West for 2015 presidential election.
“The revelations of Fayose’s close ally, Tope Aluko, and that of Captain Sagir Koli corroborated the fact that the election was massively rigged. Fayose had never won any free and fair election in Ekiti.
“In 2011, when election was free and fair, he lost senatorial election in the Central district to Senator Babafemi Ojudu of the APC.
“So, the 2018 election will prove him wrong that he is only overrating his popularity, because he can’t win without the federal might,” he said.
