Ekiti APC says Fayose a threat to national security

By Sunday Aloba, Ado-Ekiti


The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described Governor Ayodele Fayose as a threat to the security and orderly society.


Making the accusation in a statement by Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, over the governor’s attack on Chief Femi Falana (SAN) over his (Falana’s) position over the alleged election fraud that returned Fayose to power, the party said Falana could not have maintained his former position after revelations emerged that Fayose allegedly stole his way to power.


Olatunbosun said Fayose should shut up and stop insulting Nigerians in his shameless defence of criminal acts that brought him to power.


Accusing the governor of using immunity to commit impunity, the party said Fayose was carrying a moral and legal burden in the election that brought him to power, arguing that in a sane society, the governor would have resigned.


Arguing that Falana supported the governor’s election based on information available at the time, Olatunbosun explained that the revelations contained in Ekitigate audio tape and revelations contained in the testimony of the PDP State Secretary, Dr Tope Aluko, were mind-boggling and potent enough for the senior lawyer to change his position.


Expressing surprise that Fayose was still talking of Falana and American support for the election that has become a butt of jokes locally and internationally, Olatunbosun berated the governor for casting aspersion on Falana’s integrity, saying the senior lawyer is a pride of Ekiti people because of his integrity, scholarship and his fight for the cause of justice.


Accusing Fayose of engaging in siege mentality and attacks on his opponents to divert attention from the election fraud saga that brought him to power, Olatunbosun said:

“Fayose is jittery and that is why he is stoking violence. He has started attacking individuals in Ekiti State like he did during his first aborted tenure in 2006.


“We want to remind Fayose that many of his party leaders, who still have a modicum of integrity, have also left PDP in droves because they could not stand the shame he has brought upon them through the Ekitigate scandal planned and executed by him and  some of his cohorts. Therefore, Falana cannot be an exception.


“Fayose is being haunted by his criminal past and there is no way he will not meet his comeuppance no matter how he tries to evade justice.
