The Oyo state chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has bitterly warned Mr Ayo Fayose following comments by the governor-elect of Ekiti
State, that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, would clinch victory in Oyo State as it did in Ekiti, the All Progressives Congress party has warned him to stay away from the state.
The warning was handed down by the party’s state Chairman,
Chief Akin Oke yesterday. He said unlike Ekiti, the Oyo State people were too sophisticated to be bought by the PDP.
He said; “The people of Oyo State are too sophisticated for the
pedestrian politics being played by Fayose.”
“We warn the governor-elect to concentrate his energy on his Ekiti
people as Oyo would be too hot for his kind of politics.
“We have watched Fayose’s flippancy getting worse by the day
since his alleged victory in Ekiti. We do not have any qualms with
his riding on a roller coaster of this supposed victory and talking
down on everybody while telling them that he is the newest thing
to happen in South West politics. We only warn him that that brand
of murky politics which saw him grandstanding and riding
roughshod over everybody will not work in Oyo State”.
“We are a people who do not allow foreign Generals to lord it over
The APC condemned what it called “Fayose’s sudden and
uncontrolled attack on everyone, including leaders of the Yoruba
people”, noting that he(Fayose) should learn a lesson in keeping
his mouth shut so that he does not incur the wrath of the ancestors
of the Yoruba people.”
“The ancestors of Yoruba people warn that a farmer who just had
his barn running over with a bountiful harvest must be humble
enough to be sober in plenty. Doom awaits such a farmer in the
long run. This warning is what Fayose is not heeding as he is
running his trap against everybody,” said the APC.
The APC said that its party-led government was beyond reproach
as it had acquitted itself in the eyes of the people in the
dispensation of the dividends of democracy.
The Oyo State APC Chairman also wondered why the PDP rally
was held in a small corner of the capital of Ibadan with alleged
rented crowd asking why the PDP could not muster enough people
to fill a standard venue befitting of the state chapter of the much
touted largest party in Africa in one of the most populous cities in
“It was glaring that the PDP in Oyo State lacked any credible
leader or candidate who could put his legs into the shoes of the
party-led government and had thus resorted to the engagement of
mercenaries and the recycling of spent forces in the dream to win
elections in the State.
“The people of Oyo know that the APC government is an
administration that has changed the dwindling fortune of the state
from what the PDP, in eight years, lorded over it. The violence,
decay and shame that the PDP foisted on our people for eight
years have been written off and our people are witnessing an
infrastructural revolution that is unparalleled. Our people will
compare our government with the PDP government and make their
choice,” said the APC.
