Yesterday, the governor-elect of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose stated that the APC should prepare to leave the states it is currently in control of because the Peoples Democratic Party will in 2015 defeat the main opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, in the South-West
Fayose, who spoke before thousands of party chieftains and
followers at Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park, Ojota, Lagos, in a rally
put in place to welcome him to the state and in continuation of his
Southwest Tour tagged “Thank You,”declared that nothing will
stop President Goodluck Jonathan from being re-elected next
year, adding that just as he beat the incumbent Governor Kayode
Fayemi of the APC with a landslide victory, so will his party, take-
over Osun State in August 9 guber polls.
Party chieftains present at the rally were the Minister of State for
Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro; Chairman, Lagos State chapter of the
PDP, Group Captain Olatunji Shelle (rtd); Prince Buruji Kashamu;
PDP interim zonal chairman, Chief Ishola Filani; PDP Lagos
Gubernatorial candidate in 2011, Dr. Ade Dosunmu; Chief
Gbadamosi Babatunde; former Lagos State Commissioner for
Health, Dr. Segun Ogundimu among others.
Fayose said: “Before I recognise my leaders, I want to give the
APC an assignment after leaving this place. After leaving this
place, their leaders, their followers, should come and sweep the
whole of Freedom Park for me.
The conspiracy against me in 2006 is now their albatross. It is the
problem they are facing now and that is what is going to take all of
them out of government house, one after the other.”
Lauding the Lagos PDP members and leadership under Captain
Olatunji Shelle and Chief Olabode George for their commitment, he
said: “I am here to thank and appreciate you, the good people of
Lagos State, the common people of Lagos State, people who are
not even party members, I salute you.
The era of imposition either by the APC, PDP or any other political
party is gone. If you want to continue with politics, god-fatherism
will take you elsewhere and not to government house.”
