The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has warned the former governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose, against joining them from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
News Nigeria recalls that Fayose had allegedly stated that he would defect to the APC if his ordained PDP state chairmanship aspirant failed in his bid for the job.
Reacting in a statement on Thursday, the Ekiti State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Ade Ajayi, advised Fayose to perish any thought of joining the ruling party.
He stated that the chieftain of the PDP was not wanted in the APC because of his antecedents.
The party spokesperson said the APC was “a disciplined, refined and integrity-inclined type which would not tolerate people like Fayose.”
Ajayi stated that the Ekiti former governor lacked the qualification to be a member of the ruling APC.
He said: “We will not welcome him to the great and decent family in the state.
“It is better he stays back in his PDP to get it more destroyed instead of coming to a principled, disciplined, transparent, law-abiding and organised party like the APC.
“The Ekiti APC members know the people behind the masquerade and thereby warn people like Fayose not to turn the APC to a dumping ground where they can defect to.”
