- Ayodele Fayose has debunked claims that he is eyeing membership of the APC in Ekiti
- The former Ekiti state governor, through his media aide, Lere Olayinka, said that such reports are lies from the ruling party
- Olayinka said that Fayose is rather busy with strategies on how to win the 2022 gubernatorial election in the state on the platform of the PDP
Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti, through his media aide, Lere Olayinka, has described as false the viral reports that he will be joining the All Progressives Congress (APC) soon.
In a statement exclusively made available to Legit.ng on Friday, February 21, Olayinka said that such claims are only the evil fabrications of his principal's detractors, adding that Fayose remains a stauch member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The remark of the media aide was a direct response to rumours that Fayose is threatening to defect from the PDP to the APC if his reportedly chosen candidate for the state chairmanship, Honourable Bisi Kolawole, loses out in the forthcoming congress.
However, Olayinka said that no right-thinking Nigerian politician can ever be attaracted to the ruling party, alleging that it has been responsible for all the woes happening in the country such as poverty, debts, visa ban from the United States (US), insecurity and unemployment.
He said: "...is it the killings and kidnappings going on across the country? Is it the pariah state that Nigeria has become such that USA had to place the country on visarestrictions?
"Is it the huge debt the country has been plunged into?Or is it the directionless state of the country?
Olayinka went ahead to say that the while the APC in Ekiti is allegedly day-dreaming about Fayose, his principal is busy working on how to build the PDP in the state and win the next governorship election in 2022.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reporetd that the video of Ayodele Fayose dancing salsa with a white woman on a cruising ship abroad recently surfaced on the internet resulting in various reactions.
One of those who have spoken about it was the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
