Ayodele Fayose is not worried about Dayo Adeyeye’s move to he All Progressives Congress (APC).
Adeyeye, a former Minister of State for Works, recently decamped to APC after his dream to become Ekiti governor came to an end after loosing the PDP gubernatorial primary to Governor Fayose’s candidate, Olusola Eleka. “His (Adeyeye) move to APC will not in any way affect us. This is because majority of those he thought were behind him did not defect with him,” Fayose said in a statement released by his Special Assistant on Public Communication and New Media, Lere Olayinka.
Ekiti PDP Guber candidate, Eleka will face APC’s Kayode Fayemi, ADP’s Segun Adewale and a host of other ambitious politicians to become Ekiti next governor in the July 14 election in the state. Fayose’s statement on Adeyeye’s move, which was issued in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday (May 29) also reads: “In fact, one of his two party agents for the last primary is still with us in PDP and you know what that means. If somebody is your party agent and could not go with you to another party it tells a lot and even as he is moving from PDP, many others from APC are coming to us, so we have nothing to lose with his defection.” Adeyeye’s new role at the APC camp is yet to be revealed, but Fayose has more to say, noting that, “While he (Adeyeye) was the PDP national spokesman, he had spoken terrible things against the APC and he has now gone to join the same party.”
