- Governor Fayose mocked the APC’s 77-member national campaign council
- The governor regarded the council as the biblical army of the Philistines
- He said the party will be roundly defeated in the state governorship election
The Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) after the party set up a 77-man committee ahead of the state’s governorship election.
Channel TV reports that Governor Fayose on Thursday, May 24, declared that the party will be roundly defeated despite their “army of occupation.”
He further criticized the APC for setting up a committee for the state’s election, rather than paying attention to the nation’s economic recovery, herdsmen killings and hunger.
According to him, “I saw APC’s gathering of 77 for Ekiti election, which I regard as the Biblical Army of the Philistines that will always crumble against the Israelites.
“APC didn’t set up 77-man committee on economic recovery, herdsmen killings & hunger, it is Ekiti that is more important to them.

“Unfortunately for the APC, their army of occupation is facing a Peter The Rock, they will be roundly defeated and the more they gather, the sweeter their defeat.”
He also said that despite earmarking over N25 billion for the coming elections, the Party’s defeat is certain.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that minister of solid mineral development, Kayode Fayemi, declared that the Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, and his jokes will soon end in jail.
Fayemi responded to the issues raised against him by Fayose saying that the governor is cooking up a white paper that he can shop around with a view to getting him banned from public office.
He said: ''I am always unequivocal in my view about him as a misfit and a rabble-rouser who has not learnt anything from his previous travails after being thrown out of office in 2006.''
