- The campaign organisation of the governorship candidate of the PDP Kolapo Olusola cautioned Rotimi Akeredolu against selling a failed ex-governor to Ekiti state
- The party urged Akeredolu, who is the governor of Ondo state, to face the governance of his state
- This is followed by his coming to Ado Ekiti to campaign for the candidate of the APC, Kayode Fayemi
Peoples Democratic Party of Ekiti state governorship candidate, Kolapo Olusola, has told Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state, to face governance in his state instead of wasting public fund on the APC governorship candidate Kayode Fayemi in the state.
Daily Sun reports that the Ekiti state deputy governor campaign group, Kolapo Olusola Campaign Organisation in a statement said governor Akeredolu went to market Fayemi as “a failure advertising another failure.
The statement read: “We wish to draw the attention of Nigerians to the involvement of the Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu in the plot by the APC to unleash terror on Ekiti and its people as part of the grand plot to forcefully take over the State, having realized that the party’s cannot regain power through the ballots.
“Last week Friday, governor Akeredolu mobilized over 150 armed policemen and several thugs from Akure, Ondo state to accompany the APC governorship candidate, Kayode Fayemi to Ado Ekiti, thereby throwing Ekiti state that has been peaceful since the advent of Governor Ayodele Fayose’s government into chaos.
“Instead of devoting his time and resources to the Ekiti election, which Fayemi; his stooge can never win, shouldn’t governor Akeredolu be concerned with at least, returning Ondo state to how he met it in 2017?
“Or does it gladden his heart that all the good things his government met in the State have been destroyed to the extent that pregnant women had to go on the streets to protest against the astronomical increase in the cost of delivery?
“More than 15 months as governor, Akeredolu cannot boast of a single achievement in Ondo State apart from commissioning billboards. Yet, his priority is sponsoring thugs to Ekiti with millions of naira.
“Workers are still being owed months of unpaid salaries, despite huge resources accruing to Ondo State from the federation account. For instance, workers at the State owned polytechnic, Rufus Giwa Polytechnic are being owed 10 months’ salary.
“Also, in Ondo state under Governor Akeredolu, the farm of elder statesman, Chief Olu Falae and several other indigenes of Ondo State were attacked by herdsmen, while he looked the other way.
“Therefore, governor Akeredolu coming to Ekiti to market Fayemi is like a failure advertising another failure, it won’t work!

“Let it be reiterated that Ekiti is not a state to be taken by force and annexed to Ondo State by anyone. We have never served a foreign god and we are not going to start now.
“The governor should be reminded that this is Ekiti of 2018, which is under a competent leader, Ayo Fayose, not that of 2010 when he used his position to influence the Appeal court judgment in favour of Fayemi.
“Therefore, it is our counsel that Governor Akeredolu should leave Ekiti people alone to choose their leader. He should face governance in Ondo state that has retrogressed since he assumed office.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state called for three days of fasting and prayer for the APC former governorship aspirant, Hon. Michael Opeyemi Bamidele (MOB) and others that were shot by unknown gunmen at the APC secretariat on Friday, June 1.
Fayose, who also directed the suspension of all open campaign activities of the PDP in the state for three days, demanded that those found culpable in the invasion of the state with illegal policemen that were involved in the shootings must be brought to book.
