Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has dismissed the on-going effort to perpetually supplant factional governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state as a calculated attempt to cause confusion in the PDP in order to get victory for the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Fayose who spoke on Orange FM in Akure, the Ondo State capital on Tuesday said the factional governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim, whose candidature is causing controversy in the state would never become the governor of Ondo State.
He described the factional PDP candidate as an agent of destabilisation who allegedly had a mission to cause confusion and distraction to the people of the state.
He said some agents of confusion were allegedly using the crisis in the PDP to cause confusion in the party so as to pave the way for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), to win the November 26, governorship election.
He said, “I want my people in Ondo State to stand by Jegede, they should not be distracted. I believe justice will prevail. This is a fight against democracy.
“I don’t know Jimoh Ibrahim, he is not a member of the PDP, and he is a spoiler. I don’t know how Jimoh Ibrahim will rule Ondo State. Justice will prevail for Jegede, there will definitely be light at the end of the tunnel. I know it is going to be praises for Jegede and the people of the state at the end of the day.”
