The All Progressives Congress, (APC) in Ekiti has cautioned Governor Ayo Fayose to mind his business and declared that the governorâs meddlesomeness was a sign that he has become frustrated and jittery.
The party reacted Wednesday night to claims by Fayose that some of its aspirants planned to monetise Saturdayâs gubernatorial primary.
The party described Fayoseâs claim as meddlesomeness, and described it as figment of his imagination.
The State Publicity Secretary of APC, Chief Taiwo Olatunbosun , said what the governor had just displayed by raising âfalse alarmâ was a sign that he was afraid of an impending loss by his party of the July gubernatorial election.
â Fayose is frustrated and jittery, let him mind his business. He is not a member of our party so I donât know where he is picking his information from
â APC is not like his own party, the Peopleâs Democratic Party that has stolen our commonwealth and plunged the nation into a state of coma
âYes, we will mobilise our members for the primary but the allegation that we are sharing that kind of money by the governor is laughable
â We will do everything that is right and within the constitution to send him out of the Government House, so let him start packing
âNo amount of blackmail will stop or derail us. The Ekiti people are set for the APC and we will make sure we produce a candidate that is acceptable to the people.âhe said.
The governor had raised the alarm over alleged movement of heavy cash into the state by some unidentified aspirants of the APC.
The governor said, while addressing newsmen at the Government House, Ado Ekiti that such monies were meant to compromise the delegates.
He hinged his concern on the fact that the governorship election slated for July 14 in the state might also be compromised by the use of cash, going by the alleged desperation of the aspirants who are jostling for the ticket of the APC.
According to him, the way the exercise was being compromised in the build up to ordinary primary, showed that the APC was merely paying lip service to the war against corruption.
The Governor wondered where the money being spent by the affected aspirants were coming from, saying that a particular aspirant allegedly gave each delegate N250,000, and another gave N500,000, with a promise to offer them N1million each on Saturday , tthe day of the party primary.
He urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other relevant agencies to beam their searchlight into the alleged monetization of the electoral processes in the state and prevent a repeat of same scenario when it comes to the gubernatorial election proper.
