“Me, Arming Thugs?….Laughable”, My APC Accusers Are Men Of Unsound Minds, Says Fayose

‎Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has described the allegation by the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he was arming thugs as “not only ridiculous but coming from an unsound mind”.

Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Idowu Asdelusi, described as “shameless lie” the claim by the State Chapter of the APC that the governor was arming ten thugs per local government in the State, saying; “APC is obviously calling for a coup against a governor democratically elected, whose tenure is fixed and mode of possible removal from office is stipulated in the Constitution of Nigeria.”

He‎ said the tone of the press release by the APC really showed the poor state of mind of those running the affairs of party.

“There is no point wrestling with pigs. For people with sound, discerning minds, they would, no doubt, wonder why somebody with a decent background and sound mind would refer to the governor of his state as needing psychiatric attention or not been able to survive in a law abiding society?

“Politics apart, this is madness taken too far and beyond redemption. Governo‎r Ayodele Fayose came and cleaned up the mess left by the APC government of Dr Kayode Fayemi and it’s hordes of blood suckers, who made Ekiti State to bleed to a point of coma. He has not only been alive to his duty as the indefatigable leader of the state, but has consistently put smiles on the faces of the people.

He said it was shameful that the same party that ran Ekiti State aground, through reckless borrowing and mismanagement of the State finances could want to present itself as speaking for the people whose future they mortgaged.

“It‎ was the APC government of Fayemi that came to office and started with bloodletting with the murder of Chief Adeleye Awolumate and ended with no fewer than 12 murders, including a 400 level student of Accounting in the Ekiti State University, Teslim Abiola.

“If the APC goons are piqued that Mr Governor is criticising the President, they can relocate to Abuja and denounce their indiqeneship of Ekiti State. They must know that Governor Fayose, like any other Nigerian, is exercising his constitutional rights of freedom of speech. He has not breached anybody’s rights by constructively commenting on national issues.

“It is obvious that having failed in their efforts to gained access to the Ekiti State Government through the backdoor, they now desired a situation whereby the State Government House will also be invaded by the DSS as it was done in Akwa-Ibom State, but on this one, they will fail as usual.”

“Governor Fayose clearly expressed his minds in the interview they are trying to capitalise on by warning that any attempt to destabilise his government could lead to the downfall of the APC government and he stands by what he said. The governor never said he was going to bring the government of President Mohammadu Buhari down.

“Therefore, Nigerians do not need the apology of a group of shameless hypocrites like the APC in Ekiti State. Rather, what Nigerians need at this time is someone who can look at President Buhari in the eyes and tell him the bitter truth, and that’s exactly what Governor Fayose is doing

“The APC loudmouths in Ekiti State would do themselves a lot of good by forcing themselves to get over their woeful performance in Ekiti elections and the ‘Amalekite-kind’ of defeat they suffered in the June 21, 2014 governorship election. For how long would they continue to wail?”
