The Ekiti State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused its All Progressives Congress (APC) counterpart of playing to the gallery by asking Governor Ayo Fayose to publicly declare his assets like his predecessor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
The PDP argued that the APC lacks the moral justification to condemn Fayose for not making his assets public when many of the governors elected on its (APC) platform had not done likewise.
The Ekiti PDP in a statement issued on Wednesday by its Publicity Secretary, Jackson Adebayo, insisted that the opposition party in the state cannot compel Fayose to release details of his assets because the opposition has an ulterior motive by making such demand.
Rather than calling on Fayose to make public his assets declaration, the PDP urged the APC to direct the call to the 23 governors elected on its platform to do so before demanding for that from the Ekiti governor.
The PDP said until the APC does this, it would remain in “the wilderness of foolishness”, adding that “a party peopled by intelligent persons should know that you can only ask question on what you are not guilty of”.
While criticizing the APC for celebrating the assets declaration by President Muhammadu Buhari, the PDP claimed that the declaration by Buhari “contained many loopholes which no sensible person should be proud of”.
“The declaration made by Buhari cannot be compared to that made by the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua which till date has been adjudged as a perfect declaration by any Nigerian President”, the party stated.
