Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has declared that the All Progressives Congress (APC) cannot turn Nigeria to a one-party state. Governor Fayose said this in Ado Ekiti yesterday at the inauguration of 16 newly-elected council chairmen in the state.
“Our election was not inconclusive, we did not bring the person who did not contest to reap where he did not sow. We did not kill our candidate. The APC boycotted the election because they did not want to suffer 16-0 and 177-0 again. They boycotted because they did not want to suffer loss again,” he said.
“I am not a governor that will go and cringe because I don’t want anybody to pick on me for saying the truth. That will not happen. Let President Muhammadu Buhari make his anti-corruption war total”.
“Let him be bold enough to probe the Halliburton scandal and the $2 billion oil windfall”.
“President Goodluck Jonathan left with the dollar a little of N200 but it is now N300 to a dollar. When Buhari collected two jeeps and $300,000 he did not ask where the money came from”.
“Nigeria cannot be a one party state. They say PDP stole this and that, is APC a saint from Jerusalem? Buhari must stop selective anti-graft war,” he added.
He warned party leaders and members not to put needless pressure on the council bosses, just as he advised the chairmen to also empathize with the people when necessary.
