We Do Not Want You In APC, Lalong Tells Fayose

Simon Lalong

The Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalung has his Ekiti State counterpart, Ayodele Fayose to forget about decamping to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), saying he is not wanted in the party.

Responding to Fayose’s shock announcement that he might join another party before the 2018 Ekiti State Governorship election, Lalong who was the Chairman of the APC campaign committee in the just concluded Ondo election, said, he (Fayose) should stay in his party till after the 2018 election.

 He said, “The one I am waiting for is Ekiti. I understand that after Ondo, the man has been saying he wants to come to APC, we are saying he should remain in the PDP till after the election.

“We just came back from Ondo and we were again recruited yesterday to go to Rivers State again and conduct another election. Our own is to ask for your usual and continued support.

“Before now, some people were looking down on the APC, but now people with ambitions for 2019 are withdrawing from the PDP and coming to the APC.

“We are going to Rivers and we will win the elections there, after there, we are moving to Anambra and that one is a done deal,” the governor boasts.
