The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has described claims by the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Deputy National Chairman (South), Chief Segun Oni that they were not involved in any plot to compromise a section of the Judiciary to remove the Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose from office as mere face-saving, saying; “It is welcome development and Nigerians should hold them to their words going by the fact that they are men that double-speak and now that they have
denied, we will keep our fingers crossed and watch them.”
“Their denial is just face saving, perhaps because they have also realised the fact that the judiciary under Justice Walter Onnoghen will not allowed itself to be dragged into the mud.
This is more so that Fayemi, in particular has always proved to Nigerians that he is a man of double-speak and a betrayal of confidence, who betrayed his benefactor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu that brought him from obscurity to political limelight.
In a statement sent to The SUPREME by Lere Olayinka, the Chief Press Secretary to Ekiti State Governor, he said, Ekiti State PDP Publicity Secretary, Mr Jackson Adebayo, said; “Since Segun Oni has said that no judiciary can remove Governor Fayose now because he enjoys immunity until the expiration of his tenure on October 15, 2018, we want them to know that we are ready for 2018 and the APC should also prepare for that 2018 when the party and whoever it presents as candidate will have another opportunity of being roundly defeated by the PDP.”
The PDP said that Fayemi, Oni and others should be reminded that “This is Ekiti and the strategy used to manipulate elections for the APC will not work here.”
Adebayo said; “They have said it is not true that they are plotting to destabilise Ekiti State, by seeking the removal of Governor Fayose, using a compromised judge, and we want them to be held by their own words, hoping that it won’t be true as they said.”
The PDP reminded Fayemi and Segun Oni of how the APC, out of desperation tried to use the judiciary to prevent Governor Fayose from assuming office in 2014, even after winning the June 21, 2014 governorship election convincingly and he (Fayose) had been congratulated by Fayemi.
“We were in this State when Fayemi conceded defeat and went on to congratulate Governor Fayose. But the same Fayemi latter went to the Tribunal, Appeal Court and the Supreme Court, trying to upturn the election result.
