A United Kingdom-based chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State, Opeyemi Falegan, has described the emergence of Ekiti governor-elect, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, as well as the new Minister from the state, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, as a threat to the All Progressives Congress in the South-West geo-political zone.
Falegan said this in a statement in Ado-Ekiti on Monday.
He said both Fayose and Adeyeye were tested individuals and that the relevance of the APC would soon disappear if the two politicians cooperate and work together.
“The two politicians have been tested and performed credibly well in the past and there is no doubt that, they will consolidate and surpass their past records in their new positions and the development will be a great blow and irredeemable fall of the APC. Within a short time, the APC dominance in South-West will become a thing of the past,” he said.
Fayose of the PDP defeated Governor Kayode Fayemi of the APC in the June 21 governorship election in Ekiti.
Falegan commended the PDP leaders, loyalists and the Ekiti electorate for their support and belief in the party, saying the triumph of the PDP in the election was as a result of the trust that the people had in the party in the past.
He advised both Fayose and Adeyeye not to be overwhelmed by their current status but to see their positions as a call to service and carry out their duties with utmost fear of God.
