Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has condemned the baseless allegations levelled on the All Progressive Congress (APC) by Ekiti State, Governor, Ayodele Fayose at the weekend that the party was the achitech of last week Friday assasination attempt on APC governor, Kayode Fayemi.
He said Fayose and his PDP’s cohorts are afraid of losing the governorship seat in the July 14 election in Ekiti, promoting them to use kind of tactics to disrupt APC’s campaign winning train.
“Fayose should be reminded that the Akeredolu-led administration has performed creditably well in the last one year and few months.
“On Friday’s attack in Ekiti, we would like to refer Fayose to a statement by the Ekiti State police spokesperson, Caleb Okechukwu, who cleared the air on the issue. Investigation by the police has revealed that the shooter was a police officer brought from Lagos by an Ekiti politician.
“We, therefore, call the security agencies in the country to take note of the false accusation levelled against Akeredolu by Fayose and his town crier. It is also important for Fayose to know one very important fact that we are committed to the peaceful co-existence between the state and Ekiti.
“The seed of discord Fayose is trying to plant between the two states will not germinate no matter how much cunning he is. Akeredolu reserves every right to show support for the candidate of his party in Ekiti State, just as Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and the rest are showing support for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state. There is no law that prohibits that. Fayose and the PDP are making issues out of this because of the smell of defeat that has overwhelmed them,” he said.
