Remain in PDP! APC Tells Fayose


Still basking in the euphoria of its recent
governorship election victory in Ondo State, the All
Progressives Congress,APC, has mocked the
governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose,
advising him to stay put in his factionalized
Peoples Democratic Party,PDP.
The advice was given by the governor of Plateau
State, Mr. Simon Lalong, who spoke on the
sidelines of yesterday’s North Central Zonal
Congress of the APC in Abuja.
This came as Fayose said he would never join the
party, saying he remained constant and unshaken
in the PDP.
Lalong said the party was eagerly waiting to take
over Ekiti, Rivers, and Anambra states just as it did
in Edo and Ondo states.
He said: “The one I am waiting for is Ekiti. I
understand that after Ondo, the man (Fayose) has
been saying he wants to come to APC. He should
remain in the PDP till after the elections. We just
came back from Ondo and we were again recruited
yesterday to go to Rivers and conduct another
“Before now, some people were looking down on
APC, but now people with ambition 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.”
However, Fayose had while clarifying what he
meant by possibly seeking an alternative platform

man-made crisis rocking the PDP persists till
2018, rather than allow them to mess us up like
they did in Ondo, we may have to seek an
alternative and credible platform. We are not
people who betray the confidence of their people.
We shall carry our leaders and the people along.
“I will never dump PDP for APC. I remain strong
and unshaken for the PDP. I can’t jump the boat ,
even if I want to jump, I won’t jump into the red
sea. Why should I leave the PDP and join a party
of hunger like APC? Ekiti is different from Ondo. By
the grace of God, there will be a repeat of history
here in 2018, I shall repeat the 16-0 that I gave
them in 2014.
”I operate like the biblical Elisha because those
with us are greater than theirs. The God of Israel
that conquered Philistines shall be on our side.
The fact that they rigged PDP out of Ondo state
does not mean they won the hearts of the people.
Sooner than later, the joy they procured by
dubious means will turn into ashes in their
mouths. Their so-called victory is nothing but
