Dayo accused Fayose of instigating violence
chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, has accused Governor Ayo Fayose of instigating the resurgence of violence and killings ahead of the governorship election taking place in the state next month.
The former Minister of State for Works made the allegation in a statement issued on Monday by Mr Omoniyi Ojo, the Director of Media of his campaign organisation, PAAM.
Adeyeye said the governor should be held responsible for the destruction of the billboards and other campaign materials of the APC candidate in the governorship election, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
Reacting, however, Governor Fayose said the inordinate governorship ambition of Adeyeye and his shocking defeat at the PDP governorship primary was responsible for his unguarded statements against his administration.
Fayose, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, said it was unfortunate that Adeyeye has become totally blinded to know the current political realities in the state.
Advising him to wake up, Fayose further said the former minister and his cohorts would never be able to take the people of the state for fools “as the people would never board a ship heading for destruction”.
The former minister accused Fayose of been known for violent acts in the past and alleged that he has been heating up the polity by issuing threatening statements against perceived enemies of his administration.
Adeyeye, who recently defected from PDP to APC, further alleged that the governor has gagged traditional rulers and sacked civil servants and political appointees who were perceived to be supporting the opposition in the state.
He however assured that peace would return to the state and that the PDP administration would be sent packing from office after July 14 governorship election.
