Report revealed that, the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Thursday spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti that, he will not stop attacking the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
The governor, who said he owed nobody any apology for exposing the alleged hypocrisy of the APC leaders, accused them of placing personal interests above national interest.
The Governor, through his chief press secretary was reacting to criticisms that had trailed his campaign for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party and his continuous attacks on Buhari..
According to him, the APC has not only packaged lies and tried to foist such on Nigerians, it has also compromised the Independent National Electoral Commission to rig the election earlier scheduled for February 14.
He said, “I remember then as the ad hoc chairman of the PDP committee to shop for the presidential candidate to replace former President Olusegun Obasanjo, a crop of suitable, brilliant, healthy and competent northern politicians in the PDP were shortlisted by me for Obasanjo to pick from, but he overruled the list and asked me to contact the late Umaru Musa Yar’ Adua because he preferred him.
“In fairness to the late President, he objected to the offer on health grounds, but Obasanjo insisted that he must be the President.”
Fayose wondered why Buhari could not appear at the APC organised rally in London on Wednesday if indeed he was not on hospital bed.
He said the much-talked about Chatham House lecture was a face-saving measure to cover the true position of Buhari’s health, adding that most of those attacking him were doing so because he stuck out his neck to expose the lies of the APC.
