Call APC Members In Ekiti To Order, Adeyeye Tells Buhari
Minister of State for Works, Prince Dayo Adeyeye has called on the President-Elect, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd) to call All Progressives Congress (APC) members in Ekiti State to order before they truncate democracy in the country.
The minister, who described the APC desperation to seize power in Ekiti State through the backdoor as a dangerous trend, added that the APC members in the Ekiti State House of Assembly were capitalising on Buhari’s victory to cause crisis in the State. He said the APC should stop behaving like party of bad losers.
The minister said; “In 1999, Prof Tunde Adeniran of the PDP lost to Otunba Niyi Adebayo, Adeniran congratulated the winner. He did not go to court. It was in 2003 that Adebayo lost to Governor Ayodele Fayose that they went to the Tribunal.
“Also, when Engr Segun Oni won election in 2007, these same APC people made Ekiti ungovernable for him. In 2011 when Fayose contested senatorial election and lost to Senator Babafemi Ojudu, he did not go to court. None of the PDP National Assembly candidates that lost in 2011 went to court.
“Since they lost the governorship to the PDP nine months ago, they have refused to accept defeat. It was as a result of this desperation to steal Ekiti people’s mandate that Chief Omolafe Aderiye was killed.
“Today again, they killed Modupe Temitope Olaya in Efon-Alaaye and one wonders why these APC people derive joy in shedding blood of innocent Ekiti sons and daughters. Why must there be crisis in Ekiti each time the APC elements lose power to the PDP? Should Ekiti State be held down whenever APC elements lose power?
“Gen Buhari must not let these desperate APC members in Ekiti State drag his name and reputation in the mud by using his name to cause chaos in Ekiti. “
