Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose has declared that he will never leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC), under any guise.
Fayose said what he told newsmen was distorted by those he called agents of darkness and mischief makers.
He had earlier said that he was not going to run as Governor in 2018, under the umbrella of the PDP.
According to Punch, Fayose said “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 Ekiti Governor also promised to do projects that will remain in the minds of the people of Ekiti state.
Adding that “Chief Obafemi Awolowo died 29 years ago, but his works live on. I want people in 10, 20, 50, to think of one Ayo Fayose that governed Ekiti and opened up Ado Ekiti, built a new Oja Oba Market, the flyover, dualisation of many towns among other landmark projects.
“I have raised the bar of development in Ado Ekiti, I have raised the respect for Ewi and no governor can come to Ekiti and undermine this town and the throne.
“I shall do more to promote this palace to the extent that our opponents will have no space within this palace to construct any structure.”
Governor Ayo Fayose also boasted that the APC can never take over Ekiti like they did in Ondo state.
