The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress says that the Peoples Democratic Party in the state has turned itself to a laughing stock following its alleged commitment to derail the government of Dr Kayode Fayemi.
The APC State Publicity Secretary, Mr Ade Ajayi, said this in a statement made available to journalists on Saturday.
Ajayi was reacting to a communiqué issued by PDP stakeholders last week, expressing support for the party’s governorship candidate in the 2018 governorship election, Prof Kolapo Olusola’s decision to approach the Supreme Court in his quest for justice.
He asked Olusola “to stop wallowing in bitterness, agony and tears” but rise up to join Fayemi to develop the state.
“It is very sad and unfortunate that PDP could be playing on the sensibilities of Ekiti people who had rejected them in totality,” he said.
Ajayi added, “Their decision to recover a mandate at the Supreme Court is an effort in futility and mere academic exercise. PDP has no mandate to reclaim at the Supreme Court.
“Ekiti people had rejected PDP and its candidates as it was proved at the recently-concluded general elections where they were beaten hands down without rigging and irregularities.
“It was PDP that originated electoral offences like rigging, violence, ballot snatching, ballot stuffing and political assassinations in Nigeria. PDP should bury its face in shame and apologise to the good people of Ekiti State and Nigerians in general.
“The best bet now is for PDP members and Olusola to support and cooperate with the administration of Governor Fayemi in his bid to take the state to greater heights.
“The PDP stakeholders should learn the act of good governance, peaceful coexistence and unity of the state from Fayemi, instead of threatening the peace, economic prosperity and good governance of the state.”
