Ekiti’s former Gov Ayo Fayose has backtracked after publicly declaring Gov. S. Makinde the PDP leader in the southwest following the Oyo governor’s candidate’s victory at the recent zonal vice chairmanship election held in Osogbo.
Fayose insists there was no way Taofeek Arapaja who had more supporters and votes could have defeated his own candidate Eddy Olafeso in a poll attended by ghouls and genies and zombies from a cemetery near the congress venue.
“I contested the election and lost and their candidate won. What could be more fraudulent, my people?” he said during an interview on Channels TV Wednesday.
According to him, he raised the alarm while the demons and goblins were voting, but the bedlam created by the thugs bussed in from Oyo drowned his voice of objection.
“I have decided to let things slide on the outside,” he said.
“But I know within me that my one-man army crushed by a host of long-armed fighters and an S. Makinde in Osogbo was a show of strength.”
He said he could have left the party but he’s not ready to leave the way others do—defecting with fanfares.
