Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has accused Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Adamu Mu’azu of having a secret meeting with the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.

Fayose said further that Mu’azu was not totally committed to the PDP during the elections.

The governor made the statements on Monday, May 11, 2015, during a programme on Channels TV.

“Shortly before my election, he (Mu’azu) was to see me and I waited for him in his house for about five hours and then he came out to say he was sorry and that we should give him space. He said the Yoruba people should give him some space because he was expecting someone who did not want to see any Yoruba man,” Fayose said.

“I left his house but kept a tab on him. His house is like a ring road and I came back to find out who had come to see him and the person was Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. That is the truth. When I returned to his house, he told me that I should not be annoyed that it was Tinubu that came to visit him. I was worried because the Ekiti election was just five days away and I almost lost my breath,” he added.

“The day the presidential election held, the chairman was not in the country. On the day the names of our candidates were to be submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, our chairman was in Lagos, on his way to Singapore,” Fayose continued.

“I was with President Jonathan on that day and I told him to call him. The President did not know that Mu’azu was in Lagos on his way to Singapore. Even when he travelled recently, he said he had a problem with his left hand and wanted to travel abroad for treatment. However, he called some people and told them that he had deceived the President. You must be consistent in character. I am saying everything on camera; let him come out to deny these allegations. I don’t want to be in a PDP where we have betrayers of all sorts,” the governor said.

Mu’azu however denied the allegations urging Fayose to focus on governing his state and paying his workers’ salaries instead of troubling him.

The governor has been at the forefront of calls for Mu’azu resignation and also accused the PDP Chairman of selling the party to the APC during the recently held elections.
