The Plateau state Governor, Simon Lalong has told Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state not to dream of decamping to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Lalong said this in response to Fayose’s announcement that he might not run for the 2018 Ekiti governorship election under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Plateau state Governor also told his Ekiti counterpart to remain in the PDP till after the 2018 election in Ekiti.

Lalong said “The one I am waiting for is Ekiti.

“I understand that after Ondo, the man has been saying he wants to come to APC, we are saying he should remain in the PDP till after the election.

“We just came back from Ondo and we were again recruited yesterday to go to Rivers State again and conduct another election. Our own is to ask for your usual and continued support.

“Before now, some people were looking down on the APC, but now people with ambitions for 2019 are withdrawing from the PDP and coming to the APC.

“We are going to Rivers and we will win the elections there, after there, we are moving to Anambra and that one is a done deal.”
