The party's spokesperson, Taiwo Olatunbosun accused Fayose of trying to incite violence in the state.
Falana had earlier called for Fayose’s prosecution, following revelations made by former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) secretary, Tope Aluko.
Aluko alleged that Fayose used the military to rig the 2014 Governorship elections in Ekiti state.
In its reaction, the APC Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun said the Ekiti state Governor should shut up and stop insulting Nigerians.
Vanguard reports that the APC spokesman also said “Fayose is jittery and that is why he is stoking violence. He has started attacking individuals in Ekiti State like he did during his first aborted tenure in 2006.”
He said “We want to remind Fayose that many of his party leaders, who still have a modicum of integrity, have also left PDP in droves because they could not stand the shame he has brought upon them through the Ekitigate scandal planned and executed by him and some of his cohorts. Therefore, Falana cannot be an exception.”
Adding that “Fayose is being haunted by his criminal past and there is no way he will not meet his comeuppance no matter how he tries to evade justice.”
“Through his past and present deeds, decent people of the world have since discovered that Fayose is a threat to democracy and Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, law and order in the society and everyone knows that there is no way he can operate in a society where the law works,” Olatunbosun said.
Governor Ayo Fayose has since denied the allegations of rigging levelled against him by Tope Aluko.
