The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has said that it will not accept Governor Ayo Fayose as a member.

The party made the comment while criticizing Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola for visiting Fayose and praising his achievements.

The Ekiti APC made its remarks via a statement released by Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun.

The statement reads:

“Aregbesola’s visit to Fayose praising him as ‘omoluabi’ and for the achievements by APC-led government is not only embarrassing but also awful in the face of sustained attacks on APC members, some of whom are still languishing in jail for about two years over trumped-up charges by Fayose.”

“It is shocking that Aregbesola as a governor and one of the leading lights in APC in the South-west and indeed the nation would be visiting Ekiti State without putting the leaders into confidence, more so on a visit to a man who once wished the President dead and had done unbelievable things both in Nigeria and abroad to bring Buhari’s government down.

“Worse still, Aregbesola was praising the man who will stop at nothing to bring APC-led federal government down after several years of failed attempts by the progressives to win the presidency of Nigeria.”

Aregbesola visited the state over the weekend after being invited by Fayose to attend Ekiti’s 20th anniversary celebrations.
