Shock As Lalong Rejects Fayose’s Alleged Move To Join APC

By Ikenga Chronicles December 1, 2016

At the wake of the alleged move by the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose to join the ruling the All Progressives Congress(APC) ahead of 2018 governorship election, Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong has on Thursday, December 1, expressly rejected the Ekiti Governor.

Lalong called on Fayose to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) until after his state’s governorship election in 2018.

While speaking to reporters during the APC North Central zonal Congress, held in Abuja he advised Fayose to perish the thought of joining the APC now that the party is consolidating its hold in the South West.

Recall that Lalong led the APC’s national campaign team to the just concluded Ondo State Governorship elections.

Fayose had announced that he may dump the PDP to find an alternative platform for his planned successor.

While making the threat, he was quoted as saying, “Today, I am the only one among the APC governors in the South-West.”

In an apparent response to Fayose’s threat to dump the opposition PDP, 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.”
