The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has reacted to the claim by an All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship aspirant in the state Gbenga Aluko, that he is begging to join the party.

Recall, the Former Senate Deputy Chief Whip, Aluko, had on Sunday, accused Fayose of making surreptitious moves to join the APC having realized that the PDP can’t win the impending election.

Promptly reacting to the claim, the governor via a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Idowu Adelusi, described the report as false.

In the statement, Fayose stated that leaving PDP for APC is as good as “leaving Jesus Christ for Satan.”

The statement reads;

“The news going viral that Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose is making move to defect to APC, is false. It is a figment of imagination of the APC which manufactured the story.

“Joining APC is like leaving Jesus Christ for Satan. It is like wanting to die by taking Gamalin 20, or planning to commit suicide by jumping down from skye scrapper.

“Fayose will never join the APC, rather, he would welcome APC members to the PDP.

“Fayose is preoccupied with plan to transit power from PDP to PDP Ekiti in 2018.”
