Immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has said that he may consider joining the All Progressives Congress if his preferred candidate in the Peoples Democratic Party loses the party gubernatorial ticket.
He said that he would better destroy PDP in Ekiti and then join Governor Fayemi in APC than to allow those who disobey him in PDP to win the election.
Fayose spoke on Monday while addressing his supporters at Afao Ekiti after endorsing Kolawole as his preferred candidate for the coming governorship election in the state.
Recall that Fayose had presented the former House of Assembly Member who represented Efon Constituency to his supporters across the 177 political wards in the state in preparation for his victory in the party’s primary.
Ahead of the primary election coming up early next year, the former governor charged his supporters to ensure victory for Kolawole.
He, however, threatened that he would defect to APC if his candidate fails to win the PDP ticket.
“My people, do not be afraid of the primary election ahead, you will all recall I bought the forms for the majority of the party’s executives from the ward level to the state level. I know some of them have already betrayed me but I have no fear about that. Don’t forget I am Peter the rock, my anointed candidate Bisi Kolawole will do all his best to win and if the worst happens, I will pack my load and work with Governor Fayemi.
“I will better destroy the party than allow those who won’t listen to me to win the main election. I will advise you all to go home and work with delegates, don’t allow them to hijack this my greatest asset which is the Ekiti PDP,” he said
