Ekiti2018: Fayemi’s declaration that APC will regain power, an empty boast – Kolawole


The Director General of Kolapo Olusola Campaign Organisation, Chief Bisi Kolawole, has predicted victory for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming governorship election.

Kolawole expressed confidence that the Deputy Governor, who is also the PDP candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, will defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on the strength of the performance of the ruling party for over three years in power.

Speaking with reporters in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, Kolawole described Fayemi’s declaration that the APC will use every power at its disposal to regain power at the July 14 election as an “empty boast.”

Kolawole, who is also the Commissioner for Environment said Fayemi’s emergence as flag bearer of the APC, would make the PDP victory “more resounding.”

According to the former Ekiti State House of Assembly member, he boasted that the APC will suffer another humiliating defeat with Fayemi as the candidate.

Kolawole said: “This is somebody who held the dog with his two hands and he allowed the dog to escape. And he is now making noise. The truth of the matter is that Fayemi is a loser and ingrate. He was packaged for the people of Ekiti and the people have rejected him.”

“Fayemi came in as an inexperienced fellow and he betrayed all those who assisted him to be governor. He is just blabbing and seeking attention.

“But let me say if the APC is so unfortunate to have Fayemi as it flag bearer, I can bet you the party would go into extinction in Ekiti.

“With his declaration, Fayemi had embarked on his last political journey to perdition for that matter .When you listen to him carefully, he tried to imitate governor and he did that wrongly.

“If you want to imitate you do it correctly. You will recall that it was Fayose who first issued a red card to APC.”

“We in PDP don’t take him serious, because we have our people on ground, if anybody thinks there is a Federal might somewhere. The person must be deluding himself.

“Fayemi has much baggage and he remains barred from holding public offices. He can’t spring any surprise any longer. Even, when he declared, how commissioners or other members of his cabinet followed him?

On the gale of defections rocking PDP in Ekiti, Kolawole said it was a product of an alleged inordinate ambition of some former members.

“Those leaving PDP are Abuja politicians who don’t want to agree that there is a new leadership in PDP. But as they are leaving, other people are coming in. We are even happy that they left because they have been making concrete resolution difficult in PDP”.

Responding to a question on whether the non-payment of salaries could affect the chances of the party, Kolawole said the workers are enlightened and reasonable.

He said: “They know that governor meant well for them. He would not do anything to denigrate or intimidate them. The governor has promised to clear all the backlogs before expiration of his tenure.”
