The former Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has boasted that no senator, either serving or retired can match him or any former governor in term of the financial strength in politics.
Fayose said this while addressing his supporters in Ekiti, also mocked his former political associates, Senator Biodun Olujimi and Prince Dayo Adeyeye, saying they were toeing the path to perdition.
Both Fayose and Olujimi’s camps have been laying claim to victory since the conduct of the PDP ward congress held in Ekiti last week.
“Let me say clearly to you that we are not going to share position with anybody .We all going to the congress and we shall win all available positions. Reports reaching has it that our opponents in the party had been reaching out to the national secretariat that the positions should be shared.”
“We are not going to allow this. They have started a battle they cannot finish. And we are ready for them. None of them can match me. Even if you have been a senator for ten years, you cannot stand a former governor. We have the resources to prosecute this battle. The snake has been scorched already.” Fayose boasted
Attacking Prince Adeyeye, Fayose said; “This is how we warned Adeyeye but he never listen. But look at his situation now. He had been on sick bed since the APC dealt a terrible blow on him. Those who are against me now shall suffer same fate in no distant time as Adeyeye. I am not a baby in the game of politics.”
Though, Adeyeye had since joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) but Fayose won’t stop ridiculing him in public since he lost the legal battle to retain his senatorial seat.
Although the PDP Appeal Panel is yet to make official pronouncement on the matter, Fayose said the case was a forgone conclusion.
The panel scampered to safety when violence broke out at the PDP secretariat in Ado-Ekiti as supporters of the two gladiators engaged one another in free-for all. Many people were injured.
He also used the occasion to present his anointed candidate for the PDP chairmanship position in the Bisi Kolawole to his supporters.
