Immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has reacted to a statement by the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole attacking Governor Rochas Okorocha.
DAILY POST reports that Oshiomhole accused Okorocha of frustrating the APC candidate, an action he described as anti-party.
The former Edo state governor said that by denying Uzodinma use of the state’s stadium, the governor has shown he is working against the party.
Oshiomhole was quoted saying: “Buhari has adopted Hope Uzodimma as the governor of Imo state. I want you to go and tell people what I said.
“Nigeria needs to produce political leaders that have political concentration. How will you believe that an APC governor will lock the stadium against an APC governorship candidate?
“It is the tax payers’ money that is used to build that stadium and not his personal money.”
Reacting, Fayose said Oshiomhole’s statement showed the ruling party had failed.
According to him, failure of APC in Imo shows the ruling party has failed in Abuja too.
Fayose wrote: “When National Chairman of a political party proclaims the Chairman of his party’s Govs’ Forum as a failure, no further questioning as to the fact that the party and its govt is a complete failure.
“Failure in Imo is synonymous with failure in Abuja.”
