Call Ekiti APC Members To Order Before They Truncate Democracy, Adeyeye Tells Buhari

Minister of State for Works, Prince Dayo Adeyeye has called on the President-Elect, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd) to call All Progressives Congress (APC) members in Ekiti State to order before they truncate democracy in the country.

The minister, who described the APC desperation to seize power in Ekiti State through the backdoor as a dangerous trend, added that the  APC members in the Ekiti State House of Assembly were capitalising on Buhari’s victory to cause crisis in the State.

He said the APC should stop behaving like party of bad losers. The minister said; “In 1999, Prof Tunde Adeniran of the PDP lost to Otunba Niyi Adebayo, Adeniran congratulated the winner. He did not go to court. It was in 2003 that Adebayo lost to Governor Ayodele Fayose that they went to the Tribunal. “Also, when Engr Segun Oni won election in 2007, these same APC people made Ekiti ungovernable for him.

“In 2011 when Fayose contested senatorial election and lost to Senator Babafemi Ojudu, he did not go to court. None of the PDP National Assembly candidates that lost in 2011 went to court.

“Since they lost the governorship to the PDP nine months ago, they have refused to accept defeat. It was as a result of this desperation to steal Ekiti people’s mandate that Chief Omolafe Aderiye was killed.
