Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State while speaking at a gathering in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital on Wednesday said that he cannot join the All Progressives Congress (APC) even if he decides to leave his current party.
According to Fayose, the APC used Senator Bola Tinubu to achieve its 2015 victory in the country, but was abandoned eventually after he helped them get into power.
“Some people have been making overtures to me to join the APC, but I cannot join them. With what have they repaid somebody like Asiwaju Tinubu? He worked and helped the party to secure victory but has been dumped. That is not a party I would be interested in joining.
“One thing I would not allow is for anybody to rubbish our leaders in the South-West. Our leaders, including Asiwaju Tinubu must be accorded their due respect, as any attempt to rubbish them will be taken as a slap on the entire Yoruba race.”
