Otunba Niyi Adebayo, a former Governor of Ekiti State, on Monday in Abuja, said that Mr. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti became governor by accident.
He stated this while addressing journalist after the inauguration of a 4-member strategic committee headed by him, to investigate the reason why the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) lost the recent Anambra State Governorship election.
According to Otunba Adebayo who was asked whether APC could win Ekiti State, he said; “Basically, I believe the present governor got there surely by accident and I believe people are more than ready to change the place.”
He also added that ahead of the coming Ekiti State Governorship election this year, the APC is ready to unseat the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“Pertinently, I am somebody from Ekiti and the key player in Ekiti. I can tell you categorically that we are more than ready. I am sure that you’ve all heard that we are ready for elections in Ekiti.
“I believe all we have to do is to go through the process of selecting our candidate and once we have our candidate, I don’t see us having any problems in the general elections in Ekiti.”
Regarding his new assignment, he said that the committee was to figure out reason why the APC lost to the incumbent Governor, Willie Obiano, the candidate of The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
