The governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, has mockingly told the All Progressives Congress (APC) to hire Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta state for its primary scheduled to hold on Friday, May 11, 2018. Governor Okowa chaired the committee that conducted the governorship primary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti state, on Tuesday, May 8, 2018. An exercise described by both aspirants and observers as transparent and credible. Speaking at the close of the exercise, Fayose said he would keep Okowa in the state till Friday so he could help the APC with their primary election. “We will keep Okowa here till Friday to help APC, if not they will not have any candidate. They will still continue to beat themselves”.
“They can’t conduct congresses, they do not represent the minds of the masses”.Reacting to Fayose’s statement, Governor Okowa said he is not part of the APC and cannot help them with their primary. “I decline to conduct the primary for APC. They need me back in Delta”. You will that the APC primary election which was conducted last Saturday, May 5, 2018 by Tanko Al-Madura, governor of Nasarawa state, was marred by violence.
