The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State, Paul Omotoso, and other party leaders have told Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekti State to perish the thought of joining the APC until he clears himself of several criminal cases hanging on his neck.

The governor had on Monday hinted that he might leave the Peoples Democratic Party “if the need arises.”

But Omotosho, according to a statement by the state’s Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, advised the outgoing governor to conclude his court cases bordering on alleged crimes before contemplating to join the APC.

He said, “We want to prove to the world that the APC will not provide sanctuary for criminal suspects, political prostitutes and lepers. We will never admit such character to this party and we advise Fayose to play his politics of destruction somewhere else.

“Fayose’s criminal prosecution on the 2005 poultry project fraud resumes on November 4, 2018. Fayose cannot turn Ekiti APC to a haven and sanctuary for criminal suspects and we advise him to forget any plan to smear Ekiti APC with criminal records.

“The APC is a political party bounded by common ideals of integrity, openness, discipline and commitment to common goal of progressive governance, which Fayose does not possess or believe as can be seen from his style of politics and governance.

“Fayose over the years abused, disrespected and openly denigrated President Muhammadu Buhari, the leader of our party who is also the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces.

"Fayose is coming to destroy our party and ensure President Buhari does not get a second term in 2019 and we won’t allow Fayose’s evil plan to materialise.”

Stating that on no account would Fayose be admitted into the APC, Omotosho warned all ward chairmen against accepting him into the party.
