I will chase APC out of South-West – Fayose


Ekiti Governor-elect, Mr. Ayo Fayose, has promised to chase the All Progressives Congress out of the South-West.

Fayose, who spoke after receiving his certificate of return at the Independent National Electoral Commission’s office in Ado Ekiti, on Thursday, said he will use his position as the new leader of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West to achieve this aim.

He received the certificate alongside his deputy, Dr. Olusola Eleka, amid cheers from his supporters who thronged the place.
“God as today by this certificate turned me to a leader in the South-West. I will go from here to begin to energise our people from one state to another until we take back our inheritance,” he said.

Fayose said he had no time to reply anyone who abused him in office as he was after people’s interest only and would avoid distractions.

“When you are running a race of life, you don’t look right or left. You must go for the goal and attain it. I am going for the goal like Awolowo. My target is the common people while I will respect the elite.”

Fayose said his appointment will be only for politicians and not technocrats.

He said, “There are many technocrats in the PDP. I won’t bring any technocrat from anywhere. If you are technocrat come back and do politics with us. Suffer like us, when we don’t sleep, you don’t sleep, don’t go and stay somewhere and say because you are a doctor, you are a professor we should come and give the post of politicians to you.”
