Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has finally made real his threat to expose alleged under dealings between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Adamu Muazu and the All Progressives Congress (APC) before the general elections.
In an interview with Channels Television on Monday, Fayose recalled the treatment he got during a visit to Mu’azu five days before his election last year.
In Fayose’s words: “I was in his (Mu’azu’s) house for five hours, few days to my election. He didn’t attend to me. He later came out to address us that he’s expecting a visitor in his house, who doesn’t want to see any Yoruba man.
“I was insistence and was later persuaded to leave. Since then, I kept tab on him. I drove out to watch him closely down to the ring-road close to his house. There, I realised that the important figure was Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
“When I returned, he told me himself, maybe he has forgotten or not. He confidently told me. He said ‘Ayo, sorry, It’s Tinubu.’
“Imagine the national chairman of a party, sending away his party members to receive, the leader of an opposition party!”
On why he is admired by the people, Fayose said “They (candidates) want the vote of a leper, but they cannot shake the leprous. They want the vote of a groundnut seller, they cannot shake the groundnut seller.
“I’m a local man, I don’t use bullet proof cars, I wind down the glass of my car to see my people and wave to them, encourage them and make them happy
