The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has reacted to Governor Ayodele Fayose’s accusation that the party was plotting the manipulation of the judiciary to re-open Army Panel report on the 2014 governorship poll to have his election victory reversed.
Fayose had in a letter to the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, accused former Governor Segun Oni and Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, of clandestine moves to coerce the judiciary to use Army Panel report to reverse his election victory, praying the CJN to resist the move to preserve democracy and integrity of the judiciary.
But APC Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, scoffed at the allegation, describing it as the “ranting of a notorious blackmailer, electoral robber, political harlot and a pathological liar”. He said Fayose was afraid of his own shadow as a “lawless misfit in the position of authority who has no respect for the supreme law of the country after his serial rapes on the Constitution but who is now jittery and as a result, has resorted to blackmail.”
Accusing Fayose of crying wolf where none exists, Olatunbosun said there was nowhere Fayemi and Oni met to boast that he would be removed, noting that the governor was only jittery and afraid of the consequences of his many infractions on the law.
