I’ll Never Betray Jonathan- Fayose


Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has restated his absolute loyalty to President Goodluck Jonathan and his party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), promising that if every person deserts Jonathan he would not.
He also alerted of the alleged plot by members of All Progressives Congress (APC) to cause havoc in Ekiti State after the May 29, 2015 handover.
The governor stated these in his address to the people in Ado-Ekitito on Wednesday April 23, 2015.
His words: “I wish to declare unequivocally that I remain loyal to President
Jonathan even after May 29 as my support for his re-election and
administration was not about bread-and-butter. “I was convinced he was moving Nigeria in the right direction, despite all the noise. I have no regrets supporting him. If same situation presents itself again, I would do it all over.
“Let me state clearly that if President Jonathan is deserted by all
Nigerians today, I, Ayodele Fayose, would remain with him. I have chosen to be his last-man standing.
“If for this show of loyalty to Mr. President and my party, APC and its leaders believe that the best way to pay me back is to make Ekiti
ungovernable, the decision on appropriate reaction belongs to the people, whose mandate I keep in trust.
“It is ironic that those who said worse things about the
President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), when they were in opposing parties, are the ones milling around him today, using him as an electoral talisman and demonising us for saying things of lesser
magnitude during a campaign that was mainly characterised by
hate-messages from both divides.
“I also want to put on record that if all PDP members defect to APC today, I will remain the last-man standing for the party, even I
have no cause to denigrate the office of the president.
“I also promise APC a robust and engaging opposition both in the South-West, and nationally, with me playing a prominent role.
“Let me again state that I will continue to seek peace with my
traducers and troublers of Ekiti.
Since the Supreme Court judgement which held my 2006 impeachment as
illegal, unconstitutional, null and void and of no effect, my
preaching has been peace. This is to see if a hand of fellowship as
urged by elders in the state and the nation at large would bring
sanity to the opposition camp. It definitely has nothing to do with cowardice; as Ekiti is a land of the brave.”
He also disclosed that a source from the opposition pointed out to him that APC
leaders were yet to get over that in the entire South-West, Ekiti was the only
state they could not “rob” for General Mohammed Buhari (rtd), stressing that the
“eagle-eyed surveillance of Ekiti people” ensured that.

On the alleged threat to destablise the state, Fayose stated: “I have
decided to put on notice the United Nations (UN) and the African Union
(AU) on the imminent reign of impunity by APC as from May 29.
“Since Ekiti people are certain to resist the planned plundering of
their land, Nigerians and the world at large should know who to hold
responsible in the event of anarchy in Ekiti State in particular and
the entire Yorubaland.”
