Ekiti State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bola Olu-Ojo has said that members of the party in the State will remain intact, alleging that; “out fear and desire to deceive the public, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the State is planning to stage defection of imaginary PDP leaders to the party (ACN).”

Olu-Ojo, in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti and made available to journalists today, said he was aware of plan to hold rally in Ido-Osi Local Government Area for the “defection” of former Secretary to the State Government, Evangelist Ade Alofe and former Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Chief Friday Aderemi to the ACN this week.

Said he; “In their bid to further deceive Nigerians about their acceptability by Ekiti people, the poll robbers in the ACN have now perfected plans to celebrate the defection of some imaginary PDP leaders to their party.

“Anytime from now, the media are going to be awash with stories and pictures of Evangelist Ade Alofe, Friday Aderemi and their 'supporters' defection to ACN.

“This self deceit is the ACN governor, Kayode Fayemi's way of reassuring his Lagos sponsor, who is already becoming uncomfortable with the way he (Fayemi) has been handling the State's politics that he is capable of carrying out the task of turning Ekiti to a one party state.”

Describing the plot as “deceit of the century,” Olu-Ojo said; “For the avoidance of doubt, both Alofe and Aderemi decamped to the AC last year and this is known to everyone. It was a meeting of the party held in Akure that Alofe was returning from when his vehicle rammed into three people at Ikere-Ekiti and killed them.

“Therefore, if anyone is planning to celebrate the duo's defection, may be they are defecting from AC to ACN.”

While urging the judiciary installed ACN government in the State to focus more on the onerous task of equalling the landmark achievements recorded by the PDP government of Chief Olusegun Oni, the Chairman said; “In other States, governance by deceit can work, but in Ekiti, it can't.

“Ekiti people want to see and enjoy what the governor does with their money, not what he says or what is published about him on the pages of newspapers.

“Fayemi and his ACN should therefore face the task of governance and desist from deceits and reign of illegalities, which have become the hallmark of his government.”
