The Ekiti state chapter of the All Progressives Congress has told Governor Ayo Fayose that it has the right to seek redresss in court regarding the circumstances surrounding his victory in the June 21, 2014 election.

The APC insisted that the election was anything but free and fair.

Fayose had on Monday accused his predecessor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, of plotting to use the judiciary to remove him from office.

The state APC Deputy Chairman, Mrs. Kemisola Olaleye, who spoke at a rally organised by the party for members in Ado Ekiti Local Government said Fayose was being haunted by crimes allegedly committed against the Constitution and the people of the state.

Describing the APC as “the most popular party in the state waiting to chase Fayose out of power,” she promised a level-playing field for all aspirants jostling for the 2018 governorship ticket.

“Fayose has been saying that he is about to be removed from office and we in the APC are saying a resounding amen to his prayer. We are taking over power from him and we are determined to chase him out of office. He is afraid of his own shadow.

“If he likes, let him call thousands of press conferences. Ekiti people are tired of his government, civil servants, artisans, market women, youths, students, all of them are tired and they are waiting for APC to give them better life.”

The state APC Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said no amount of blackmail and propaganda by the governor would dissuade the party from seeking justice against the alleged use of military and other instruments of coercion to rig the 2014 poll.

He said the popularity of the APC was making Fayose and PDP jittery.
