Mr Dare Adeleke, Chairman, Oyo Pacesetters Transport Company, has alleged that Ayo Fayose’s latest alignment with Bola Tinubu is to deliver the South-West to Asiwaju in 2023 in exchange for reprieve from his multiple cases of fraud in the EFCC.
Adeleke described the former governor of Ekiti State as treacherous and mischievous in view of his disposition in the wake of the leadership crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West.
Recalled that Fayose had, in a recent statement, referred to Makinde as a political child. A group loyal to Fayose had also recently attacked Makinde of positioning himself as the party leader in the South-West, alleging that he was an agent of the All Progressive Congress adding that the Oyo State governor was behind the preponderance of lawsuits against the party in Ekiti and Osun states.
Adeleke’s statement signed and made available to journalists in Ibadan on Tuesday.
The statement read in part:
“Ayo Fayose’s fall from grace in his first outing as governor is traceable to his behaviours. Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo called him ‘the Prodigal of the South-West.’ Unfortunately, Ayo Fayose is unrepentant and has become even more brazen in his recklessness because he suddenly has found himself as the utility room for some ‘big men’ who he has sold his conscience to once again.
“What happens in a utility room is that every junk is dumped there. Fayose has become subjugated and captured by some filthy lucre. Who doesn’t know Ayo Fayose? He may have met his match in his new ally, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Fayose’s prodigious rigmarole may be finally checked but I would still advise the Asiwaju to watch his back. Fayose cannot be trusted.
“Fayose cannot look in the mirror and see. How can we forget his seeming devilry at storming the EFCC like a cowboy only to turn into a whimpering rat when it was obvious he was going to jail? He began to sing in new tones and even praised Buhari who he, hitherto, rained curses on without a care?
“The whole world knows that Fayose’s latest alignment with Bola Tinubu is to deliver the South-West to Asiwaju in 2023 in exchange for reprieve from his multiple cases of fraud in the EFCC. Governor Seyi Makinde did not mention anybody’s name in his statement where he stressed the need to unite the party in the zone but it would seem, the guilty are afraid.
“The truth is that Governor Seyi Makinde is the recognised leader of the South-West PDP and there is nothing Fayose can do about it.”
