Governor of Plateau State Barrister Simon Lalong on Thursday said that, Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose is not welcome in All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor, however, boasted that the APC would soon reclaim Ekiti State from PDP, saying that APC would replicate the successes the party recorded in Edo and Ondo States.
Mr Fayose had reportedly threatened to leave the PDP.
The governor stated this at the North Central zonal congress of the APC for the election of persons to fill vacant national positions for the zone in Abuja.
The governor who tactically addressed Mr Fayose said that, “the one I am waiting for is Ekiti. I understand that after Ondo, the man has been saying he wants to come to APC. We are saying he should remain in PDP till after the election.”
According to him, “We just came back from Ondo and we were again recruited yesterday (Wednesday) to go to Rivers again and conduct another election. Our own is to ask for your usual and continued support.
“Before now, some people were looking down on APC, but now people with ambitions for 2019 are withdrawing from the PDP and coming to the APC. We are going to Rivers and we will win the elections there. After there, we are moving to Anambra and that one is a done deal,” the governor stated.
