The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, Mr Taiwo Adisa has said that his boss won’t join issues with Fayose over Ondo cap incident.
Adisa was reacting to Fayose’s accusation of Gov Seyi Makinde and Chief Bode George as the people behind the assault on him at the party’s campaign rally for the Ondo State governorship election on Thursday.
Fayose had through his media aide, Lere Olayinka accused the duo that they were the people behind his boss humiliation when he was making his way to the podium at the campaign ground.
He alleged that hoodlum, ostensibly acted on instruction of Makinde and Chief Bode George to remove Fayose’s cap.
Olayinka further said that despite the shameful act, his boss won’t stop saying the truth concerning the running of the party in the Southwest zone and those who have failed to produce any result in Lagos State since 1999 will be made to retire.
He said Fayose will make formal report of the incidence to the security agencies and the party relevant authorities, noting that it was not something to be handled with levity as security agencies will have to unravel all the thugs brought to the event and their sponsors.
“That’s how late Chief Bola Ige’s cap was removed in Ile Ife, Osun State then and we all know what happened later.
“So this one will not be ignored and treated as one of those things.
“The masterminds had it all planned and they followed it up by celebrating what they saw as the success of their plot. They even capped it up by circulating the video.
“So it was not an accident, it was planned. But those who planned it only succeeded in advertising their political myopism because popularity of the brand Ayo Fayose, Osokomole cannot be rubbished by such childish act. That they must have seen in the reaction of the people at the rally and I am sure they know that they can’t get such loud ovation even if they spend all the money in this world.”
“As for me, I am unperturbed and I must say it clearly that those new comers to the PDP and their old allies, who won’t mind soiling the image of the party to achieve their aims will not be allowed to succeed,” he said.
Reacting to the statement, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde said that his boss does not intend to join issues with the former governor whom he said appears perpetually desirous of hugging the limelight even when the occasion doesn’t desire such grandstanding.
“I believe that ex-governor Fayose and his handlers need to look far away from Oyo state in search of their enemies.
“Governor Makinde has no link whatsoever with the incident Fayose’s aide was talking about.
“We expect all right- thinking members of the PDP to join the Governor of Oyo State in the prosecution of the noble and democratic assignment he is executing on behalf of the PDP in Ondo State at this time, instead of seeking to distract him one way or the other.
“The governor will, however, not be distracted either on the task at hand or on the well- intentioned desire to join other leaders to rebuild the PDP in the South West geopolitical zone.”
In another reaction made available to Mouthpiece NGR, Chairman, Oyo State Transport Company, Dare Adeleke described Ex-Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose as a disdainful and dellusional liar.
According to Adeleke, Fayose is a confusionist and is obviously seeking for attention from his benefactor in the APC. He should go and settle his scores with whosoever he’s having issues.
“Did you see the video? If you did, you will notice that Fayose positioned himself in such a situation that the cap could be easily removed by someone planted in the crowd. The man who took his cap is known to Fayose. Ayo Fayose is known for staging such notorious, dramatic false scenarios. Can we easily forget how he cried like a baby and put on a neck bracelet when it was obvious he was losing the election in Ekiti, shouting that he was attacked by the police? The man is totally shameless.”
“He is definitely seeking for favor from his paymasters in APC. You can also see another video where he was pleading for forgiveness from whoever he may have offended. These two events happened on the same day. If indeed he was attacked by people allegedly sent by Gov Seyi Makinde and Chief Bode George, were they the ones he was begging to forgive him?” Adeleke questions.
Continuing, the Pacesetters boss insists that Fayose orchestrated his own humiliation:
“Suddenly his toothless bull dog Lere Olayinka began barking, on orders of his thug of a master, that it was Gov Makinde and Chief Bode George that are behind his orchestrated assault. You see, Chief Bode George and Gov Seyi Makinde are too refined and dignified to participate in such a disgraceful affair. It is Fayose who goes into the gutter to bathe in filth all the time. Nigerians already know him for that. He is regarded with scorn and repulsion everywhere he goes.
His reputation as a very disrespectful and vulgar man precede him.
He can continue crying like a lost hyena, the duo of and Gov. Seyi Makinde and Chief Bode George will never stoop low to his level in the mud.”
Adeleke advised the Ex-Governor to desist from all the negative publicity he is giving himself as according to him: “Fayose is making a mockery of himself, becoming a public spectacle, a clown nobody takes seriously anymore. He is fast losing what is left of his notorious values and even his paymaster will drop him like hot coal, soon” Adeleke affirms.
He warns that Fayose is distracting the PDP from winning the Ondo State election: “We must not forget that this same Fayose said Governor Obaseki could not win in Edo but his soothsayer, Babalawo failed him”.
Continuing, Adeleke says: “It is not hidden that Fayose is a supporter of Agboola Ajayi and the APC. Since he is claiming he was assaulted, he should be the one to report himself to the security agents.
Ayo Fayose should stop maligning the star of the South West and the new face of futuristic Nigeria, Engr Seyi Makinde, a man he can never measure up to.”
