The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has described Governor Ayo Fayose as a hypocrite.
The APC, in a statement, by the media aide of the House of Assembly Speaker, Wole Olujobi, said: “We can now see the cowardly act of a hypocrite who has made impunity a religion in governance and is now afraid of alleged impunity by APC. He wants to do unto others what he would not want to be done unto him!
“A man who wants peace is calling the opposition “irritants”. What a way of seeking reconciliation! Whatever issue Fayose is having with the opposition will be resolved by the law. All this grand standing and rhetoric will not save him from facing the law.
“The governor’s press briefing is nothing but a reversal of hope for the resolution of Ekiti crisis. Some people have expressed worry over the quality of his advisers. But the truth is that Fayose has no adviser. In fact, he hates advisers and so he does not take advice. He takes no one’s advice and those who know him well dare not advise him.
“Fayose has zero tolerance for other people’s opinion. Like Fayose’s former leaders, Baba Ojo Falegan and Evangelist Bamidele Olumilua, once said Fayose believes he is the wisest man on earth.
“There is no suggestion being made today on the resolution of Ekiti crisis that had not been offered in the last few weeks but Fayose would not tolerate that.
“His press conference would convince all that he has a heart of steel and all those Ekiti elders who have been meeting trying to reconcile the two groups are just wasting their time.
“Fayose has agenda that is known only to himself and so whatever effort that is being made to resolve the crisis is just an exercise in futility, if such effort threatens his agenda. He is not known for compromise and there is nothing anybody can do about it.”
