    APC, PDP clash over Fayose’s alleged support for proxy

    THE South West Zonal Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Karounwi Oladapo, has accused former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, of seeking to contest the Ekiti 2022 governorship race by proxy.

    Oladapo said the emergence of the Ekiti State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bisi Kolawole, as an aspirant for the 2022 governorship election, was proof of Fayose’s aspirations.

    Fayose, while endorsing Kolawole, described him as his ‘anointed’ candidate for the PDP ticket.

    The APC in a statement titled, ‘Ekiti 2022 from the prism of the opposition party, PDP: Only three aspirants are contenders while others are pretenders’, which was signed by Oladapo, said, “The person (candidate) will become the commander and controller of Ekiti PDP.

    “The person will be using the PDP structures to negotiate for survival and relevance within the PDP hierarchy and remain as opposition leader in Ekiti State. This is because PDP and its candidate cannot withstand APC in the 2022 gubernatorial elections for a number of reasons.

    “As of today, May 2, 2021, if the PDP primary election is to be conducted, Fayose/Bisi Kolawole will beat Senator Biodun Olujimi to a second position and Segun Oni to a distant third position.

    “However, as politics is dynamic and volatile, things keep changing rapidly in politics, the equation may change in the days ahead, provided Fayose sleeps behind the wheel, should that happen, Olujimi, may spring a surprise.”

    In response, the Director of Media and Publicity, Bisi Kolawole Campaign Organisation, Lere Olayinka, said, “The APC should face their party and their failed government.

    “People are being killed, people are being kidnapped everywhere, their concern is who is campaigning by proxy. If contesting by proxy is what will bring peace to Ekiti, what is wrong with that?

    Olayinka, who noted that none of the campaign posters or billboards showed that Fayose was contesting, said, “Our aspirants are sure that they would become governor of the state by picking the PDP ticket.

    “In APC, are they even settled to contest? “Who is contesting under APC? Nobody, because they know that they cannot win election again.”
