The All Progressives Congress, APC is not plotting to frustrate the inauguration of governor-elect of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose.
Speaking on behalf of the APC, senator representing Ekiti Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Babafemi Ojudu, on Wednesday said there is no iota of truth in the allegations by the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State that the APC was planning to frustrate the inauguration of Governor Fayose.
Fayose was elected governor in the 21 June governorship election in Ekiti and he is scheduled to be sworn-in on 16 October.
Ojudu, a veteran journalist while speaking in Abuja on Wednesday said: “It is not true that the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State is plotting to frustrate the inauguration of Fayose on 16 October, what APC had done is to go to the tribunal to challenge the election of Fayose and the court was about to sit when Fayose invaded the court with his thugs and disrupted it.”
Senator Ojudu explained that the invasion of the court by Fayose’s men informed the relocation of the tribunal outside the state.
He added: “The e-11 had gone to court since 23 May to challenge the qualification of Fayose to contest the election. But there was a strike, and the court later went on vacation; and the suit suffered some setbacks, so they are just hearing it now, why is the PDP in Ekiti blaming its misfortune on other people? It is taken that when anybody is aggrieved, the place to resolve it is the court and not through self help. The e-11 went to court, and the APC went to court.’’
