Fayose, OPC Plot To Attack Buhari, Others – APC

The All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State alleged, on Monday, that the state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has planned to ambush the convoy of its presidential candidate while on a campaign visit to the state on Saturday. In a statement by APC State Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun, in Ado-Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State, said Fayose plans to use members of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, to achieve its purported aim, as the PDP did in Rivers State.‎
Excerpt of Olatunbosun’s statement read, “They are also to strike at the campaign grounds to cause stampede. The OPC members, the party said, were engaged as task force men to be removing the posters of APC candidates and had removed Buhari’s posters pasted in his campaign office in Ado-Ekiti as well as those pasted in the party’s office in the state capital”.
The party also described as Fayose’s desperate move the publication of an  advertorial in two national dailies on Monday, in which he wished APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, dead, if elected.
“This is dangerous for our national unity and ethnic harmony. Fayose is dangerous to Nigeria’s unity and the earlier the authorities, Nigerians and Ekiti people in particular appreciate this, the better for us as a nation,” Olatubosun said.
Olatunbosun alleged that the OPC members were already in the state.
He added: “This is a clear case of undermining the peace agreement by eminent international leaders last week‎ among the nation’s political leaders. It is sad that after President Jonathan campaigned in Ekiti State, Fayose sent signage officials and OPC thugs to be removing our candidates’ posters after paying necessary fees to the agency.”
“Fayose’s hatred for Buhari knows no bounds, as his aide was behind a fake medical report on Buhari declaring him as a prostate cancer patient.
