PDP faults Fayemi over concession speech

News » Politics


The Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State has criticised Governor Kayode Fayemi for reportedly denying to have conceded victory to its candidate in the June 21 governorship election, Mr. Ayo Fayose.

In a statement made available to jorunalists in Ado-Ekiti, the state PDP’s Publicity Secretary, Kola Oluwawole, said Fayemi’s “sudden reversal of his concession” showed the political inconsistency of his party, the All Progressives Congress.

Oluwawole said the voters   “disgraceful humiliation of the APC” was responsible for his earlier concession of defeat, adding that the PDP never took the governor serious when he accepted defeat.

According to him, Fayemi’s claims that he made the statement then in order to save Ekiti from blood spilling is the demonstration of his garrulous arrogance because he knew that nobody would have raised a finger even if he was rigged out.

“The double talk of the outgoing governor is a symptom of wild frustration hence, it took Fayemi a month to wake up from the other side of the bed to insult the intelligence of Ekiti people by saying that has not said he conceded defeat.”

“How do you describe Fayemi who congratulated a person who defeated him in an election that was adjudged to be free fair and peaceful by both Nigerian and International communities to come out after a month to change gear and be saying the opposite,” the party asked.
