APC warns troublemakers over plot to disrupt Peace in Ekiti State
The All Progressives Congress, (APC) in Ekiti state has unearthed attempts by some disgruntled and rejected politicians in the state to cause havoc during the celebration of the annual Udiroko festival in Ado Ekiti this week.
The politicians, according to information at its disposal, had failed to garner the people’s support through the ballot and are now trying to achieve this through the back door.
In a statement by the Director of Media and Publicity of the party, Elder Sam Oluwalana, it stated that part of their antics is to hide under the celebration of the annual festival to cause crisis.
According to him, all these are in an attempt to portray the present administration of Dr Kayode Fayemi of not doing enough to protect the people.
“We have it on good authority that a former governor of the state wants to hide under the Udiroko festival to attempt to launch himself back into the politics of the state having failed woefully to achieve this through the ballot.
” The former governor and his cohorts having been traumatized by the gale of unprecedented achievements of the present administration of Dr Kayode Fayemi, are now attempting to make a return to the politics of the state through the back door.
“He is aware that his antics while in the saddle for four years during which he selfishly allocated the wealth of the state to himself and immediate family have been exposed.
” We are aware that some of those that served under him are raining curses on the former governor for depriving them of their entitlements while he was laughing to the bank every month to lodge his loots.”
Elder Oluwalana, who doubles as SSA Media ( Party Matters) to Governor Fayemi, reminded the people of the state of the four years of trauma and suffering under the immediate past administration due to non payment of salaries and Retirees benefits thus pauperising them.
He also advised them not to allow themselves to be used by these political marabouts in their quest to portray themselves as friends of the masses.
The party scribe equally said that security agents have been alerted and have been mobilized to ensure a peaceful celebration of Udiroko festival warning that, any attempt by a person or groups to foment trouble will be promptly dealt with.
“The present administration has a synergy with various arms of security agents to deal with trouble makers no matter their status and the law will be allowed to take its course”. the statement warned.
