Anyone Who Leaves PDP For APC Is Driven By Greed — Fayose

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose said that anyone who leaves the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) is driven by greed.

Fayose stated this on Channels TV on Sunday while reacting to the rumours of prominent PDP members leaving the party for the APC.

Making reference to the book of James one from verse four in the Bible, Fayose said anyone that leaves PDP for APC is taken away by covetousness.

“May I say this to you, very clearly. In the book of James one from verse four. The Bible says a man is taken away in his own covetousness. Anyone who leaves PDP for APC at this time must be taken away by his own covetousness,” he said.

When asked whether he can defect to the APC, Fayose said the ruling party cannot offer him anything, as his party gave him the opportunity to become governor when he was 42 years old.

“I’m over 60. What do I want to become? I was governor at 42. All the opportunities anybody could offer, PDP offered me,” Fayose said.

“I will not go to APC. What is missing? Some people choose to be dishonourable. Not me. I will rather go and be the husband of my wife, Feyisetan Fayose, and my son.”

On the purported defection of Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, Fayose said that the rumours are not true as he has spoken to the former minister several times and confirmed that the he is going nowhere.

“I know FFK is going nowhere. What they are saying is not true. I have spoken to FFK about six times. What they are saying is not true. I’m 100 percent sure,” the former governor said.

There have been strong indications that Fani-Kayode will return to the ruling APC, six years after he left for the PDP.

Last Sunday, Fani-Kayode held a secret meeting with the APC Caretaker, Governor Mai Mala Buni, and Governor Yahaya Bello, at the Guest House in Abuja.

On Wednesday, Governor Bello announced that Fani-Kayode has joined the APC.
