The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has told a former governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose that he cannot join the party because of his antecedents.
The party in a statement issued by its State Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi said the party is not a dumping ground for politicians like the former governor.
“We will not welcome him to the great and decent family in the state.
“It is better he stays back in his PDP to get it more destroyed instead of coming to a principled, disciplined, transparent, law-abiding and organised party like the APC.
“The Ekiti APC members know the people behind the masquerade and thereby warn people like Fayose not to turn the APC to a dumping ground where they can defect to” the statement said.
Fayose has reportedly said he will dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC if his candidate for the state Chairman fails to clinch the position.
