Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti has mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) for selecting the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, as its candidate for the July 14 governorship election in the state.
In a post on his Twitter handle, the governor thanked the APC for giving Ekiti people the candidate they love to vote against.
He warned the minister not to celebrate his pyrrhic victory yet as he would be soundly defeated in the July 14 governorship election in the state.
Fayose wrote: “I thank the APC for giving Ekiti people a candidate they love to vote against at all times. Fayemi should not celebrate this pyrrhic victory yet because it is nothing but a flame that will be quenched on July 14.
“He should expect to suffer worse defeat compared to that of 2014.”
