The All Progressives Congress (APC) has stated that Governor Ayo Fayose joining the ruling party will not stop his prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The Governor had on Monday threatened to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over what he described as an attempt by some people to take over the structure of the party and sideline those who have been toiling to keep the party together.
Reacting in a statement, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC warned that Fayose will be making a grave mistake if he thinks defecting to the ruling party will shield him from prosecution if found guilty.
The statement read: “Nigerians know that this is a progressive party. No matter what, if found guilty, he will be dealt with according to the dictates of the law.
“It is wishful thinking for anyone to believe that joining APC will shield him from prosecution if found guilty. Whether he likes he can join APC, SDP or any other political party, the law will take its course.
“It is only under APC government that high ranking people have gone to jail
“So, if Fayose likes let him come, the law will still catch up with him if found guilty. Tell Nigerians and the world, that even if Fayose comes to APC, the law will catch up with him if found guilty.”
