On Monday, reports of Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose’s plans to exit the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) filled the news space and speculations that he may be joining the ruling party, APC followed.
Reacting to the speculations, Ekiti Chairman of APC, Paul Omotoso said that Fayose was “not wanted in the party” but it appears the governor never had such plans.
In a statement released on Tuesday, Fayose replied, “APC my foot! I will never have anything to do with APC.

I will never, ever, go to APC and will never ever have anything to do with the party,” he swore.
