Former governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose has reacted to the removal of his cap while he was at the campaign rally held by the People’s Democratic Party in Info State yesternight, October 7.
Reports have it that Fayose was on his way to the rally round when thugs accosted him and removed the cap he was wearing and tried to pounce on him.
Fayose has however, reacted to the incident in a statement released by his spokesperson, Leke Olayinka.
In the statement, he alleged that the thugs were set by the Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde and the ex-PDP Deputy National Chairman, Bode George.
The statement reads;
“That’s how late Chief Bola Ige’s cap was removed in Ile Ife, Osun State and we all know what happened later. This one will not be ignored and treated as one of those things. The masterminds had it all planned and they followed it up by celebrating what they saw as the success of their plot. They even capped it up by circulating the video.
“It was not an accident. Those who planned it only succeeded in advertising their political myopism because popularity of the brand Ayo Fayose, Osokomole, cannot be rubbished by such childish act. They must have seen the reaction of the people at the rally. They know that they can’t get such loud ovation even if they spend all the money in this world.
“As for me, I am unperturbed and I must say it clearly that those new comers to the PDP and their old allies, who won’t mind soiling the image of the party to achieve their aims, will not be allowed to succeed.”
