Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose says there is more than meets the eyes when it comes to the issue of Governor Seyi Makinde and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West.
Fayose who was a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today was of the opinion that while Governor Makinde looks quiet, he is deadly.
The former Ekiti state governor’s comment was in reaction to a viral video that showed some thugs threatening to kill him (Fayose) if he attends the PDP congress which recently held in Osun State.
According to Fayose, the thugs who were making the threats were associated with Governor Makinde of Oyo State.
“I have seen this video, what this gentleman was saying at the time, they came to the venue saying we are waiting for you here, we are going to kill you.
“This is the chairman of the road transport workers in Oyo State, this people came with Governor Makinde’s convoy… Everybody knows.
“This is enough to show the whole world if Governor Makinde, a first-time 2-year old governor, yet to be 2-year-old governor is parading characters like this, it simply shows the kind of people behind him,” the former governor stated.
When confronted with the fact that the video also shows the character and quality of the people in the PDP, Fayose said it is shameful, stressing that thuggery is disgraceful for the party.
Fayose further alleged that the same thugs recently came to attack him in Ondo State. “These same people came to Ondo and I told Governor Makinde, so I am glad the whole world is seeing this, Governor Makinde you look quiet but deadly” the former governor asserted.
Speaking further, Fayose said the thugs being paraded were over a thousand, adding that their threats made him make up his mind to attend the South-West Congress regardless of the consequences.
The former Ekiti State governor who noted that the thugs fled upon his arrival, said such a development is not right for Nigeria and the PDP, adding that such is condemnable.
