The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, has said that the Governor-Elect of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, does not have the financial capability for vote-buying.
Speaking Channels Television’s Roadmap 2019 two months after Fayemi won the contentious poll, Mr Oshiomhole said the former minister barely saw the campaign through.
“No one can claim that Fayemi is a rich man, I know he was struggling to find money to mobilise and to sustain his campaign,” he said.
He however claimed it was the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the incumbent governor that had access to such resources.
“I do not think that APC had the kind of resources under Fayemi to resort to vote-buying,” he insisted.
“I guess it is the guy who had access to Ekiti treasury, which in this case was the PDP and then the sitting governor, who was so confident that he has all the resources.”
“He even described himself as a rock – you fall on him you will break, if he falls on you he will crush you. Now, the definition and the particulars of this rock may be in terms of the amount of naira that he thought was available,” the APC chairman alleged.
