Ayodele Fayose, Ekiti state former governor has accused Oyo State governor,Engr. Seyi Makinde and a chieftain of the PDP, Bode George as master-minders of his assault in Ondo PDP rally on Wednesday.
Fayose was making his way to the podium at the campaign ground when a hoodlum, ostensibly acting on instruction, moved towards him and removed his cap.
The former governor said despite the shameful act, he won’t stop saying the truth concerning the running of the party in the Southwest zone adding that ” those who have failed to produce any result in Lagos State since 1999 will be made to retire”.
He vowed to make formal report to the security agencies noting that same issue happened to the late Bola Ige and he was later killed.
“That’s how late Chief Bola Ige’s cap was removed in Ile Ife, Osun State then and we all know what happened later.
“So 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.
“So it was not an accident, it was planned. But 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. That they must have seen in the reaction of the people at the rally and I am sure 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,” he said.
