Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has described Jimoh Ibrahim of the Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a “spoiler” and “agent of destabilisation” who has been sent to disrupt the peace of the people of Ondo state.
Governor Fayose, who spoke during a political programme on Orange FM, in Akure, on Tuesday, disclosed that he never knew Jimoh Ibrahim to be a member of the PDP.
“I want my people in Ondo State to stand by Jegede, they should not be distracted. I believe justice will prevail. This is a fight against democracy.
“I don’t know Jimoh Ibrahim, he is not a member of the PDP, he is a spoiler, I don’t know how Jimoh Ibrahim will rule Ondo State. Justice will prevail on Jegede, there will definitely be light at the end of the tunnel. I know it is going to be praises for Jegede and the people of the state at the end of the day.”
“God hates agents of destabilisation and it is very unfortunate that Jimoh Ibrahim is into this,” Fayose added.
It would be recalled that the announcement of Jimoh Ibrahim as governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo has led to an upheaval in the state’s political scene, including the recent protest in Akure which followed INEC’s failure recognise Eyitayo Jegede as governorship candidate of the PDP.
