ONDO STATE – Immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has accused the Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde and former Deputy National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George of masterminding the assault on him at the party’s campaign rally for the Ondo State governorship election in Ondo town on Wednesday, October 7, 2020.
Fayose was making his way to the podium at the campaign ground when a hoodlum, ostensibly acting on instruction, moved towards him and removed Fayose’s cap.
Reacting through his Media Aide, Lere Olayinka, the former governor said despite the shameful act, he won’t stop saying the truth concerning the running of the party in the South West zone, and that those who have failed to produce any result in Lagos State since 1999 will be made to retire.
Fayose said he will make formal report of the incidence to the security agencies and the party relevant authorities, noting that it was not something to be handled with levity as security agencies will have to unravel all the thugs brought to the event and their sponsors.
