Buhari’s Visit: Fayose Alleges Plot by APC To Cause Crisis, Declares Tuesday Public Holiday
The Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has alleged that members of the All Progressives Congress(APC) are planning to invade the state, hiding under the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari, to cause crisis.
President Buhari is billed to visit the state Tuesday to campaign for Dr Kayode Fayemi, the APC governorship candidate in Saturday’s gubernatorial election. The governor has therefore declared today (Tuesday) a public holiday in a state broadcast at about 11pm on Monday.
“I want all shops and market centres closed for Tuesday. I want my workers, I mean civil servants and school teachers to stay at home. You must stay in door. This also affects Okada riders and commercial drivers.
“You know I love you, I don’t want to bury anybody because the APC is planning to invade Ekiti like military and take over everywhere.
“Some of their chieftains have imported thugs into Ekiti. They are being lodged in some hotels and I am using this opportunity to call on security agencies to be alive to their responsibilities.”
