Chieftain, Pastor Yemi Olayinka, has defected to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
Olayinka who joined the APC at Ado Ekiti Ward 8 Thursday evening said Ekiti is now reeling under a one-man dictatorship which has made governance to grind to a halt and inflicted hardship on the masses through “anti-people policies.”
He described PDP as a “dead party that is already waiting for its final funeral” owing to the alleged autocratic leadership style of Fayose.
According to him, the governor’s leadership style has forced prominent members of the PDP including foundation members to leave the party and portrayed it in bad light before the people of the state. He continued by saying;
“I can’t afford to stay in a party that is being controlled by a power-greedy individual. I am a team player and I believe in the ethos of democracy, so we are leaving the PDP for Fayose all alone”.
