The former Governor of Ekiti State, Chief Segun Oni, says he is upbeat that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will be fatally defeated in 2022 governorship poll.
Oni stated Fayemi lost to Ayodele Fayose in 2014 on account of alleged conceitedness displayed by means of APC in opposition to Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, who left the party to contest for governorship on the platform of Labour Party.
Oni stated the identical culture of conceitedness was once allegedly exhibited in opposition to him, which he stated pushed him to return to the People’s Democratic Party(PDP), opposite to APC’s role that he did that for selfish interest.
Oni stated this in a declaration in Ado Ekiti by means of the Director-General of his political organisation, Atunse Ekiti Movement , Dr. Ife Arowosoge, on Friday.
Oni was once reacting to a announcement allegedly credited to APC State Chairman, Paul Omotoso that the ex-governor was once considered as a nominal member at some stage in his remain in the party.
Responding to this, Oni stated that uncouth utterance similarly proven the APC’s recklessness, lawlessness and push aside for perceived enemies.
“Was it terrific for Paul Omotoso to have described Oni, a former Governor, a basis member of APC and the very first Deputy National Chairman, who usually stood in as Acting National Chairman every time the Chairman used to be no longer around as a nominal member of APC?”.
Oni questioned why Omotoso should accuse him of now not being impactful as a Deputy National Chairman by way of now not supporting human beings with contracts and appointments, pronouncing the strength of the workplace as spelt out in Article 14 (2) of the Constitution of APC does now not consist of the award of contracts or lobbying for appointments.
“The identical pomposity used to be confirmed when Senator Bamidele was once pressured out of ACN in 2013 and what was once the end result of the Fayemi’s 2014 governorship election? It was once calamitous, disgraceful and shameful main to 16-0 loss. The identical episode will repeat itself in 2022”, he bowed.
Oni stated he determined to depart APC owing to Fayemi’s perceived enmity in opposition to his political followers and now not for egocentric pursuit.
“The nepotism and clannishness witnessed in government’s appointments into federal and state positions, the inhuman cure meted out to all Atunse Ekiti members and all humans linked to Oni, the reality that due system was once no longer observed in organising celebration executives by using now not conducting congresses at the ward , Local government and state tiers compelled us out of APC.
“Added to that was once the truth that appointments to Government positions each at the Federal State and Local Government degrees have been restricted to the household individuals of Governor Fayemi and no member of Atunse Ekiti Movement had been now not viewed for any appointment, both at the Federal, State or Local Government level.
“Again, many individuals of Atunse Ekiti Movement are being threatened with expulsion and suspension and many had been suspended for phantom anti party things to do was once accountable for why I left and now not what Omotoso said”.
Oni cited that no quantity of blackmail would make him waver on his get to the bottom of to restoration sanity to Ekiti in 2022, via becoming a member of hands with the residents to set up a governor they can trust.
