The Senior Special Assistant to Ekiti State Governor on Public Communications, Segun Dipe, has advised the immediate past governor of the State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose to face his nemesis alone instead of dragging people along and blaming them for his woes.
Dipe was reacting to the allegation of the Media to Mr. Fayose, Lere Olayinka that some miscreants invaded Emmanuel Cathedral Church, Ado Ekiti and booed Fayose during the wedding ceremony of the daughter of Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe on Saturday.
Olayinka had alleged that the miscreants were calling Fayose unprintable names, but Dipe said it was preposterous of Olayinka to have made such spurious and unsubstantiated allegation against the ruling party, knowing all the atrocities his principal committed before leaving and that the people he had offended could naturally not wait to have their pounds of flesh on him.
“According to Dipe, Fayose lived as if there was no tomorrow, he reigned as if there was no expiry date to his regime. He trampled on the rights of the people, treating them like slaves in their own land.
“Our findings about the unfortunate fate that befell the former governor is that he was indeed booed, but by those he had offended within his own party, the PDP, who felt bruised and pained about the way he enslaved them within their own party.”
“Fayose is the architect of his own misfortune. He will be living in a fool’s paradise to think the people will forget all his sins too quickly. He is now being haunted by his past misdeeds. Or has he forgotten what he did to them in Ado? How he was disrespectful to the Ewi, how he was demolishing ancestral homes, how he seized lands and properties and converted them to personal use?
“Fayose as his own enemy, should not accuse anyone of goading those he offended before they would think of having their pound of flesh on him, is to be taking the people for a ride.”
“My sincere and brotherly advice to our immediate past governor is to do the needful, by tendering an unreserved apology to all those he offended, and they are legion. It is only then that he would no longer be haunted by ghosts.”
