In response to a statement credited to the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) factional governorship candidate in Ondo State, Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim can never be governor of the state, Ibrahim has described Fayose as a governor who speaks after taking a strange coffee or illcit gin popularly called ogogoro.

He said Fayose made same statements during the presidential election where he predicted that President Muhammadu Buhari would never be president, yet Buhari was already in his second year as president of the country.

“Since Fayose has predicted that I will not be governor as he did to President Buhari, it simply means he will be invited to attend my inauguration,” he said.

According to Ibrahim, the crisis in the Ondo State PDP has not degenerated to a situation where a judge was beaten up in court during proceedings as it was in Ekiti State during Fayose’s bid to become governor, adding that there was no need for the governor to panic at this time as it was too early to do so.

“Fayose is advised to wait till November 27 after the election in Ondo State, as we shall move to Ekiti in full force to enforce Justice Abang’s judgment, which also cover the executive of PDP in Ekiti State. Our movement to Ekiti State will be in daytime so it is better for Fayose to prepare and learn from experience of Governor Mimiko who was performing in Ondo State until he was distracted by Fayose.

“Let me remind Fayose that I am not Kayode Fayemi and it is now a payback time to treat Fayose exactly the way he treated Fayemi using the framework of how the clustering disaster we resolved in Ekiti State led to Fayose’s victory,” Ibrahim said.
