Ekiti state governor Ayodele Fayose says he is not bothered by the defection of former Minister of State for Works Dayo Adeyeye from the PDP to APC.
The former spokesman of the PDP announced his defection and those of his supporters to the APC on Tuesday.
Adeyeye believes he lost the primary of the party to the Deputy Governor of Ekiti state, Prof. Kolapo Olusola-Eleka due to Fayose’s ”undue advantage to Olusola-Eleka.”
But Fayose said Adeyeye’s defection confirmed his earlier position that he was never a loyal to the PDP.
“I am not bothered by the action taken by the former aspirant in the just-concluded PDP governorship primary election in the state,” he said in a statement.
“His move to APC will not in any way affect us. This is because majority of those he thought were behind him did not defect with him.
“In fact, one of his two party agents for the last primary is still with us in PDP and you know what that means.”
He further said, “If somebody is your party agent and could not go with you to another party it tells a lot and even as he is moving from PDP, many others from APC are coming to us, so we have nothing to lose with his defection.”
