Former Governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni, has disclosed that us is considering leaving the All Progressives Congress, APC, however this will happen only on one condition.
This is coming from Oni despite having declared support for the winner of the Ekiti APC Gubernatorial Primary, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on Saturday, May 12, 2018. Oni lost the election to Fayemi.
Recall that Fayemi won the election by 941 votes to Oni’s 481 to emerge the party’s candidate in the July 2018 governorship race in the state.
But Oni said he has heard reports of attacks on his political supporters and threats of further attacks on them should Fayemi emerge governor.
He said this may make him dump the APC, while insisting that the welfare of his supporters remain paramount in his heart.
Oni, a Deputy National Chairman of APC, said, “Our people must learn a new lesson that when you enjoy goodwill, and you lose a primary, the next thing is for you to move to another party, thinking that you will win,”
“We are approaching a windstorm, which is the election and I believe we need to take caution on both sides. As much as we are ready to work with the winner, they too must be receptive and be trusting.
