Meanwhile the Former Minister of State for Works, Adedayo Adeyeye recently defected to APC from PDP, this Fayemi called “a big boost to the party”, “his parting ways with Fayose would help the reclamation struggle against the present governor. He also promised that Adeyeye will be given all the right a leader in APC can get, “there are no defectors in APC” he said.
Also Speaking to reporters, Adeyeye said he defected to APC because the party nominated the right type of candidate, who is highly educated and exposed, who is not crude like “our brother” he said. Further speaking, he said “as we speak today, Fayose is alone, he has no credible leader behind him, he is empty and naked and this coming election will expose his weakness”.
