“Dumping PDP For APC Won’t Shield You From Prosecution” – APC To Fayose
The ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the proposed defection of Governor Ayo Fayose to APC and warned that such defection cannot and will not shield the incumbent governor of Ekiti state from prosecution if found culpable by the courts.
In a reaction to Fayose’s statement that he might soon quit the PDP, Yekini Nabena, the APC’s National Publicity Secretary, said the outgoing governor of Ekiti State will be making a grave mistake if he thinks defecting to the ruling party will shield him from prosecution if found guilty.
“Nigerians know that this is a progressive party. No matter what, if found guilty, he will be dealt with according to the dictates of the law.
“It is wishful thinking for anyone to believe that joining APC will shield him from prosecution if found guilty. Whether he likes he can join APC, SDP or any other political party, the law will take its course. It is only under APC government that high ranking people have gone to jail.
“So, if Fayose likes let him come, the law will still catch up with him if found guilty. Tell Nigerians and the world, that even if Fayose comes to APC, the law will catch up with him if found guilty,” he said.
