Ekiti State Governor, Chief Ayodele  Fayose has told former Governor Kayode Fayemi not to celebrate yet as his victory at the governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress held on Saturday is Pyrrhic victory.

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, Fayose said Fayemi’s victory has only positioned the Minister for Solid Minerals Development to suffer a worse and more debilitating defeat than that of 2014.

He said, “In 2014 when he was the sitting governor and I was not in power, I trounced him mercilessly. I gave him 16 – 0, defeating him in all the local governments, including in his hometown. He did not win a single local government.

“Now, I have been in power for more than three years and have served the people of Ekiti well. My legacy projects are there to speak for me, and for my party the PDP, as well as for our candidate in the July 14 governorship election, Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka.

“Fayemi will suffer the worst defeat of his political career. After the July 14 election, he will go into political oblivion.

“He has nothing to celebrate because of the electoral disaster awaiting him. The manner of his so-called victory also leaves much to be desired as it has turned many of their party leaders and followers against him”, he added.

“Fayemi’s victory has made the condition of APC worse in Ekiti. The party leaders and members know that Fayemi has no use for any of them beyond the July 14 election”
