As the members of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Ekiti State are still happy to see their political hook freely catching some irate members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP ahead of July 14 election, I want to quickly pass a message across to our APC friends in Ido/ Osi Local Government not to be too elated on the defection of a successful businessman but a political failure from Ido- Ekiti who just moved to the APC.
Mr. Cyril Fasuyi is one of the blessed citizens of Ido – Ekiti and one of the philanthropists in the entire Ido/Osi LG who is loved by many, but I must say the uncontrollable ego of the Ido born politician is a factor in his unsuccessful political career.
Mr. Cyril Fasuyi came to limelight during the tenure of Engr. Segun Oni.Then, he was appointed as Director General of the State Microcredit Scheme.
As DG of Ekiti Microcredit, loans were given to people but I cannot say precisely whether those who collected the loans were able to return the money. I can say it expressly that he failed his first political probation. He needs to look for a good man of God to break the yoke preventing his political progression.
Mr. Cyril has been making efforts to become a member of the National Assembly since Segun Oni was booted out in 2010.
He was the PDP candidate for the House of Representatives in Ekiti North Federal Constituency II but he lost the election due to an explainable reason. He was voted for by the people of Ido/Osi but his own people at Ido-Ekiti were responsible for his failure in 2011. Therefore, I don’t understand the reason behind his latest boast that he will get 27,000 votes from Ido town for his new political party. That to me is an empty and silly boast.
In 2015, Mr. Cyril Fasuyi attempted to vie for the position he jostled for in 2011 but my kinsman, Chief Thaddeus Akinola Aina was favoured and that made him declare a political war with Gov. Peter Ayodele Fayose.
Mr. Cyril Fasuyi filed a court case against Chief Aina from the Election Tribunal to the Apex Court but all glory unto God as Chief Aina disgraced him at the Supreme Court.
He supported the wounded governorship aspirant, Prince Dayo Adeyeye who was well defeated by the erudite, loyal and humble deputy governor of Ekiti State, Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka during the PDP gubernatorial primaries in the state. It is noteworthy that despite Cyril’s unwavering support for Adeyeye, Prof. Eleka floored them all in the keenly contested election.
Cyril Fasuyi as a new member of the APC will soon be at loggerhead with the leadership of the party in Ido/Osi LG. He is too desperate and he can do anything to get to the top.
He followed Adeyeye to the APC with the aim of using the platform to destroy the well established structure of Gov. Ayodele Fayose in Ekiti.
Cyril Fasuyi and Prince Adeyeye forgot that Engr. Segun Oni who is more versatile, loved, rooted and famous than them left Ayo Fayose for Kayode Fayemi in 2014 and yet Fayose won the election in all the sixteen local government areas of the state.
On a final note, let me intimate our brothers on the other side who are celebrating the arrival of Mr. Cyril Fasuyi.
in their camp that he is not a threat and his defection to the APC won’t stop PDP and Eleka from recording another victory in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the fountain of knowledge.
