The Oasis Reporters

In football parlance, a shot can ricochet off the goal post. At the moment, let me say some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have started playing off target shots with the belief that the former Minister of Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro will furnish them with the information that will put an end to the political influence or annihilate the solid structure of Gov. Peter Ayodele Fayose.
The belief of the average APC faithful in the state is that once Fayose is prevented from using his popularity and general acceptability amongst the Ekiti electorate to influence the choice of his deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola-Eleka who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in July 14 election that all will be over for him.
They thought Obanikoro played a key role in the election that ushered Fayose in as 4governor in 2014.
At this juncture, permit me to say that only a fool will say that Fayose rigged 2014 election because the election was so credible to the extent that Dr. Kayode Fayemi who was defeated in all the sixteen local government areas accepted defeat and congratulated the winner before he was advised by ‘bad belle’, greedy and uncivilized politicians within his party to withdraw his congratulatory message.
They forgot to remember the bitter complaints of the civil servants, teachers, students, local government workers about the evil government of Dr. Kayode Fayemi a year before the election.
Let me say that our brothers in APC should stop boasting that 2018 Ekiti election will be rigged in favour of their party.
Every right thinking member of the APC knows it will be hazardous for a state that has enjoyed relative peace since 2014 to be hijacked by the people who commissioned uncompleted projects in the state.
Ekiti people cannot continue to be deceived by the fake Obama’s friend who plunged the state into debt. The earlier Fayemi and his cohorts accept the fact that power of the people is greater than those in power, the better for them.
