Jonathan Barks at Ekiti APC lawmakers, asks Buhari to call them to order

President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday called on the President Elect, Mohammadu Buahri to caution
his members in All Progressives Congress in Ekiti state. He did not do this direct but a cabinet member did.
Minister of State for Works, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, who appears speaking the mind of Jonathan has asked the President-elect, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) to caution the All Progressives Congress members in Ekiti State lest they truncate democracy in the country.
The minister, who described the APC desperation to seize power in Ekiti State through the backdoor as a dangerous trend, added that the APC members in the state House of Assembly had been capitalising on Buhari’s victory in the March 28 poll to cause crisis in the state.
Adeyeye said in a statement on Tuesday that the APC should stop behaving like a party of bad losers.
He said, “In 1999, Prof. Tunde Adeniran of the PDP lost to Otunba Niyi Adebayo, Adeniran congratulated the winner. He did not go to court. It was in 2003 that Adebayo lost to Governor Ayodele Fayose that they went to the tribunal.
“Also, when Segun Oni won the election in 2007, these same APC people made Ekiti ungovernable for him.
“In 2011 when Fayose contested senatorial election and lost to Senator Babafemi Ojudu, he did not go to court. None of the PDP National Assembly candidates that lost in 2011 went to court.
“Since they lost the governorship to the PDP nine months ago, they have refused to accept defeat. It was as a result of this desperation to steal Ekiti people’s mandate that Chief Omolafe Aderiye was killed.
“Today (Tuesday) again, they killed Modupe Temitope Olaiya in Efon-Alaaye and one wonders why these APC people derive joy in shedding blood of innocent Ekiti sons and daughters. Why must there be crisis in Ekiti each time the APC elements lose power to the PDP?”
“General Buhari must not let these desperate APC members in Ekiti State drag his name and reputation in the mud by using his name to cause chaos in Ekiti,”the minister added.
