Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has stated that only politicians driven by covetousness would leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He stated this while speaking on Sunday during an appearance on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme.
He made this comment when asked if the PDP is falling apart, considering the defection of Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi and the rumours of Femi Fani-Kayode leaving the party.
Fayose said: “May I say this to you, very clearly. In the book of James one from verse four. The Bible says a man is taken away in his own covetousness. Anyone who leaves PDP for APC at this time must be taken away by his own covetousness.”
On the purported defection of Fani-Kayode, the former governor said FFK is going nowhere, adding that the purported defection is not true as he has spoken to him several times.
“I know FFK is going nowhere. What they are saying is not true. I have spoken to FFK about six times. What they are saying is not true. I’m 100 percent sure,” he said.
On whether he can defect to the APC, he said the APC cannot offer him anything, as his party gave him the opportunity to become governor when he was 42 years old.
