PDP To APC: You Can’t Compel Fayose To Declare Assets

The Ekiti State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of playing to the gallery by asking Governor Ayo Fayose to publicly declare his assets like his predecessor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.


The PDP maintained that the APC lacks the moral justification to upbraid Fayose for not making his assets public when many of the governors elected on its (APC) platform had not done so.

The party in a statement issued on Wednesday by its Publicity Secretary, Jackson Adebayo, maintained that APC cannot compel Fayose to release details of his assets because the opposition has an ulterior motive by making such demand.

Rather than calling on Fayose to make public his assets declaration, the PDP urged the APC to direct the call to about 23 governors elected on its platform to do so before demanding for that from the Ekiti governor.

The PDP said until the APC does this, it would remain in “the wilderness of foolishness” as “a party peopled by intelligent persons should know that you can only ask question on what you are not guilty of.”

While criticizing the APC for celebrating the assets declaration by President Muhammadu Buhari, the PDP claimed that the declaration by the President “contained many loopholes which no sensible person should be proud of.”

“The declaration made by Buhari cannot be compared to that made by the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua which till date has been adjudged as a perfect declaration by any Nigerian President,” the party stated.
