The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the proposed defection of Governor Ayo Fayose and the party stated that he will not escape prosecution even if he joins the party at the expiration of his tenure.
Reacting to Fayose’s statement that he may soon quit the PDP, Yekini Nabena, APC’s National Publicity Secretary, said the outgoing governor of Ekiti State will be making a grave mistake if he thinks defecting to the ruling party will shield him from prosecution if found guilty.
“Nigerians know that this is a progressive party. No matter what, if found guilty, he will be dealt with according to the dictates of the law.
“It is wishful thinking for anyone to believe that joining APC will shield him from prosecution if found guilty. Whether he likes he can join APC, SDP or any other political party, the law will take its course. It is only under APC government that high ranking people have gone to jail.
“So, if Fayose likes let him come, the law will still catch up with him if found guilty. Tell Nigerians and the world, that even if Fayose comes to APC, the law will catch up with him if found guilty,” he said.
