The APC seems prepared to capture the entire South-western states as it eyes Ekiti State after the overwhelming victory in Ondo.
Plateau State governor, Barr. Simon Lalong has told his Ekiti State counterpart, Governor Ayodele Fayose to discountenance the thought of joining the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) now that the party is making sweeping gains in the South West, advising him to remain with the Peop|€X Democratic Party until the APC must have won the state over.
Apparently responding to Governor Fayose who made headlines that he may be dumping his party, the PDP, Governor Lalong said he was eagerly waiting for the elections to come up in the state, promising that the APC will replicate the successes the party recorded in Edo and Ondo States, according to the Leadership.
He said this at the North Central Zonal Congress of the APC for the election of persons to fill vacant national positions to be filled by the zone in Abuja, just as he said that the party is poised to winning the upcoming Rivers Rerun and Anambra elections.
Lalong said: “the one I am waiting for is Ekiti. I understand that after Ondo, the man has been saying he wants to come to APC, we are saying he should remain in PDP till after the election.
“We just came back from Ondo and we were again recruited yesterday to go to Rivers again and conduct another election. Our own is to ask for your usual and continued support.
“Before now, some people were looking down on APC, but now people with ambitions for 2019 are withdrawing from the PDP and coming to the APC. we are going to Rivers and we will win the elections there. after there, we are moving to Anambra and that one is a done deal.
