Breaking! Fayemi Purchases Nomination Forms for Ten Aspirants, as a backdrop to Ruse Strategy.

New intelligence obtained by Fountain News indicates that Dr. Kayode Fayemi has obtained nomination forms for ten candidates on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.

 

In a show of strength, the rumored multi-billionaire Minister who openly boasted of using federal might to unseat the seating state governor has purchased these forms with the sole purpose of organizing a staged show of popularity that will see the rather unpopular former Governor secure last-minute endorsements. Towards this end,  he has been seen besieging the party’s headquarters in Abuja, with a clear motive of manipulating the upcoming party primaries.

 

The candidates concerned including perennial “no show” candidates who have been seen in secret consultation in the Isan Ekiti country home of the newly wealthy minister and former governor, already indicted for various cases of corruption and banned from public office by the state government.

 

The sudden surge in nomination form collection rather than clearing the field, as the Minister previously boasted has ensured his key opponents in the primaries emerging as preferred alternatives; to the widely divisive and distant technocrat(Fayemi) who lacks large public following and was trounced by an equally notorious Governor Fayose across all sixteen local governments in the 2014 election.

 

All things being equal, Fountain News learned that the staged step down or step aside is set to commence as soon as next week with a few aspirants already ceding the handful of delegates in their ward to Dr. Fayemi albeit with no real consequence on the ultimate electoral calculus.

 

Ekiti APC primaries are definitely shaping up to be interesting, and considering the new found wealth of the unpopular ex-governor, the race just became the toast of political circles, we learned.

 

Stay tuned: Report filed by Kayode Atiba.
