The immediate past Ekiti State Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General, Owoseni Ajayi, has announced his defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC, ending his 20-year relationship with Governor Ayodele Fayose.

Mr Ajayi addressed newsmen on Monday to say he had formally quit the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to join forces with the candidate of the APC in the July 14th election, Kayode Fayemi, to win the election.

Mr Ajayi said: “I have decided from today 11th June 2018 to withdraw my membership of PDP and join APC forthwith to be able to actualise my political dream.”

He said he had weighed all the other aspirants and decided to pitch his tent with Mr Fayemi to win the election, saying “APC will win the coming election.”

He said he’s not joining the APC to beg for any political office, having been two-time Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice and a former chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, in Ado Ekiti.

According to him, he had been working with and for Mr Fayose for 20 years and that he had endured enough humiliation in his hands, saying “there’s a limit to my tolerance. I’ve exhibited extreme tolerance.”

On the cases he had filed against Mr Fayemi and the APC as PDP chief and Attorney General, he said he had not done anything illegal as a government functionary, saying all the actions he took were legal and proper.

He said: “I acted as the Attorney General of the state. Everything I did was as a result of collective decisions of the government, and not as an individual. It’s not about Owoseni Ajayi.”
