Its time to treat Fayose the way he treated Fayemi: Jimoh Ibrahim says

Mr Jimoh Ibrahim, the PDP governorship hopeful for the November 26 gubernatorial election in Ondo state has replied Governor Fayose's earlier comment that he was a spoiler. 

In his response, he advised Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose not to be hasty as he will soon know who the authentic flag bearer of the party is.

According to the Punch, the governor had earlier said “I don’t know Jimoh Ibrahim, he is not a member of the PDP, and he is a spoiler. I don’t know how Jimoh Ibrahim will rule Ondo State. Justice will prevail for Jegede, there will definitely be light at the end of the tunnel. I know it is going to be praises for Jegede and the people of the state at the end of the day.” 

In an announcement yesterday, Ibrahim said the Ondo PDP issues had not worsened, the Nation reports.

According to the reports, he said: "Fayose is encouraged to wait till November 27 after the election is conducted, as they were going to move to Ekiti to implement the Justice Okon Abang judgment, which likewise covers the PDP officials in Ekiti State. 

"we will come to Ekiti in broad day light, so it is better for Fayose to gather knowledge from the experience of Governor Olusegun Mimiko, who was performing in Ondo, until his attention was diverted by Fayose." 

The PDP hopeful urged Fayose to brace for the reality of the Ondo election, noting that he will triumph in the November 26 poll.

“Let me remind Fayose that I am not former Governor Kayode Fayemi and it is now payback time to treat Fayose the way he treated Fayemi.

“He is equally advised that, this is not an election of prophesy.

“Since Fayose has predicted that I will not be governor, it simply means he will be invited to attend my inauguration,” Ibrahim said.
