Oni set to dump APC over Fayemi victory. Sugun Oni has threatened to dump All Progressives Congress if he is not treated with respect. Oni was the first runner up in last Saturday Ekiti APC primary.
He accused Fayemi of victiming his supporters and he demanded that his supporters must be treated with respect by the winner of the primary, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, and his supporters.
Recall that Fayemi pull out 941 votes ahead of Oni, who polled 481 votes to emerge the winner of Ekiti APC primary.
Speaking with journalists at his country home in Ifaki-Ekiti on Tuesday, Oni raised the alarm that his supporters were receiving threats from Fayemi’s camp.
“I have a responsibility to protect my supporters. But this habit of winners take all and what we are hearing that Segun Oni’s boys will be in the cooler for four years if APC wins is what I won’t tolerate.
“We are not scavenging, neither are we scavengers. We have been receiving pressure from different parties that we should come for the tickets, but we said no, because we want this to be an example and become a new thinking that when you lose the primary, you must stay in your party even when you are popular.
“But if they continue to harass my supporters, I may quit the party, because I have the responsibility not only to protect them but to ensure that they are not taken for a ride,” Oni stated.
