The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of deploying his aides to unleash serial media attacks on Pastor Enoch Adeboye and blame them on APC.
The party said that the motive was to set Nigerians, particularly Christians of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, against the party and its leaders.
The party had a few days ago refuted a media report linking it with a report castigating Adeboye for praising Fayose during the visit by the man of God to the state. Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said in a statement in Ado-Ekiti that the serial media attacks on Pastor Adeboye were orchestrated “by a criminal gang working for Fayose to always set communities against communities, individuals against individuals, and the party in bad light to incur the wrath of Redeemed Church members and general public”.
He said: “We want to make it plain with all sense of responsibility that APC is not the author of the two press statements as we have utmost respect for men in God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye in particular.
“The two press statements bear the footprint of Fayose in his characteristic manner to push fictitious and damaging press releases in the media against individuals and institutions and ascribe them to his opponents to incur public opprobrium.”
