He described the factional PDP candidate as an agent of destabilisation who allegedly had a mission to cause confusion and distraction to the people of the state.
He stated this while speaking on Orange FM political programme in Akure, the Ondo State capital on Tuesday.
He said some agents of confusion were allegedly using current crisis in the PDP to cause confusion in the party so as to pave the way for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress to win the November 26, governorship election.
He said, “I want my people in Ondo State to stand by Jegede, they should not be distracted. I believe justice will prevail. This is a fight against democracy.
“I don’t know Jimoh Ibrahim, he is not a member of the PDP, he is a spoiler, I don’t know how Jimoh Ibrahim will rule Ondo State. Justice will prevail on 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.”
The Ekiti State Governor also denied supporting the governorship candidate of the Alliance for Democracy, Chief Olusola Oke, against the PDP candidate ahead of the election.
He admitted that Oke was his personal friend but he (Fayose) could never do anything that would be against his party, the PDP in the election.
“Oke was a member of the PDP and he is my friend, Akeredolu too is not my enemy but it will be a height of anti-party for me to work for Oke in the election. But all I know is that Jimoh Ibrahim will never be governor of Ondo State.
“God hates agents of destabilisation and it is very unfortunate that Jimoh Ibrahim is into this,” Fayose stressed.
He also noted that his criticism against some actions of President Muhammadu Buhari was in good faith and for the betterment of the country.
