Former Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayo Fayose, on Friday denied he had been given a soft landing by the Federal Government in the EFCC’s case against him, said he would not compromise standards.
He said,“I will not follow the multitude to sin. I want to believe that selective justice will not help our country.
“I have condemned anyone who says that in Nigeria, when you come to the All Progressives Congress, then you become a saint. I am telling you, I will never become a member of the APC, I will never defect.
“If I wanted a soft landing against my party, against my candidate, that would have happened in the past, I stood my ground during the elections. So, that is impossible.”
Mr Ayo Fayose, had on Friday said he escaped attacks while leaving the House of Assembly in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.
Fayose, who appeared at the Assembly on Friday on the invitation of the legislative body, said, It was on his way from the Assembly that some people trailed them in a Pick-up purposely to attack them. They managed to escape.
