Fayose chides Tin­ubu over ‘rig and roast’ com­ment

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Doyin Ade­busuyi, Ado Ek­iti

For­mer gover­nor of La­gos State, Asi­waju Bola Tin­ubu, yes­ter­day re­ceived more bash­ing as the cam­paign or­gan­i­sa­tion of the gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party in Ek­iti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose, lam­basted him over his “rig and roast” com­ment.

Tin­ubu had last week dur­ing his in­vesti­ture as chan­cel­lor of Ladoke Ak­in­tola Univer­sity of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy, Og­bo­moso, Osun State, threat­ened that any­body who at­tempts to rig the forth­com­ing gu­ber­na­to­rial elec­tions in Ek­iti and Osun States, “would be roasted”.

The Ayo Fayose cam­paign or­gan­i­sa­tion at a press con­fer­ence in Ado Ek­iti, de­scribed the state­ment cred­ited to the na­tional leader of All Pro­gres­sive Congress, as “out­burst of a frus­trated man.”

Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the or­ga­ni­za­tion, Chief Dipo Anisu­lowo, who spoke at the con­fer­ence, said Tin­ubu’s com­ment was an in­di­ca­tion that his party has lost hope in the elec­tion.
