Fayose chides Tinubu over ‘rig and roast’ comment
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.
