Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose on Sunday, March 22, 2015 took a swipe at the All Progressives Congress, saying that the fake opinion polls being trumped up by the party eill not help it win the forthcoming elections.

Governor Fayose, who spoke via a statement signed by his Special Adviser on New Media, Lere Olayinka said the opposition was suffering from “Acquired Self-deceit Syndrome,” after the APC said it would win the presidential elections in Ekiti State.


He said: “Fake opinion polls won’t assist the APC the way it did not assist the party in the June 21, 2014 Ekiti governorship election.”

“When you are telling yourself that Buhari will win in Ekiti, it shows that you are suffering from Acquired Self-Deceit Syndrome, which is even more deadly than Ebola disease.

“That’s the same way they deceived themselves with orchestrated opinion polls before the Ekiti election, and up till now, they are still dazed by the 16 – 0 defeat.

“Funny enough, one of the newspapers that published the orchestrated opinion polls described Ido-Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti State as a ‘sleepy town’ thinking that Ido-Osi is a town.”

Governor Fayose also addressed rumours that the Federal Government was planning on freezing the accounts of those sponsoring the APC campaign, saying that the APC was already preparing to lose.

The Governor said: “They are already preparing the minds of their gullible supporters for the impending electoral woe that will befall the party on Saturday.

“When they lose, they will come out with story of how the inability of the party financiers like Senator Bola Tinubu, Governor Rotimi Amaechi and others to access funds made Buhari to lose.

“I sympathise with them and I can only urge the APC and its leaders to try their luck in 2019. But then, they must purge themselves of the Acquired Self-deceit Syndrome because Nigeria presidency cannot be taken by falsehood.”
