The APC insisted that the outgoing governor was planning to seek safe landing to enable him run away from the country.

The party, through its publicity secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, questioned the rationale behind Fayose’s request for the approval of N10 billion extra budget by the state House of Assembly less than one month to the expiration of his tenure.
