The Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State has lampooned the former governor of Ekiti State, Mr Peter Ayodele Fayose for attacking Oyo State State governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde.
The party in a statement on Tuesday
dissociated itself from the statement against Makinde credited to the faction loyal to former Governor Ayodele Fayose.
In a statement signed by the factional Publicity Secretary of PDP, Chief Sanya Adesua in Ado Ekiti titled: “Ekiti PDP disowns Fayose, backs Makinde’s S’ West leadership, maintained that Oyo State Governor is the undisputable leader of the party in the South West which is in accordance with the PDPs rules and conventions.
The party advised Ayo Fayose to close rank with Makinde to move the South West party forward and stop disturbing the peace of the party.
The statement said:
“This is not to say that former governor Ayo Fayose can be wished away in the scheme of things as one of the party leaders in the zone, but he should understand that he does not own the party and as such, should respect the existing political organogram/arrangements which he once benefitted from, as the only elected PDP governor in the zone between 2014 and 2018,” he stated.
The reminded Fayose that Southwest has only one sitting governor on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, it could no longer afford destabilisation ochestrated by individuals who assumed ownership of the party.
Meanwhile, a former Minister of Power and Steel, Dr Wole Oyelese, has blamed the festering crisis in the South-West chapter of the inability of the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, to caution the warring factions.
Oyelese said if the national chairman of the party had called Makinde and Fayose to resolve the crisis, the embarrassing situation would have been averted.
Oyelese, said this in an interview with our correspondent, in Ibadan, on Tuesday.
He said, “It is unfortunate that the party at the national level allowed things to get to this level.
“My expectation is by now, the national body especially the national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, should have cautioned the two of them. The crisis between Governor Seyi Makinde and Ayo Fayose, shouldn’t have been allowed to get to this level.”
