You Are Free To Leave Our Party – Ekiti PDP To Fayose


Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has carpeted the threat by Governor Ayodele Fayose of the State to dump the party should Sheriff win at the Supreme Court.

The party faction loyal to Senator Ali Modu Sheriff said “we shall not miss him.”

The faction, in a statement made available to Journalists in Ado Ekiti, on Thursday, alleged that “one very painful fact which is driving Governor Fayose away from PDP is that it is inconceivable for him to have lost control of the party structures in Ekiti State from ward to local government and state level in accordance with a federal high court judgement.”

In the statement signed by the deputy chairman, Olasunkanmi Ogunbiyi and secretary, Ilesanmi Obe, the faction claimed that “the exit of Fayose from PDP will not adversely affect the fortunes of the party,” adding that “all the ward, local government and state executives as well as the state’s leadership caucus remain intact.”

Ogunbiyi and Obe recalled that Fayose had once tried his popularity when he contested for the Central senatorial seat while in Labour Party, noting that he “failed woefully and this proves that the platform aided his victories and not his so-called popularity.”

They said “if he decides to leave PDP again, we shall not miss him as the party remains strong and in fact under the able leadership of Chief Clement Awoyelu, the first state chairman of the party,” saying “when Fayose dumped the party in 2007, we went ahead to win the governorship election and all the nine National Assembly seats and 13 House of Assembly seats without him.
