PDP Warns Fayose Over Attack on Oyo Gov Makinde


The Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose lacked the moral right to complain about the leadership of the party in the South West.

The party spoke against the backdrop of media reports that Fayose on Wednesday warned the Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, to steer clear of the leadership of the party in Ekiti and other South West states.

A statement issued in Abeokuta on Thursday by the Chairman of the party in Ogun State, Hon. Samson Bamgbose quoted him as saying that it was an irony of fate that Fayose who refused to allow legally-recognised Ogun State PDP Exco to function since 2016 could be complaining of interference.

“We are surprised that Mr. Fayose could be talking of the need to allow some persons to complete their terms and run the party in their states, whereas he is the master of impunity and meddlesomeness.

“He is the brain behind the impostors that he has been associating with in Ogun State. He has been supporting them against the Rule of Law since his days as governor of Ekiti State.

“He truncated the tenure of the South West Zonal Exco as well as that of Prof. Wale Oladipo and the late Alhaji Fatai Adeyanju as National Secretary and National Auditor. He ran the party like his personal business when he was the only PDP governor in the South West.”

The Traditional Religion Worshippers’ Association of Nigeria, Oyo State Chapter, on Tuesday, morning, September 8, staged a peaceful protest to express their grievance over discrimination against deities’ worshippers.
