Ekiti PDP Crisis: Fayose threatened to dump PDP for APC
Former Governor of Ekiti State,Ayodele Fayose, has threatening the People Democratic Party, PDP, chapter in the state over failure of his candidate for the governorship election if not picked, to joined the ruling party, APC.
Meanwhile, the PDP state chairman, has described Fayose’s comments, as an empty threat. Saying, PDP is not Fayose, family’s business.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) fixed June 18, 2022 for the gubernatorial election.
However, Fayose publicly declared support for the ambition of Bisi Kolawole, PDP chairman in Ekiti.
Kolawole is a native of Efon Alaaye in Ekiti Central. He was formerly House of Assembly member (2007 to 2011) and Commissioner for Environment under Fayose (2014 to 2018).
The party chieftain declared that the former governor cannot “abandon” his house for “tenants”.
“For supporting Bisi Kolawole as PDP governorship candidate, he has no apologies. This is more so that opponents of Bisi Kolawole also know that he is the aspirant to beat.
“For Fayose, PDP remains the bigger picture that must be protected. Our leader is used to these armchair politics of image smearing, he has never been bothered”, he concluded.
