Fayose/Makinde Face-off: You’re only a spent force, PDP BOT members, Leaders, Ogun Chapter tell Fayose

Some PDP leaders and BoT members from the South West region have berated the former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose over his face off with Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state.

The regional stakeholders and Leaders of the party reminded Fayose that he is no longer in power but just as an ordinary member without the authority to decide the fate of the party in the region any longer.

The BOT members and leaders of PDP in the Region in a  press release also warned the National headquarters of the party to desist from giving the former Governor undue recognition which is inimical to the progress and success of the party in the Region.

They appealed to all National Working Committee to deal directly with the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde who is now the only recognized leader of the party in the zone and not Fayose who has spent his time on same seat.

“It will be recalled that Gov. Fayose of Ekiti State in 2016 single-handedly handpicked Dr. Eddy Olafeso and Bunmi Jenyo as Chairman and Secretary of the party in the zone without recourse to any other leader of the party”. 

In the meantime, 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 statement reads further, “We have been following Mr. Fayose’s forlorn dream to be the imperial leader of the PDP in the South West in spite of the fact that he is not the only former governor of the PDP in the zone.

“We do not know what he stands to gain in undermining notable leaders and elders of the PDP in the South West, especially the Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, who God has chosen to be the new leader of the PDP in the South West.

“It is high time Mr. Fayose woke up from his dream and faced the reality that his time has passed and a new leader has emerged; and we must genuinely accept Engr. Makinde without any dispute as the one who has been anointed by the Almighty God to lead us in the South West PDP at this point in time
“When Mr. Fayose held sway as the Governor of Ekiti State, he never allowed anyone to challenge him. He bamboozled and supressed everyone as governor even when we had the more experienced and mature Dr. Olusegun Mimiko as governor of Ondo State.”

The party appealed to notable leaders and elders of the PDP like Chief Bode George, Alhaji Shuaibu Oyedokun, Senator Abiodun Olujinmi and Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, among others, to rally round Makinde to take PDP to greater heights.

It wondered why Fayose enjoys destroying other people’s legacies while protecting his own.
“Mr. Fayose takes delight in betraying his friends because of his selfish interest. After our beloved leader, the late Senator Buruji Kashamu supported him to emerge as the Governor of Ekiti State in 2014, he betrayed him and nearly drove him out of the PDP.

“He worked against the PDP and Senator Olujinmi’s re-election but God disappointed him.
“We would have thought that that would have taught him a lesson. But no, he continues with his unbridled arrogance and bloated ego,” the party added.

“It urged the Governors and other national leaders of the PDP “to call Mr. Fayose to order before he plunges the PDP in the South West into another round of avoidable crisis because of his unbridled ambition and insatiable hunger for power.”
