The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has engaged Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose, not to think about leaving the party. Review that Governor Fayose yesterday indicated he was anticipating leaving the party following the result of the presidential primaries just concluded.
Talking with newsmen in Ado-Ekiti the state capital, Governor Fayose asserted that the plot to sideline him and different leaders of the party was because of their help for Governor Aminu Tambuwa’s desire.
“We are not regretting lining up with Governor Nyesom Wike to help Governor Tambuwal for the presidential ticket and no conciliatory sentiments either. Fayose
“We have no regret aligning with Governor Nyesom Wike to support Governor Tambuwal for the presidential ticket and no apologies either. Fayose “We kept the party alive and strong when most men became ladies. We never compromised. If any group feels it can do it alone, we will see how far they can go. I may renounce my membership of the party if the need arises. In the main time, I and others will continue with our consultations while watching the turn of events. “We cannot but appreciate leaders that have intervened so far, but this release became necessary to avoid fresh crisis or misrepresentation.” he said
Responding to Fayose’s threat, PDP through its deputy National publicity secretary, Diran Odeyemi, asked the governor to not think about such plans.
“We appeal to him not to leave the party, he has been an asset and he has benefited from the party. Even when he left, he still came back to the party, so he should consider all that and not abandon the party when we need him most. He should consider the fact that all those who left the PDP for other parties regretted that they left. He should not leave now that the likes of Atiku, Bukola Saraki, Aminu Tambuwal are back in the party. God will guide him aright, he should not take any decision in anger.” he said
