Ekiti State Governor-elect, Mr. Ayo Fayose, has said that the party will not beg any ex-president, ex-governors or ex-senators wishing to defect from the party.
He stated this at a rally organised by the party’s South-West Organisation and Mobilisation Committee in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Wednesday.
The rally had in attendance the chairman of the committee, Buruji Kashamu, former governor Adebayo Alao-Akala, state chairman of the party, Yinka Taiwo, party leader, Brimo Yusuff, governorship candidates of the party in Oyo, Hazeem Gbolarumi, Femi Babalola, Seyi Makinde, Teslim Folarin, Kehinde Olaosebikan and several members of the party.
Fayose said, “This is the last time that any member of the party, irrespective of his position, whether former governor or president will be begged to remain in the party. If they want to join other parties, they can go. They should not disparage the party again because if they do, they will go.
“They have enjoyed benefits in the party so they should respect the party, whether former president or senator. I left the party when I had misunderstanding with it and returned when we resolved our differences. The door is open for them to leave.”
He added that he was in a position to lead the PDP’s campaign against the All Progressives Party in the South-West being the only person in Nigeria to have defeated two incumbent governors.
He also promised that the best candidate would emerge from all the states, primaries as the party’s national chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, favoured credible process.
Akala said the purpose of the rally was to assure the people of the state that the PDP would release them from the suffering imposed on them by the present government in the state, calling on them to support the party’s return to power in the state.
Fayose said, “I am the only person in Nigeria to have achieved the feat of defeating two incumbent governors, so I am in a position to give advice on how to achieve victory at the polls. We will defeat the APC in Oyo State and other South-West states with the support of the people. Our business in government is to perform and give due recognition to the grassroots. The APC has wasted the opportunity it has to perform by neglecting the masses. Elections are not won by propaganda but at the grassroots level. If Ekiti can do it, Oyo people can do the same,” he added, while also addressing the large crowd to register en masse during the voter registration exercise.
