Ekiti Coalition Warns Former Governor, FayoseThe former Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, has been warned over his negative utterances against the sitting governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde and the national PDP executives.
The pro-democracy group noted with concern the desperate moves by Fayose to blackmail or tarnish the image of everyone he sees as a stumbling block to his plot to impose a PDP governorship candidate on the good people of the state.
The Coalition in a statement its Public Relation Officer, Dada Banji, wondered why Fayose, who is not an aspirant, has become extremely desperate to corner the PDP governorship ticket.
While urging the PDP NWC and governors’ forum to call Fayose to order, the group said, “the latest attempt by the former Ekiti governor through his propagandist and fake news purveyor, Lere Olayinka, to smear Makinde and the new NWC must be condemned by all.
Banji further said; “Why is Fayose jittery and desperate? Why is he using his social media boy to attack Governor Makinde and the new NWC? Why is he accusing others of conniving to support an aspirant in Ekiti when he is the one who has been going around begging some governors for help, including his alleged secret deals?
“It is also on record that Fayose has not responded to the allegation by a group in the troubled APC that he is deliberately working on fielding a weak candidate for the PDP as a compromise with Governor Kayode Fayemi.
“We know that Fayose will stop at nothing in his wicked antics and campaign of calumny, but we cannot understand why a man who has boasted of being in control of over 800 delegates is suddenly crying foul over 531 ad-hoc delegates.
“While Governor Makinde was the saving grace during the PDP Convention last year when the controversial Ekiti delegates list was almost rejected, unfortunately, the same Fayose has now turned around to accuse Makinde of plotting against the Ekiti PDP State executives.
“But we are happy that every hidden conspiracy by Fayose is getting revealed to the people and that more party members are getting to know his unholy secret plans by the day,” he said.
