Fayose makes u-turn, says ‘I’m not dumping PDP’
By Samuel Faleye, Ado Ekiti
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has made a u-turn on comments regarding his political future, saying he has no plans to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying, I am a PDP member and I remain a PDP member.
In a statement released at Ado-Ekiti, the state capital on Thursday, by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, Fayose lambasted those whom he accused of distorting his statements and peddling the unfounded rumour as mischief-makers.
He described the suggestion that he was getting ready to dump PDP as sheer misrepresentation and deliberate falsehood.
“You don’t just walk out of relationships just like that”, he said, adding that he was being misrepresented for political gains by those who do not wish PDP, Nigeria and Nigerians well.
“Despite its orchestrated leadership problems, PDP remains the stronger party in Nigeria today; by far stronger and more cohesive than any other party in the country. The PDP still remains a solid, nationalistic, and pro-people political party”, he added
While he agreed that there may be some cancerous elements in PDP, he expressed firm confidence that, sooner than later, the judiciary will separate the wheat from the chaff and PDP shall be one again, strong, virile and united party again. We must all join hands to change the deceit called CHANGE and take back Nigeria for Nigerians.
While expressing optimism that PDP will come out of its present challenges stronger and better than before, Gov. Fayose said: “Nigerians have a lot of respect for me and my voice. This I cannot trade for a piece of morsel like the biblical Esau”.
“I want to say categorically that the shenanigans of Ondo governorship elections cannot be repeated in Ekiti; they delude themselves if they think they can. I want to assure them that I am not a General without an army.
“I want to also assure them that even if they bring all the funds in Treasury Single Account (TSA) to Ekiti in 2018, supported by all the machinery the Presidency can muster, they will be treated like the Philistines and Egyptians of the Bible. I am the Biblical Israel that has never and can never be defeated”
“The fact that they rigged PDP out of Ondo state does not mean that they won the hearts of the people. Sooner than later, the joy they procured by dubious means will turn into ashes in their mouths. Their so-called victory is nothing but pyrrhic.
