Fayose to Ekiti PDP members: ‘allow me consult God for choice of my successor’

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has cautioned Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) faithful in the state against sowing seeds of discord amongst aspirants and leadership of the party.
A statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, on Tuesday quoted the governor as sounding the note of warning during a meeting on Monday, at his Afao Ekiti residence with aspirants and leaders from Ikole, Ijero and Ise/Orun LGAs on Monday.
Olayinka stated that the governor said he had nothing against the aspirations of those eyeing the Ekiti top seat but stressed that; “Followers need not create a wedge between me and gubernatorial aspirants. As much as aspirants have the right to aspire, I also reserves the right to support whoever God asks him to support.
“If I were asked to pick a candidate to succeed me, I would have picked Kayode Oso straight off. But I have called him into the room and told him to allow me seek God’s consent concerning it. I have called my deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, I have also called Bisi Omoyeni into the room and asked him to allow me seek God’s consent.
“Whoever God chooses, we will support among the aspirants. Whoever that is not the one, the spirit of sportsmanship should be embraced.
“I have nothing against Prince Adedayo Adeyeye, I have great respect for him, from ministerial appointment to chairmanship at Ekiti State University and then his recommendation to the party at the national level, I have always stood by him, I wouldn’t have done that for someone I don’t love, so mischief makers had better looked elsewhere to play their game.”
Governor Fayose appealed to party members to downplay personal agenda and ensure the party’s interest is put on the front burner, adding that “never will any candidate be imposed on the people.
“We won’t allow anybody destroy the goodwill being enjoyed presently by the PDP because there is no doubt about our party’s popularity in Ekiti today.
“I want to assure you that entire nobody will impose anybody on you. With me here, you will all get justice.
“Those we imposed in the past disappointed us, the system should be allowed to run its course,” he said.
Governor Fayose, during the meeting with party members from Ijero Ekiti also directed that about 23 members hitherto suspended from the party be forgiven and reabsorbed into the party
