Ekiti: PDP reacts to reported ‘threat’ by Fayose to join APC

Former governor Ayo Fayose is unconcerned by petty blackmail, according to local government chairmen of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State.

The statement was made in response to Fayose’s reported threat to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) if his preferred candidate for governorship flagbearer was not chosen.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) fixed June 18, 2022 for the gubernatorial election.

In May, Fayose publicly declared support for the ambition of Bisi Kolawole, PDP chairman in Ekiti.

Kolawole is a native of Efon Alaaye in Ekiti Central. He was formerly House of Assembly member (2007 to 2011) and Commissioner for Environment under Fayose (2014 to 2018)

Michael Abiodun, Chairman of PDP LG Chairmen in a statement said it is PDP or nothing for Fayose and his political family.

The party chieftain declared that the former governor cannot “abandon” his house for “tenants”.

“For supporting Bisi Kolawole as PDP governorship candidate, he has no apologies. This is more so that opponents of Bisi Kolawole also know that he is the aspirant to beat.

“For Fayose, PDP remains the bigger picture that must be protected. Our leader is used to these armchair politics of image smearing, he has never been bothered”, he said.
