The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the South-West has accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State of causing crisis in the zone following his action of summoning a zonal PDP leaders meeting.
According to the Chairman of the party in the region, Chief Makanjuola Ogundipe, in a statement in Abuja, Fayose is was a big shame, adding that he lacks the right to call for a zonal meeting.
He said, “Ordinarily, any action by a character like Fayose does not deserve a response from a responsible quarter. But, for record purposes, it is important to point out that Fayose is the big shame bedevilling the PDP family, especially in the South-West.
“Fayose’s action of summoning a meeting he lacks the right to call at a time when well-meaning leaders and elders are calling for restraint and reconciliation is most despicable.
“Otherwise, how do we describe his action and utterances under the guise of a non-existent and illegal South-West PDP leaders’ forum? In what capacity did he call the meeting of South-West PDP leaders? Can a governor call a zonal PDP leaders meeting?
“Has he been able to call a full meeting of the PDP Governors’ Forum which he purports to lead? We thank God that most of the respectable leaders of our party in the South-West shunned the illegal gathering.
“He must be reminded that he was the least qualified to be Ekiti governor when he was foisted on the party and the people of the state. Most of those who fell for his trick of being a better and more mature person are now full of regrets”.
