PDP Must Not Die in Ekiti – Former Governor Fayose Appeals for Unity Among Members

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has urged members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state to put aside their differences and work towards peace and unity.

Fayose made this appeal on Monday while addressing his supporters in Ado-Ekiti, ahead of the PDP congress scheduled for July.

He said, “I have come to tell you that the PDP must not die in Ekiti State. I want you to have peace; please, don’t destroy my personality.”

The former governor expressed concern over the divisions and infighting within the party, stressing that such conflicts could lead to the party’s downfall.

He urged members to shun “politics of bitterness” and come together to ensure the party’s survival and success in the forthcoming gubernatorial election.

Fayose commended Governor Biodun Oyebanji’s performance, describing him as a humble leader who has brought all former governors together. However, he said that this admiration does not mean he will not oppose Oyebanji in the election.

He said: “When we come to election period, we will fight BAO, the PDP is not in order in Ekiti, let us come together.

“I feel satisfied with the work that Governor Biodun Oyebanji has done so far in the state.

“Governor BAO, is a humble governor, thirteen times, he has visited me in Lagos to greet me. We discussed about the progress and development of the state.

“I have to respect him, that has nothing to do with politics, he is the only governor that has brought all governor’s in the state together.

” When it is time for election, we will confront him. I am a landmark Governor in Ekiti State.

“We supported Asiwaju in the last presidential election because he is a Yoruba man, and it’s time for our presidency.

“I am not looking for opposition, If you says Fayose does not matter, wait, during election you will see.

“Let there be no Olujimi, Fayose, Bisi K, Duro Faseyi factions in PDP, let us work for peace so that we will be able to win election in the state.

“I am going to all local government areas and I will support them with logistics for the election of our party”.
