Fani-Kayode Threatens to Quit PDP in Solidarity with Gov Ayade
Nwolu Obiajulu

Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has threatened to quit the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in solidarity with Cross River State governor, Ben Ayade if the party takes away its structure from the governor.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP postponed the State congress of the party initially scheduled for August 8 over what reports attribute to lack of agreement between stakeholders in the state to arrive at consensus candidates to occupy various positions.

Governor Ayade is speculated to be at loggerheads with some party chieftains over who controls the soul of the party ahead of 2023 election.

Fani-Kayode reacted to the disagreement on Wednesday through his verified twitter handle, @realFFK by saying that he will dump the party along with other stalwarts in solidarity with Ayade if the governor is forced out of the PDP.

He said, “It would be a big mistake for the NWC of the @OfficialPDPNig to take the party structures in his state away from Ben Ayade, governor of Cross Rivers state, and hand them over to anyone else. If this is done and Ayade leaves the party be rest assured that many of us will leave with him.

“You cannot and must not undermine a sitting Governor or attempt to humiliate him in his own state and before his people. Some of those that are advocating and behind this nonsense would never allow it to happen in their own states. A word is enough for the wise.

“No-one, no matter how big or powerful, should think that they own the @OfficialPDPNig. If there is any attempt to undermine Ayaade it will spark off a crisis in the party that will split it right down the middle and the consequences will not be limited to Cross Rivers state.”
