Fayose Threatens to Fight Makinde, Others Seeking to Takeover Ekiti PDP Structure

Former governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose has warned Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, against tampering with the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in his home state, Ekiti.

Fayose said he was ready to resist any attempt by anyone who wants to wrestle the leadership of the PDP in Ekiti State from him.

The former governor stated this when he led national stalwarts of the party including the chairmen of the party in Osun, Ekiti, Lagos, to Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Fayose said that despite being a zonal leader of the party as a result of his position as the only PDP governor in the South-West region, Makinde should allow local leaders lead their respective states.

He said, “There has been a reasonable cold war of who and who becomes the executive of the zone. Governor Makinde has demanded that the zonal executive be sacked and a caretaker be fostered on the zone which the party did.

“The fact that there is a sitting governor does not say I should go to another man’s state. Nobody should come to my state; if you come to my state, I will face you squarely.

“I will continue to respect him because he is my brother, I love him so much and I was part of his emergence.”

Meanwhile, the Sikirullahi Ogundele led faction of the PDP in Ogun State took over the secretariat of the party from the Buruji Kashamu faction in a peaceful manner following his death and held a zonal meeting afterwards.
