An aide to Professor Olusola Eleka, the former Deputy Governor and PDP candidate in the 2018 governorship election, Mr. Adebisi Adeola, has called on the National Working Committee, especially National Chairman of People’s Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, to call former governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, to order for his uncouth statement and bullying behavior.
Mr. Adeola, who was reacting to a personal attack and show of rascality by both Fayose and his brother, Isaac Fayose on his principal, Eleka, added that the former governor is majorly preoccupied with his selfish interest above the general interest of the party and Ekiti State.
Reacting to a video and audio that went viral on social media where Fayose and his brother rained abusive and derogatory words on governorship aspirants that refused to step down for his anointed candidate, Chief Bisi Kolawole, Adeola said the only problem PDP is facing today in Ekiti is Fayose’s shenanigans to pocket the party to his own benefit, not minding its future.
Adeola said: “There is no doubt in the fact that APC has failed in Ekiti. But we know that the only opportunity left for PDP to oust APC misrule in 2022 is for all leaders of the party to unite against APC, our common enemy rather than unnecessary bickering to no avail”
Condemning Isaac Fayose for his threatening message and derogatory words on his principal, Adeola said Fayose’s style of bullying people will not see the light of the day in the next guber primaries and general election come 2022.
“I call on PDP stakeholders to take their destinies into their hands”
“Prof. Eleka is entitled to his opinion and aspiration to contest election as a qualified son of Ekiti. It is within his purview to step down for any aspirant or pursue his mission.
“PDP belongs to all of us and the party is not Fayose’s property or the wishy-washy followers to do hatchet job of the opposition.
The height of this is, Mr Fayose has been putting calls through to a number of loyalists of Professor Eleka and raining curses on them to withdraw their support which had been rebuffed.
“I want to believe this is an ugly development which indicates the ex governor is being too desperate and selfish about the forthcoming election,” Adeola added.
He, however, called Southwest leadership of PDP and Secondus led-NWC to rescue the party from untimely collapse, adding that “all hands must be on deck to win election in 2022.”
