Fayose, governor-elect of Ekiti has taken a swipe at former president
of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo by telling him to leave the party if he
wants to.
Fayose who was addressing a rally organised in Ibadan on
Wednesday 9 July by the South West Organisation and Mobilisation
Committee of the PDP the party would no longer beg those desirous of
“If they want to join other parties, they can go. They
should not disparage the party again because if they do, they will go,”
he said.
He then indirectly attacked Obasanjo by saying: “They
have enjoyed benefits in the party, so they should respect the party,
whether former president or senator.
Obasanjo is the only former
president produced by the PDP that is still alive. Obasanjo was
president of Nigeria for eight years between 1999 and 2007. He was
succeeded by late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.
Fayose then sounded a note
of warning to all members of the party. “Any member of the party who
feels like leaving the party is free to go to another one.
is the last time that any member of the party, irrespective of his
position, whether former governor or president, will be begged to
remain in the party.
“I left the party when I had misunderstanding
with it and returned when we resolved our differences. The door is open
for them to leave,” he said.
Fayose promised that the best
candidate would emerge from all the state primaries. “I am the only
person in Nigeria to have achieved the feat of defeating two incumbent
governors; so I am in a position to give advice on how to achieve
victory at the polls.
“We will defeat APC in Oyo state and other
South-west states with the support of the people. Our business in
government is to perform and give due recognition to the grassroots.
has wasted the opportunity it has to perform by neglecting the
grassroots people. Elections are not won by propaganda, but at the
grassroots level, if Ekiti can do it, Oyo people can do the same,”
Fayose said.
Also speaking at the rally, former governor of Oyo
State, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala, said the forum was meant to
demonstrate the PDP’s determination to win the state in 2015.

party members.
