Ekiti PDP Suspend Ayo Fayose, 3 Others… My Suspension A Cancellation of PDP In Ekiti State- Fayose
The crisis rocking the Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has resulted in the indefinite suspension of some of its members including former governor, Ayodele Fayose.
The suspension was announced by the State Chairman, Makanjuola Ogundipe at a press conference in Ado-Ekiti earlier today.
Also suspended alongside Fayose are the party’s the state Secretary, Mr TKO Aluko, the Woman Leader, Mrs Busola Oyebode and the party’s Public Relations Officer, Pastor Oluwawole.
Fayose was alleged to have sponsored some thugs that attacked the party secretariat last week Tuesday. He is also said to be against the Consensus screening committee for the 25 PDP Governorship aspirant which he said will be favourable to the Minister of Police Affairs Caleb Olubolade, who is nursing a governorship ambition.
Meanwhile, the former governor who is also a governorship aspirant under the PDP has described his suspension from the party as an outright cancellation of the entire PDP in Ekiti State.
In a statement released shortly after the announcement of his suspension, the former governor said “this is not only laughable but ignoble; suspending Fayose is like suspending PDP in Ekiti, It is the national leadership of PDP, not Ogundipe, that can suspend Fayose who toiled to make the party occupy its present position as major opposition party in the state today.
The statement added “ Fayose is an institution that cannot be excised from a party like PDP,”.
As at the time of this report, heavy presence of anti-riot policemen were seen stationed around the PDP secretariat in Ado-Ekiti to forestall the breakdown of law and order by supporters and thugs of the former governor.
