PDP Remains The Greatest Impediments To Nigeria’s Development – Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organisation
By Maxwell Adegbenro
The ongoing malignant crisis that the Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is embroiled in is a clear pointer to the kind of trouble it would foist on Ekiti people if it is given
another chance to govern the state.
The hullabaloo that has all along accompanied its selection of a governorship candidate for theJune 21 election has further shown that the PDP is directionless, indecisive and incapable of getting anything right, as has been demonstrated at the Federal level where it has held sway since 1999.
According to a statement by the spokesperson of the Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organisation, Dimeji Daniels, it is unthinkable that a political party that cannot successfully manage its own affairs is now daydreaming about ruling a progressive state like Ekiti.
“The confusion in the PDP is so incurable that it does not know what it wants. While some are agitating for consensus, others are haggling
over primaries. Seeing the heavy security at its state secretariat in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday on the day of its highly controversial ward
delegates congress, the question on every Ekiti person’s lips is why the PDP cannot settle anything without guns, knives or other dangerous
weapons? The people living around the PDP secretariat at Ajilosun have been in palpable fear since Wednesday, seeing as they were robbed of
their peace by the PDP. Obviously, the PDP has heard the result of the failure that awaits it in the June 21 governorship election, because the party has demonstrated to the people of Ekiti that it cannot settle any of its internal matter without guns,” Daniels said.
He added that this same confusion, lack of understanding, as well as lack of maturity in resolving issues, dotted the Fayose and the Segun
Oni administrations in the state.
“Ekiti people would recall how during his time as governor, Fayose terrorized his deputy, Abiodun Aluko, his party leaders and members like Chief Ojo Falegan, Segun Oni and many others. The same happened during the Segun Oni government. They could never resolve any issue
without running to either Obasanjo or Bode George, the recently acquitted hitherto ex-convict. In other words, the Ekiti PDP cannot do anything meaningfully or successfully without guns or being shepherded. Is that the kind of directionless, clueless and violence-personified political party that wants to rule Ekiti State again?” Daniels queried.
He added that just as the PDP has continued to put Nigerians’ lives in jeopardy at the federal level, its major plan in Ekiti, apart from the
fleecing of the treasury, is to drag the state back to the era of one day, one trouble.
The spokesperson of the Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organisation said it behoved security agencies not to allow the PDP’s self-imposed violence spill over to the populace.
He said “The PDP is a menace to the well-being of Nigeria and Nigerians. All well-meaning Nigerians must team up to stamp it out of
Nigeria. Already, it has self-imploded. It is the duty of every Nigerian to rid this country of this danger with his/her vote as the PDP remains the greatest impediment to the country’s progress and
development. The only unifying factor in the PDP is the nation’s treasury. The moment their access to that seems threatened, they would
turn on themselves with guns and all sorts of dangerous weapons. That is what is presently happening to the PDP in Ekiti State. Whatever
confusion among them now is a scramble to come back to loot Ekiti State, just as they did between 2003 and October 16, 2010.”
Daniels said Ekiti people have seen the impact of good governance through the Kayode Fayemi administration and are not ready to go back
to the years of locust in the political Egypt which is the PDP.
