PDP Crisis Deepens As Governor Makinde Warns Fayose

The last has not been heard of the crisis rocking the opposition party Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Trouble in the PDP southwest took an interesting turn on Thursday, October 8, as Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, blasted ex-Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.

Recall that Fayose had accused Makinde and a former deputy national chairman of the PDP of being behind his attack at the PDP rally in Ondo State, ahead of the Saturday, October 10, governorship election.

Recall that while Fayose walked towards the podium at the PDP campaign ground in Ondo, on Wednesday, October 10, suspected hoodlums charged towards him and removed his cap.

Reacting to the allegation, Governor Makinde warned Fayose to stop distracting him.

In a statement issued by his media aide, Taiwo Adisa, Governor Makinde said Fayose appears to be “perpetually desirous of hugging the limelight even when the occasion doesn’t desire such grandstanding.”

Further, he said: “I believe that ex-governor Fayose and his handlers need to look far away from Oyo state in search of their enemies. Governor Makinde has no link whatsoever with the incident Fayose’s aide was talking about.

“We expect all right-thinking members of the PDP to join the Governor of Oyo State in the prosecution of the noble and democratic assignment he is executing on behalf of the PDP in Ondo state at this time, instead of seeking to distract him one way or the other.

“The governor will, however, not be distracted either on the task at hand or on the well-intentioned desire to join other leaders to rebuild the PDP in the south-west geopolitical zone.”
