– PDP has begged governor Fayose not to leave the party
– The opposition urged the governor to rescind on his threat to decamp
– According to the deputy national publicity secretary of PDP, Fayose is a great asset to the party
The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, to rescind on his threat to leave the opposition party.
The party urged the governor to avoid taking action over the just concluded parties national convention on Saturday, October 6.
Speaking on the matter, the deputy national publicity secretary, Diran Odeyemi said Fayose is a great asset to the party.
Punch reports that Odeyemi said: “We appeal to him not to leave the party, he has been an asset and he has benefited from the party. Even when he left, he still came back to the party, so he should consider all that and not abandon the party when we need him most.”
“He should consider the fact that all those who left the PDP for other parties regretted that they left.
He should not leave now that the likes of Atiku, Bukola Saraki, Aminu Tambuwal are back in the party. God will guide him aright, he should not take any decision in anger,” Odeyemi added.
It was previously reported that Fayose had regretted the failure of Sokoto Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, to emerge as the PDP presidential candidate at the party’s national convention held in Port Harcourt.
He also threatened to leave the party. Mr Fayose, in a statement on Monday in Ado Ekiti, said he supported his Rivers counterpart, Nyesom Wike, to ensure the emergence of Tambuwal.
A former Vice President Abubakar Atiku picked the PDP ticket for the presidential race after scoring 1,532 votes to floor Mr Tambuwal who got 693 votes.
