Sheriff to Fayose: Quit PDP now
The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff, has told the Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, to leave the party as he was responsible for the crisis rocking the party.
The PDP chairman, who spoke with journalists after a visiting the party secretariat in Calabar, Cross River, said Fayose’s exit would bring peace to the party.
According to Sheriff, Fayose was the only PDP governor causing crisis in the party.
He described the Ekiti governor as a loner who was acting a script of his “benefactor” to wreck the PDP.
Sheriff advised Fayose to quickly announce his exit from the PDP, so the party can get peace and properly prepare for the 2019 general elections.
The PDP chairman said, “He (Fayose) cannot speak for the southwest PDP. The southwest PDP that I know cannot allow the likes of Fayose to be speaking for them.
“Fayose is alone and he is speaking for himself not the PDP of southwest. He is the only governor that is causing problem among the 12 PDP governors that we have today.
“If he wants to leave the party, he should go and there will be peace in the PDP because he is the architect of the crisis in our party.
“For the record, all the southwest PDP chairmen and their leaders are with me. So where is Fayose getting his support base from? He is a alone and he’s just playing the script of his author. He should go if he wants.”
