Leadership Crisis: I will dump PDP if… –Fayose


Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has said that the possibility of his leaving the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is 100 percent should the Supreme Court pronounce Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the national chairman of PDP.

Fayose made the disclosure to newsmen on Tuesday while reacting to media reports that he had removed the name and logo of the PDP from his campaign office and mini signposts mounted on Ado and Ikere-Ekiti roads.

Fayose said he remains a bona fide member of the PDP until the outcome of the court ruling.

It would be recalled that there had been various moves to reconcile the factions in the PDP but all efforts had yielded no tangible results.

Fayose who belongs to the Makarfi-faction of the PDP had severally said that he would not recognise Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the party’s leader.

On February 17, a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt had ruled that the caretaker committee headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi was illegal and could not act on behalf of the PDP.

Meanwhile, the governor also met with youths in the state where he called for more support for his administration and enjoined them to come out en masse on May 19 to honor the late former Governor of the Southwest region, Gen. Adeyinka Adebayo.
