Segun Adewale, the Lagos State Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has condemned the unbridled romance of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State with leaders of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
He was reacting to the Fayose’s open acknowledgement of the political sagacity of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the national leader of the APC and former Lagos state Governor during his 65th birthday celebration.
The Ekiti State Governor publicly celebrated Tinubu in a video footage he posted on Youtube channel.
In a statement made available to newsmen signed by Adewale, he decried how some leaders of the party, including Fayose, had completely sold out to individuals within the ruling party at the detriment of the members.
”No doubt, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu paid his dues towards the success of APC in the last general elections. He deserves the admiration of members of the ruling party for providing a responsible leadership within his party.
”I want to advise Governor Fayose to emulate Bola Tinubu’s team spirit and respect for party organs in his dealings within the PDP and not embark on actions that may further demoralise our members.
”The political sagacity of Tinubu is worthy of study by upcoming politicians. However, open acknowledgement of Asiwaju doggedness that saw our party out of power in 2015 is a mockery on the PDP,” he said.
Destruction of PDP
The party chairman said it was an aberration for Governor Fayose to publicly acknowledge the role played by Asiwaju in destroying PDP that made Fayose what he is today.
”It is impossible to also forget the role played by Asiwaju Tinubu in the emergence of President Buhari as the Nigerian President, a decision that has brought untold economic hardship on Nigerians.
”Obviously, the choice of President Buhari wasn’t in the interest of the people but for personal aggrandisement of a few politicians,” he said.
Adewale said that the Fayose’s action is an open confrontation and an attempt to undermine the party in the south-west, appealing to members of the party to remain steadfast.
