The South West PDP has remained in the news since Governor Seyi Makinde was appointed the party’s spokesperson for the region.
One politician who is finding it difficult to accept the appointment of the governor is Ex- Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose.
Fayose has engaged the party in a war of words, and has even gone as far as sending threats to Seyi Makinde, vowing to deal with him if he sets foot on Ekiti State.
Many PDP members have responded angrily to Fayose’s actions and accused him of anti-party activities.
One of such men is the Oyo Pace Setter Transport Chairman, Dare Adeleke who has consistently maintained that Fayose is a traitor in the party, working to deliver the South West PDP to APC leader, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu.
News making the rounds indicate that the Lagos APC henchman and one of it’s National leaders, will run for the 2023 presidential election and has his eyes on Aso Rock.
Adeleke is again miffed by latest news indicating that another party member, Eddy Olafeso, the immediate past National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in South-West is endorsing Fayose as the party’s spokesperson in the South West.
Olafeso, said Sunday, that Fayose remained a critical voice in the party’s affair in the region, at a meeting with the party’s delegates over his Vice Chairmanship aspiration in the coming zonal Congress of the party on Sunday.
Said Adeleke: ” This is a man who just two was ago collected money from Governor Seyi Makinde to support Eyitayo. Suddenly he jumped into Fayose’s ship, seeking for lost chairmanship. Olafeso is looking for relevance and he is a betrayal of the Gov’s goodwill. I wonder how much Tinubu is dolling out to these traitors of our party!”
Adeleke is also upset at Lere Olayinka, Fayose’s media aide who has insinuated that the present Ekiti governor, Kayode Fayemi, is behind the endorsement of Seyi Makinde and went ahead on a tirade against the governor in a released statement.
Olayinka had said among other things in his outburst that Fayemi sponsored Makinde’s emergence as governor of Oyo.
He also accused Fayemi of snatching Dapo Adeyeye’s senatorial position and handing it over to Senator Abiodun Olujimi.
Adeleke responds: “Olayinka is a paid servant doing his Master’s bidding.
He is blowing his master’s trumpet as usual. A master who is on the verge of going to political oblivion.”
“How can he say someone removed one person from the Senate, is that not stupidity? Is Fayemi the court?
That is the same way they are shamelessly bandying fabricated lies that Fayemi sponsored Governor Makinde and that Makinde is working with Fayemi. They are now screaming like drowning men, desperately thrashing around but still sinking.”
Adeleke says Fayose will not be allowed to decimate the South West PDP: “I repeat, Fayose and his gang are agents of Tinubu, planted to distrupt peaceful atmosphere of our party for Tinubu’s presidential ambition and Fayose is ready to sell out and sink as low as possible because of his case with the EFCC. He thinks Tinubu and APC will save his neck.”
Adeleke warned Fayose to retrace his steps: “This traitor in our midst must retrace his steps, if he still can or the little left of his political career will be ruined.”
