Former Minister of State for Works and Peoples Democratic Party , PDP,
Governorship aspirant in Ekiti State, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, has rebuffed the appeal of the Deputy Governor, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, that other aspirants should sheathe their swords in the interest of peace.
Adeyeye described the olive branch waved by Olusola to other governorship aspirants as “gratuitous insult on the sensibilities of reasonable PDP members in Ekiti and beyond.”
Olusola who made the appeal in a statement issued by his office on
Monday pleaded with aspirants aggrieved with his adoption as the
“sole candidate” to give peace a chance and work for the party’s victory in the 2018 governorship poll.
In a statement on Tuesday signed by the Director of Media, Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement (PAAM), Mr. Niyi Ojo, Adeyeye described the September 6 adoption of Olusola as “a charade and illegality.”
Adeyeye said: “Let nobody hoodwink Ekiti people with rhetoric of being a divine choice; the choice was that of Fayose who has put himself in the position of God Almighty and when you equate yourself with God, then your downfall is at hand.
“Fayose continues to beat drums o war threatening party members who attend meetings of other aspirants with suspension. He continues to sack from his government party members whose only offence is that they show support for other aspirants other than his stooge.
“Olusola should therefore direct his appeal to his boss who is the
main agent of destabilisation and disharmony in the party.
“There will surely be a primary election because Fayose has no control over that, but the act of threatening PDP members not to attend other aspirants’ meetings should stop forthwith.
“It is illegal and smacks of the brigandage for which Fayose is noted.
Let everyone canvass for votes without encumbrances and intimidation.
The contraption caled adoption will collapse like a pack of cards because you don’t put something on nothing.”
“Fayose should stop using government apparatus to harass political appointees and party executives; it has not worked in the past and it will never work now.”
