Mr Ayodele Fayose, the former Governor of Ekiti state, has vowed to work against the interest of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming re run Governorship elections, unless his supporters and him are rehabilitated by the party.
The Court of Appeal in Benin City, this week sacked Peoples Democratic Party’s Dr Segun Oni as the State Governor, and ordered a re run of the Governorship elections in 10 Local Governments in Ekiti state within 30 days. Dr Oni will square up with Dr Kayode Fayemi of the Action Congress, the opposition party.
But Fayose, who describes himself as the “beautiful bride of Ekiti state” said he will not support the candidature of PDP’s Dr Segun Oni in the re run unless his conditions are met.
“Let me tell you, I love to remain in PDP but I can not tolerate injustice in the party. Mark my words; except Justice is done in the PDP, I will not work for the party in the rerun election. I mean it, honestly if the PDP fails to do justice and meet the conditions I gave the Party, I will not work for them” Fayose said this week during a visit to Osun state Governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola in Osogbo.
“People have been cheated simply because they are my followers. Now we want everybody integrated back into the party unconditionally. We want the party restructured, we demand for payment of allowances of past political office holders that worked for me, we want the cases of political detainees to be revisited without delay and above all.
We must be assured that nobody would be victimised among my followers because we expect at this age of our democracy, there should be freedom of expression. Nobody should intimidate another because of access to power“
