Ayodele Fayose

The purported come back bid of the former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr
Ayodele Fayose to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State
has been described as an “embarrassing insult not only to the state
chapter of the PDP but to the founding fathers and sensibilities of
the members of the party worldwide.”
 
A group in the party, Ekiti Patriotic Front (EPF) said in a release
signed by its Coordinator, Hon.Yomi Ayorinde that Fayose was not fit
to be re-admitted into the PDP just like that, considering “the level
of havoc he recklessly wreaked on the party.”
 
Hon. Ayorinde said that there was nothing cheering about Fayose come
back bid to the PDP, adding that; “it is shameful that some hungry
faceless people who were sponsored went to beg Fayose to come back to
the PDP. This is nauseating and embarrassing.”
 
He pointed out that “Fayose should even be ashamed of coming back to
the PDP, a party he denigrated and called all sorts of unprintable
names while romancing the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), and
currying favour from the party leader, Senator Bola Tinubu.”
 
“Having worked against the PDP in three elections, what else does he
want in the party?
 
“Besides, this man is noted for mischief and that he has demonstrated
on various occasions by moving first from PDP to the All Nigerian
Peoples Party (ANPP), Progressives Peoples Alliance (PPA), ACN and
then Labour Party (LP).”
 
Ayorinde said that Fayose’s come back bid was as a result of his
meeting a brick wall in his dwindled political career.
 
He said further; “If he has shame, he would not even talk of PDP any
longer. Here is a man who abandoned the PDP in 200, deployed his
resources and structure for ANPP in 2007, brought PPA to Ekiti and
re-branded all his vehicles and offices to PPA, which he later dumped
and eloped with ACN to work against PDP.
 
”In 2009 rerun election, he embraced ACN and vigorously campaigned for
Fayemi, only for the ACN government to reject him, prompting him to
move to Labour Party in 2010; now he wants to come back to PDP. Isn’t
that shameful?”
