Ekiti Guber: Aggrieved Aspirants Yet To Agree On Consensus Candidate—Adeyeye
The Campaign Organisation of Afenifere Chieftain and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Ekiti State, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, has debunked the insinuation that a consensus candidate has been picked among the 13 aggrieved aspirants in the party.
The Director General of Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement (PAAM), Hon Bisi Kolawole, who made this known in a statement issued today, said "the 12 aspirants that met in Abuja yesterday did not unanimously agree on anyone as a consensus candidate."
Kolawole, who said agreement on consensus candidate must be unanimous, added that; only five out of the 12 aspirants supported one of the aspirants.
"A situation where only five very weak aspirants supported one of the aspirants, cannot be regarded as a consensus agreement.
"Rather, consensus should take into consideration the strength of the aspirants.
"Most importantly, what ought to have been done was for the aspirants to call for the implementation of the Chief Bode George's Committee Report, which all of them signed to abide with.
"Since all the aspirants signed to abide with the decision of the Chief Bode George Committee, what should have been done simply, was the implementation of the report, and that was what Prince Adeyeye pointed out at the meeting.
"It is therefore our position in PAAM that if the consensus option is still necessary in view of the present situation, report of the Chief Bode George Committee, which considered the strength of the aspirants must form the basis," Kolawole said.
