Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the visit of five

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today, to former President Olusegun

Obasanjo as unwarranted, unnecessary and uncalled for.

The governor said PDP as a party must stop condoning indiscipline, saying;

“nobody should be treated as being bigger than the party.”

He added that Obasanjo who does not appreciate others deserve no respect,

adding that “no amount of mudslinging from him will stop President

Goodluck Jonathan's reelection.”
The governor  said visiting Obasanjo to plead with him to rescind his

decision not to participate in the party's activities was capable of

encouraging other members of the party to openly disrespect the office of

President and Commander-in-chief of the Armed forces of Nigeria as being

done by Obasanjo.
Governor Fayose, who called for immediate suspension  of the former

president from the PDP,  said; “A man who has refused to respect the

office of the President of Nigeria that he once occupied does not also

deserve respect from anyone.”
He urged the party to set a panel to probe Obasanjo's anti-party activities.

The governor,  who described Obasanjo as one of the major problems of

Nigeria, added that the former president's open castigation of President

Goodluck Jonathan was unbecoming of someone who led the country for 11

years and wasted billions of naira in his attempt to perpetuate himself in

office beyond the constitutionally recognised two-term.

He said; “Have you ever heard a former president of the United States of

America (USA) openly abusing a sitting president of the country?

“Does it mean that former USA president, Bill Clinton agreed with all the

policies of George W. Bush and the incumbent president, Barack Obama?

“Obasanjo is behaving unpresidentially and he must be told to respect

himself.”
Speaking further, Fayose said Obasanjo was already a member of the

opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) and that he was pushing for one

of his loyalists to  be the party's Vice presidential candidate.

He said; “Obasanjo is a man who can never be pleased.  His principle of

life is; if it is not his way, it must not be another person's way.

“Even if President Jonathan gives Obasanjo his blood today, he (Obasanjo)

cannot change  because he is already neckdeep in the APC agenda, with his

eyes on the vice presidential ticket of the party.
“Therefore, no amount of visits by PDP governors can make him change his

mind about President Jonathan,  whom he hates not because he has not

performed, but because he (Jonathan) did not hand over his presidency to

him.”
