Fayose: Why I insist that PDP's NWC should resign
Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, said Tuesday that he had evidence to prove that the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Adamu Mua'zu, sold out during the last presidential poll.
Fayose, in a statement in Ado-Ekiti by his Special Assistant on Public Communications , Mr. Lere Olayinka, said he had no apology for calling for the resignation of the members of the National Working Committee (NWC).
“I have no apology on my position on the NWC because their responsibility as a party does not take away their failure in the last general election,” the governor said.
He challenged the NWC to provide evidence of money released to him to prosecute the last elections.
“Only N30 million was received for the last two elections and to the glory of the almighty God and support of Ekiti people, we won all elections outrightly. I therefore demand for the mode with which money was released to me by the NWC,” Fayose said.
The governor reiterated his commitment to the PDP, pointing out that if it remained only him in the party, he would continue to defend its course.
“Left to me, I will continue to defend the course of this party because some people are born to stand up at difficult times, and I believe I am one of such people born to stand up for the PDP at this difficult time,” he said.
“In saner climes, when a war commander leads his troops to an embarrassing defeat, such commander does not need anyone to tell him that he needs to leave the war front for another commander to take over.”
Fayose described the attack on his person by the NWC as unfortunate,saying it was sad that the NWC members, especially the National Chairman were refusing to allow new people to manage the party after managing it into its first national electoral failure.
He said, “How do we explain the PDP losing so scandalously in Bauchi State, despite the presence of the national chairman, Federal Capital Territory minister and the state governor?
“I am even more particular about the national chairman because he sold the party to the opposition. I have cogent evidence of his unholy alliance with the opposition before the elections and if they go any further, I will expose all his underhand deals.
“I want to say it again that I have no apology for calling for the resignation of the NWC members, especially the national chairman. After all, someone resigned his position as the national chairman for Mu'azu to assume office.
“Lastly, let me say it categorically that they can only attempt to destroy this party for the moment, not forever. Sooner or later, they will all fade away and PDP will rise again.”
Fayose said he has evidence to prove that the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Adamu Mua'zu, sold out during the last presidential poll.
“I have no apology on my position on the NWC because their responsibility as a party does not take away their failure in the last general election,” he insisted.
