Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has described the resignation

of British Labour Party leader, Ed Miliband and Liberal Democrats

leader, Nick Clegg over their parties woeful performance in the last

Thursday general election as a vindication of his call for the

resignation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman,

Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu.
The governor, who said in a release by his Special Assistant on

Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, that he had no

personal score to settle with the PDP National Chairman, added that;

“It is morally wrong for the National Chairman to remain in office

after leading the party into its first national electoral loss.”

Three party leaders in Britain, including opposition Labour Party

leader, Ed Miliband and Liberal Democrats leader, Nick Clegg had

resigned yesterday, after their parties loss in the Thursday general

election.
Reacting, Governor Fayose said; “Alhaji Mu’azu should be honourable

enough to follow the same path as the British LP and Democrats

leaders.
“Mu’azu’s case is even worse than that of the British party leaders,

who resigned immediately their party lost because majority of PDP

members no longer have confidence in his (Mu’azu) leadership and there

is no way a willing leader can be forced on an unwilling followers.”

Speaking further, the governor said; “This is not about any

personality and I am also not operating here on empty boast because

Ekiti State was delivered to the PDP 100 percent.
“Rather, it is about issues. Imagine the PDP not getting up to five

percent of the votes in Bauchi State, the National Chairman’s home

state and someone is still not being honourable enough to resign.

“Haven’t we now seen what operates in saner climes with the

resignation of the British LP and Democrat leaders? Shouldn’t our

party National Chairman also take a cue from this and allow for fresh

minds to steer the ship of the party at this difficult time?

“Methinks leaders in this country should learn from their counterparts

in other climes because like I said earlier, when a war commander

leads his troop 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.”
