Fayose’s comeback bid to PDP shameful – Group
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?”
