Fayose responsible for our electoral misfortunes, says Ekiti PDP

Ekiti Peoples’ Democratic Party stakeholders have blamed the immediate governor, Ayodele Fayose, for the abysmal performance of the party in the last elections in the State.

The stakeholders said Fayose’s alleged dictatorial tendency and high handedness in running the affairs of the party without consultation caused the party’s defeat.
They comprised former house of representatives, serving house of assembly members and party members across the 16 local government of 177 wards in Ekiti.


They further added that Fayose’s divide and rule tactics to maximize his selfish interest destabilise the State Assembly, thus, snowballed into the party losing control of the Local Government.
The allegations were contained in a report jointly signed by PDP Ekiti State Repositioning Committee Chairman and Secretary Hon. Kehinde Odebunmi and Hon. Oladipo Ebenezer respectively and presented to concerned Party’s Stakeholders on Thursday at Ifaki-Ekiti.

The stakeholders said the State Working Committee of the party was a titular head who was never in control of the party’s affairs but being teleguided by the former governor.
They called on the aggrieved members of the party to return, saying they would be given sense of belonging unlike before when elective positions were decided by a single person.
Following extensive deliberation on the report submitted, the stakeholders issued a communique signed by Dr. Jimi Oke.

According to the communique, the stakeholders berated imposition of candidates on the party by Fayose, saying that has bred indiscipline and consequently caused low morale among the disciplined members.
They called on the State Executive Committee to disclose the status of the new party’s secretariat which is under construction, stressing that information revealed that both the old and new buildings had been allegedly sold.
“We submit that imposition of candidate in our party, PDP is inimical to the progress our party. That this has bred indiscipline among members and has caused low morale among the discipline members.
“That the former governor, Ayo Fayose campaigned against the PDP and its candidate in the last election and he has not been checked or sanctioned by the party’s NWC.
“That the stakeholders resolved that the status of the party secretariat which is under construction should be disclosed by the SWC of our party to all party members in Ekiti State.
“That the PDP were all aware is the party to beat in Ekiti State but has to be restructured and allow discipline to remain supreme”, it said.

They, however, called on the party’s National Working Committee to check and sanction Fayose to have allegedly campaigned against the party’s candidate, Senator Biodun Olujimi in the last National Assembly election. (The Nation)

I heard EFCC are coming to ransack my house for Atiku election money, I’ll be waiting for them - Fayose
Former Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has said that he is aware that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is targeting himself as well as some People’s Democratic Party (PDP) members ahead of the general elections.
He stated that the agency was after him and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar over “election money”.
Fayose said this via his Twitter account Thursday night.
The tweet reads: “Just heard that some officials of @officialEFCC are in Ekiti to invade my residence in Afao Ekiti early morning tomorrow.
“They are coming to search my house for @atiku election money. @officialEFCC, I’m here and waiting.”
President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will slug it out with Atiku on Saturday.
Earlier, the ruling party raised alarm of cash for votes in circulation.
The party claimed the PDP had ordered distribution of money across the country.
A statement by National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said: ‘We caution Nigerians and all involved in the electoral process not to be influenced by huge money the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is moving around to buy votes and compromise the system.
“Our future should not be mortgaged to the leaders of PDP who are using our commonwealth they stole over 16 years to seek a return to power.”

Politics: I said it that presidentcy cabal would postpone the election because they knew they can’t win – Fayose

I said it that presidentcy cabal would postpone the election because they knew they can’t win – Fayose 
Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has disclosed that his tip off about the plan of the presidency cabal to postpone the elections in order to rig the election has finally come to reality.
Addressing a press conference on Saturday in Abuja, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu said the presidential election was shifted to February 23 while the governorship was rescheduled for March 9.
Yakubu explained that the shift was due to problems of logistics.
Reacting, Fayose claimed the shift was because cabal in the presidency knew President Muhammadu Buhari will lose the election.
In a tweet, Fayose, however, warned that the cabal has succeeded in making their matter worse.
He tweeted: “Two days ago, I told Nigerians that the Presidency cabal were considering postponement of the elections because they knew that they can’t win.
“Now I’m vindicated. With this, they have only succeeded in making their situation worse. Nigerians will defeat this tyranny ultimately.”
