Lagos PDP chairman angry with Gov. Fayose over flirt with Tinubu

Lagos PDP Chairman, Otunba Segun Adewale aka Aeroland

Lagos state Chairman
of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Otunba
Segun Adewale
has expressed his displeasure over Ekiti state governor Ayodele Fayose’s unbridled romance with
leaders of the ruling party, the All
Progressive Congress
(APC).
 In his reaction to an advertorial placed in
the Punch Newspaper on the 29th
March, 2017 by the Ekiti State Governor to celebrate and eulogies  Asiwaju
Bola Tinubu
at 65, Adewale
described such romance as unfortunate and a major blow on the confidence of the
grassroots members and supporters of the PDP.

In a release made
available to journalists signed by the chairman, he lamented how some leaders
of the party, including Fayose, have
completely sold out to individuals within the ruling party at the detriment of
the members. “I am surprised that
Governor Ayodele Fayose the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum could throw
cautions to the wind and rub his alleged alliance with the leadership of the
ruling party in the southwest on our faces. As a leader and beneficiary of the
PDP goodwill, I expect him to clearly understand that members and supporters
are looking up to him and such unguided actions demoralize them”.

Continuing, Adewale
noted “No doubt, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu
paid his dues towards the success of APC in the last general elections. He
deserves the admiration of members of the ruling party for providing a
responsible leadership within his party. I want to advise Governor Fayose to
emulate Bola Tinubu’s team spirit and respect for party organs in his dealings
within the PDP and not embark on actions that may further demoralize our
members. The political sagacity of Tinubu is worthy of study by upcoming
politicians. However, open acknowledgement of Asiwaju doggedness that saw our
party out of power in 2015 is a mockery on the PDP”.
“It will be recalled that Governor Ayodele Fayose
was present at the inauguration of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, Ondo State some
weeks ago and enjoyed the company of APC leaders in attendance while he
neglected the welcoming party and thanksgiving service organized by the good
people of Ondo kingdom in honour of their son, former Governor Segun Mimiko”.
“Unequivocally, the said advertorial is a
confirmation of Governor Fayose’s anti-party activities that have finally come
to fore. I wonder how the APC would have viewed such advertorial for former
President Jonathan by former Goverrnor Fashola or Governor Aregbesola for
instance in the build up to the 2015 general election. Even during the first or
second republic, no opposition leader openly embraced Pa Awolowo despite awos
popularity, achievements and sagacity. The fact that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu have
done very well for himself and his political party is not an excuse for
Governor Fayose’s demonstration of impunity and disregard to party loyalty”.

“It is an aberration for Governor Fayose to
publicly acknowledge the role played by Asiwaju in destroying PDP that made
Fayose what he is today. It is impossible to also forget the role played by
Asiwaju Tinubu in the emergence of President Buhari as the Nigerian President,
a decision that has brought untold economic hardship on Nigerians. Obviously,
the choice of President Buhari wasn’t in the interest of the people but for
personal aggrandizement of a few politicians”
Adewale insisted
that the Fayose’s action is an open
confrontation and an attempt to undermine the PDP in the southwest. He appealed to members of the Party to remain
steadfast saying “I wish to
sincerely appeal to our members not to be deterred by actions targeted at
damping their spirit as the storm is over already. What we are seeing presently
are last minutes efforts by a few wolf in sheep’s skin struggling to have a
safe landing now that the PDP has been returned to the People by Senator Ali
Modu Sheriff, the National Chairman”
he concluded.
