The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has in a statement on Sunday gave former Ekiti governor, Ayodele Fayose, a seven-day ultimatum to apologise to Bode George for what it described as a deliberate unwarranted vituperation on party elders.
The Lagos PDP alleged the former Governor had incited party youths against PDP elders in his actions, particularly Chief Olabode George, who is a former National Deputy Chairman of the party.
They highlighted other party elders in the Southwest to include Senator Yinka Omilani, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, Gen. Tajudeen Olanrewaju, Chief Yemi Farombi, Senator Alabi, Clement Awoyelu and Senator Olofintuyi.
The Publicity Secretary of Lagos PDP, Taofik Gani said in the statement that Fayose will be declared a persona non grata in the activities of the chapter, unless he desists from offering divisive advice.
He said; “PDP should regard Fayose as a jester because the candidates he had dismissed in recent times, including Senator Biodun Olujimi and Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, later triumphed at the polls.”
Gani described the former governor as a confusionist and agent provocateur in politics, adding that his activities are inimical to the advancement of Southwest PDP.
He said, “Fayose is “Indeed a disgrace and negative role model to the younger ones”.
Gani stressed; “We are nearing very important elections in the state to take us into winning Lagos State in 2023 general elections. We need all togetherness and complementary efforts of the old, young, male, female.
“It is thus shocking that a supposed leader would come to our state to ‘tear’ us apart rather than give positive and progressive uniting advice to us. We will hold Fayose responsible for any future election loss in Lagos State and indeed the SouthWest.”
