- Segun Adewale says Governor Ayodele Fayose is a mole in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
- The Lagos PDP faction leader says Fayose is a major distraction for the opposition party
- Adewale says Fayose is a hypocrite deceiving the people
Mr Segun Adewale, factional chairman of the Lagos chapter of the Peoples Democtratic Party (PDP), has described the Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose as a two-timing politician.
Adewale describe Fayoswe as a “mole” who is “biting the finger that fed him.”
Adewale made the remark while reacting to claim that he was plotting to unseat Fayose and replace him with former governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi.
In a statement personally signed by the APC chieftain, he dismissed the claim, saying Fayose is a major distraction to the PDP.
Adewale denied having any relationship with Fayemi and any other member of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
NAIJ.com gathered that Adewale is also accused Fayose of being hypocritical, adding that his open romance with some APC kingpins was worrisome.
The statement reads: “My attention has been brought to a spurious claim in a publication, purporting that I, Otunba Segun Adewale (Aeroland) is plotting to unseat the governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, in order to install former governor, Kayode Fayemi, by ‘bribing’ Supreme Court judges with N150 million.
“Ordinarily, I would not have dignified such porous reasoning feigned as publication with a response, as the entire public can verify or vouch that I will never partake in questionable conducts, more else, engage in what is not only against the Nigeria constitution but foully against humanity.
“May I again dismiss abundantly the claims in the said publication, which are not only entirely false, but show the writers lack sense to even think as human beings.
“It is an aberration for a sitting PDP governor of a state, Ayodele Fayose, to be acting a mole in a party that got him into office, a glaring case of biting the fingers that fed him.
“Contrary to the fictitious publication, which was carved in a vendetta scheme against me for rightly exposing governor Fayose on his romance with All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership, I must emphasise that I do not know Kayode Fayemi nor have I met him,” he said.
Daily Post reports that the faction Chairman of the party in Lagos State stressed that he remained a faithful and committed party man, while assuring party leaders of his unwavering loyalty and commitment.
“I am an unrepentant believer in the ideology of the PDP especially under the current leadership of senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the national chairman. I refused to leave the party when it was very easy to do so as an unrecognised member.
“Is it not worrisome that a governor and leader in our party speak from both sides of the mouth on issues that relate to the ruling party?
“At one point, the governor Fayose is busy abusing the President Muhammadu Buhari, alleging former governor Fayemi of corruption but at the same time praising Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who was instrumental to the election of both men into office at every opportunity.
“His open romances with leaders of the ruling party like governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun, visiting governor Akeredolu of Ondo and praising Asiwaju Bola Tinubu are major discouragements that dampen the morale of our members.
“A supposed leader of our party in the southwest but sells out on values and proposition of our party for his selfish personal interests. Whoever dares stand against his attempt to destroy the party is immediately under the attack of his propaganda machinery to the detriment of the party”, he said.
Meawhile, hopes of a peaceful resolution to the drawn out leadership crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) continued to fester on Thursday, when the stakeholders’ peace parley convened by former President Goodluck Jonathan ended without a solution, with one of the parties in the dispute, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, bolting out midway during the meeting.
However, the peace meeting continued without Sheriff who left with his deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, in protest over not being allowed to address the meeting in his capacity as the national chairman of the PDP.
Sheriff said his reason for walking out on the meeting was because he was not recognised to address the gathering as the chairman of the PDP.
NAIJ.com gathered that as part of what transpired during the meeting, which was held in camera at the Shehu Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja, both the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, and the PDP governors present insisted that no one should be addressed as chairman of the party.
