The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the South-West has called for the resignation of the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
The zonal chapter of the PDP said he should do this to save the state from alleged ridicule and embarrassment.
Justifying its reason for the governor’s resignation, the opposition party through its Zonal Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. Kayode Babade, alleged that the governor had lost grip over the state.
But, responding, Dr. Fayemi spoke through his Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mr. Funminiyi Afuye and Director of Publicity of S/W Action Congress of Nigeria, Mr. Ayo Afolabi, saying the PDP was relishing in masturbation.
Describing members of the opposition party as political lepers that cannot be cured, they lamented that PDP had plunged the state into chaos, rot and utter darkness which Kayode administration is trying to put back in shape.
They continued: “The governor did not obtain his mandate from these infidels and uncircumcised,” so they lack moral justification to ask for his resignation.
Mr. Afuye added that if the PDP members are orchestrating violence in Ekiti, the governor would not be distracted.
“Ekiti people have total confidence in him. He is busy constructing roads and putting things that had been destroyed by the PDP.
“But, these may not be appreciated by these infidels who had brought the state into infamy. When they were there, what did they do?” he asked.
PDP, in its statement said the refusal of Local Government workers to heed the governor’s directive that they should resume work on Monday and the alleged “lacing of all Local Council secretariats with juju rituals, which prevented even the Local Councils Caretaker Committee members from entering the councils was a further confirmation of the governor’s rejection by Ekiti people.
The statement added: “With his rejection by Ekiti people, especially teachers, local government workers, health workers, judiciary workers and students, Fayemi should be honourable enough to resign and let a more competent person take his place.”
The PDP, which described Fayemi’s two years in Ekiti as “years of locusts,” alleged that the governor had already lost every moral right to continue as governor of the state.
The party said it was worried that all primary health institutions in Ekiti State are grounded and people are dying of cholera, yet the governor is saying he does not give a damn and that the health workers can remain on strike for two years.
