Lagos PDP to Fayose: Purge yourself of unsolicited, divisive advice or else…

Gives former Ekiti gov seven days to apologise

THE People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Lagos State Chapter, has given former governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose, seven days to apologise “for the deliberate unwarranted vituperation” on party elders in the state.

The demand for apology was contained in a statement by PDP spokesman in the state, Taofik Gani.

According to the statement, the advice Fayose gave could incite the youth against PDP chieftains in Lagos.

Naija Times had reported how Fayose had taken a swipe at the former deputy national chairman of the PDP, Chief Bode George, and asked him to leave the political arena for the comfort of his room to play with his grandchildren.

The former Ekiti State governor had said, during the inauguration of PDP Campaign Committee for the Lagos-East senatorial by-election, that the party should send Bode George on “political retirement.”

According to a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, titled ‘Lagos PDP must retire Bode George to make progress, Fayose said such would help the party to make progress and win elections in Lagos.

But the PDP spokesman urged Fayose not to be a negative role model to the younger ones in the party.

“Fayose will be declared Persona non grata in all her indoor and outdoor activities from Monday October q2, 2020, unless he, Fayose, purges himself of the grave nuisance value arising from the unsolicited and divisive advice,” Gani said.

He urged Fayose to desist from all provocative comments against party elders or any action inimical to the advancement of the PDP in the South West.

“Only a sadist, mischief-maker or rooky politician, will decide to peel healing wounds, like creating more political foes, at a period very close to major elections.

“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 complimentary efforts possible 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 South West,” the PDP said .”
