ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Ayodele Fayose, a former Governor of Ekiti state has reacted to the recent development and suspension of some prominent members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Fayose said that the PDP National Working Committee (NWC), should be in a very sober and reflective mood after losing a national election.
He stated this via his verified Twitter handle on Friday, saying that the party can now pick the pieces and face tomorrow as we bid Ayu farewell.
He stated: “Imagine what they would have done if Atiku had won! They would have been more than heinous politically. Should we thank God Atiku lost?
“At least, as it is now, the party can now pick the pieces and face tomorrow as we bid Ayu farewell.
“Think of this…lmagine a PDP National Working Committee that should be in very sober and reflective mood after losing a national election, going after leaders perceived to be their enemies, including a sitting governor in the party and suspending them!”
It would be recalled that the PDP National Chairman Iyorchia Ayu has been suspended by the party.
The suspension of Ayu was effected by the Ward Executive of the party in Igyorov Ward of Gboko Local Government Area, LGA, of Benue state.
But, on Thursday, the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party reviewed and reversed the suspensions of some of its chieftains.
The members whose suspension was lifted include former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose; former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim; Prof. Dennis Ityavyar, Dr. Aslam Aliyu, and H.E Ibrahim Shema.
