The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members from the Ekiti State House of Assembly yesterday said that it was the immediate past governor of the State, Ayodele Fayose that directed them to support Governor Kayode Fayemi in the interest of Ekiti state denying plans to defect to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was made known by the Deputy Speaker, Adewumi Olusegun who briefed newsmen in Ado Ekiti on behalf of other caucus members. He said, “We remain committed members of the PDP as against insinuation in some quarters that we have decamped to APC.”
“We made bold to say that our support for the state governor Dr Kayode Fayemi was at the instance of the out gone Governor Ayodele Fayose who directs that we should co-operate with the governor elect then in the interest of Ekiti State.
“It was on this premise of the advice that we acted, because Ekiti agenda is bigger than any individual or political party.”
Olusegun said that Olujimi is the most eminently qualified at the moment to be in the leadership position as the highest political office holder presently in the state describing those having different opinion as “mischievous, lazy and political jobbers as there is no contest about the leadership of the party since the position is not contested for but earned.”
