Ex-Governor Ayodele Fayose, has said the Special Adviser to President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu and former Minister of Works, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, are not wanted in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) .
Fayose said the PDP is not thirsty to have the duo defected into the party despite their differences with Governor Kayode Fayemi, “because they have no electoral values”.
Ojudu and Adeyeye, who are members of the APC are locked in a rift with Fayemi over the governor’s alleged dictatorship and victimisation of members of the party.
Based on this feud, when asked whether the aggrieved APC leaders will join the PDP while appearing on a radio programme in Ado Ekiti, Ojudu discountenanced the speculation, saying he would never contemplate such move.
Ojudu said ;
“If I die and they put PDP flag on my coffin, I will wake up, tear it and go back to sleep”.
Enraged by the derisive comment, Fayose, in a statement, on Thursday, by his Media Aide,
Lere Olayinka said:
“Apart from them not having electoral values, they are blackmailers and individuals whose needs are insatiable. Above all, God’s anger has caught up with them in their inordinate quest for power”.
The former governor described Senator Ojudu as a political “opportunist”, who is always fighting for his own selfish gains, saying; “he fought against Niyi Adebayo, myself, Segun Oni and he is fighting Fayemi now. Who will please him in Ekiti?”, Fayose asked.
Speaking further, the former governor added :
”He (Ojudu) is political opportunist, a senator by accident, who is always striving to destroy any government in which he can’t have his way.
“Therefore, he can continue with his usual voyage of political blackmail, that is his business and that of his Coronavirus infected APC party.
“As for us in the PDP, we are not interested in making any gain from the reckless political life of a man who does nothing other than to destroy the government of Ekiti”.
Also, a chieftain of the APC and former Deputy Governor, Surveyor Abiodun Aluko, appealed to the aggrieved APC leaders to embrace reconciliation efforts and allow Fayemi to consolidate and deliver the dividends of democracy to Ekiti people .
