Ekiti PDP Reps Caucus disowns call for State Exco dissolution, restates to Fayose

The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) five House of Representatives
members from Ekiti State have expressed their confidence in the
leadership of the Chief Gboyega Oguntuase-led State Exco of the party,
dissociating themselves from the Saturday meeting of some stakeholders
held at the instance of the Senate Minority Leader, Biodun Olujimi,
which called for dissolution of the State Party Exco.

The House of Representatives members, Kehinde Agboola (Ekiti North I),
Thaddeus Aina (Ekiti North II), Ayo Oladimeji (Ekiti Central I), Segun
Adekola (Ekiti South I) and Akin Awodumila (Ekiti South II) also
reiterated their loyalty to the immediate past Governor of the State,
Mr. Ayodele Fayose, saying; “there is no leadership vacuum in the PDP
in Ekiti State, those desperate for political leadership should wait
for their time.”

They called on the Senate leadership to call Senator Olujimi to order
so as to avoid crisis capable of affecting the party’s chances in the
2019 general elections.

The House of Representatives members said; “While we agree that
individuals or groups have rights to hold meetings, we are miffed that
Senator Olujimi was taking her selfish agenda of collapsing the party
structures to the extreme.

“We were not consulted before the meeting was held and most of those
who attended the meeting were those who worked against our party in
the July 14 governorship election. Some of them were even governorship
candidates of other parties, and collectively, they could not get up
to 1,000 votes in the election.

“Also, leaders like Chief Bola Olu-Oju who attended the meeting
innocently have started dissociating themselves from its outcome and
by Saturday, this week, a proper meeting of stakeholders will be held
in the State.

“Most importantly, is Senator Olujimi also claiming leadership of the
PDP in the South-west since they she is the ranking elected official
in Ekiti State and the South-West?”

We therefore call on our party’s members and teeming supporters to
disregard the meeting and its outcome, bearing in mind that it was a
gathering of dissidents, most of whom contested the July 14
governorship election under other parties with some of them getting
less than 200 votes.”
