Group Alerts PDP Leadership Over Fayose's Excesses

A group, Concerned South-West Professionals(CSP), has called on the national headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to call former Ekiti State governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, to order, saying his antics were capable of ruining the party in the South-West geopolitical zone.

According to the group, the former governor is on assignment in the South-West to create division within PDP in order to actualize the presidential ambition of his new godfather in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Bola Tinubu.

In a statement released in Lagos and signed by its publicity secretary, Alhaji Ismail Adeyemi, the group said any attempt by the national leadership of the PDP to merely look on while Fayose decimates PDP in the South-West would not augur well for the party.

The statement read: “An ex-governor who could not deliver his state to PDP during the last governorship election in Ekiti is going about, hobnobbing with the opposition, casting aspersions on the only PDP governor in the South-West, Mr. Seyi Makinde, and organising parallel congresses.

“Nigerians cannot have forgotten how Fayose consistently opposed former Governor Olusegun Mimiko while the latter served as chairman of the PDP Governors Forum towards the end of his (Mimiko’s) tenure and succeeded in driving him out of the party with his recklessness and bigotry.

” Fayose treated Mimiko, who had been in politics long before him and was his senior in age, with utter scorn, assassinating his character and pouring invectives on him.

“Yet when Fayose succeeded Mimiko as chairman of Southern PDP Governors Forum, nobody struggled with him for that particular position.

“For him now to be going about maligning Governor Seyi Makinde beats the imagination, although we are not surprised because his history of dictatorship, crudity and self-aggrandizement is well known.

“Fayose is on record as pouring invectives on elders of the party, some of whom are old enough to be his father, and it is astounding that members of the NEC and NWC of PDP have kept quiet while he continues to stoke divisions and rancour in the party.”

CSP added that governance is not a matter of age, as many governors have parents and even grandparents but everybody respects their authority.

“By undermining the governor of Oyo State, Fayose is insulting the party executives as a collective.

“He should be called to order before his divide and rule tactics cause chaos in PDP,” the group said.

Crisis: Ogun PDP Factions Reunite, Vow To Reclaim Ogun

Published

PDP

The warring factions of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State led by the late Senator Buruji Kashamu and a former House of Representatives, Oladipupo Adebutu, have resolved their differences and reunited.

 

 

After over a decade of crisis and court orders, loyalists of both Kashamu and Adebutu who are the two major factions on Wednesday, reunited and bowed to reclaim the state in the coming 2023 elections.

 

 

The factions met during a reunion meeting held at the party secretariat in Abeokuta.

 

 

The leaders of the two factions resolved to work together towards strengthening the party for the 2023 elections.

 

 

Leading the Kashamu faction, Segun Seriki, declared that the party will henceforth operate under Sikirullahi Ogundele-led executive of the PDP, thereby collapsing the other faction which paraded Samson Bamgbose as the Chairman.

 

 

He expressed regret that the crisis had robbed off PDP the chances of returning to power since 2011 when the party was defeated upon expiration of Gbenga Daniel’s tenure.

 

 

Seriki called on party members to be committed to the reunion and work towards rebuilding the party for victory in the 2023 election.

 

Bamgbose applauded the leaders of the party for achieving reconciliation of the warring factions of the PDP.

 

He asked the PDP leaders and supporters to be ready for the battle to unseat the ruling party in 2023.

 

He said “We are going to the battlefront. We must be ready and win.”

 

The party Chairman, Sikirullahi Ogundele, said the reunion marked the beginning of a new relationship that would drive the party to power in 2023.

 

 

He said, “I am happy that the PDP of 2003 is now back. We are now together in harmony, looking forward to having a united PDP in Ogun State.

 

 

“We are going to get back our mandate from the misrule of the APC, a party that has no blueprint.

 

 

“They just wake up in the morning and embark on any project that comes to their head. They give water or road where not needed.

 

The PDP is the best party so far and we are winning in 2023.”

 

A former spokesperson to former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, and Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, expressed happiness over the reunion of the factions.

 

 

Okupe, however, cautioned leaders in the party that “there will still be a fight, there cannot be equality. Disagreement is not disloyalty, if we don’t disagree, we can’t agree to move forward. There is a way to go about everything.”

 

 

Adebutu in his remarks enjoined party members to work in harmony, adding that the party has come as the alternative choice.

 

 

He said, “The people of Ogun State need a platform to rescue them, the PDP has come to rescue Ogun residents and Nigerians from the sufferings by the APC.”

Bisoye Fagade Takes Lagelu By Storm, Unfolds Plans For Oyo Development

Lagelu

Abisoye Fagade, the 47-year-old Nigerian marketing communication professional, is a man of many parts.

 

 

And if words on the streets of Ibadan are anything to go by, Fagade has his eyes fixed on two goals, his hospitality outfit, and politics. While his hospitality outfit, Alexia’s Place, situated in a serene environment in the Opebi area of Ikeja has continued to grow steam since its inception, the founder and CEO of Sodium Brand Solutions has been closing ranks in the Oyo state All Progressive Congress.

 

 

Fagade became popular in Oyo state politics when he made his entrance many years ago with the slogan, Oyo si ma dun (Oyo will be great) and now, the astute professional seems ready to return to politics.

 

 

To show he has his eyes fixed on the ball, Fagade was recently spotted in the Lagelu area of Oyo state where he began the process of reincarnating Lagelu in Oyo State politics. Fagade returned to his constituency to listen to his constituents and begin strategy towards taking Oyo state to an enviable height.

 

 

Speaking at a grand reception organised in his honour by the APC leadership of the party, Fagade said, “I must state here that I have personally taken up the gauntlet to join other well-meaning citizens in promoting the ideas of Progressive politics which we are known for in this part of the country.

 

The project has since commenced as we have done a lot to alleviate the suffering of the people, especially at the grassroots through the ‘Oyo Si Maa Dun’ Foundation.

 

 

I’m using this avenue to prepare our minds and encourage all of us to remain optimistic about the future of our dear state and that of our fatherland- Nigeria.

Jerry Gana Laments As He Returns To PDP After 3 Years

Published

Jerry Gana

Former Minister of Information, Professor Jerry Gana, has alleged that there is no government in Nigeria.

 

Gana said this when he, alongside many of his supporters, returned the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday.

 

 

In March 2018, Gana, a member of the Board of Trustees of the PDP, had dumped the party for the Social Democratic Party.
But addressing the party members in Bida, Niger State, during a reception to mark his return to the party, Gana said the country is nose-diving and needs urgent rescue.

 

 

Prof. Gana said, “Today is not a day for lecture. It is not a day for campaigns. We just want to rejoice that we are back together solidly; and we are going to work together solidly, that we are going to work together effectively, that we are going to campaign powerfully.

 

“I tell you, we are going to go around strategically, in such a way that the All Progressives Congress (APC) so called government, whether in Niger state; is there a Government in Niger State? Because many people are not aware, or at the Centre? At federal level, we don’t even have a Government.”

 

Earlier, Party leaders from across the three Senatorial zones assured the party faithful that the PDP is ready to take over Niger and salvage it from the “deflated state that it is under the ruling APC”
