Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has urged the Deputy
Governor of Ondo State and Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) candidate in the
Ondo State governorship election, Agboola Ajayi to return to the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to a statement on Saturday, by his Spokesperson, Lere
Olayinka, the former governor, who made this call when the deputy
governor visited him in his Afao Ekiti country home on Friday night,
said “it is important for him (Agboola Ajayi) to put the past behind,
return to PDP and join hands with other leaders in the State to
rebuild the party.”
Fayose said there was no denying the fact that Ajayi is a force to be
reckoned with in the politics of Ondo State, adding that the deputy
governor will thrive better politically in a mainstream and liberal
political party like the PDP.
“What I can tell you like a brother is that the past should be put
behind you and the future should be focused on realistically.
“The best option before you now is to return to the PDP and I am
encouraging you to give it a consideration because you need the party
and the party too needs a strong political character like you,” Fayose
Responding, the deputy governor commended Fayose for his credible
leadership in the Southwest and the country as a whole.
He described Fayose as a clear minded personality, who will say his
mind not minding whose ox is gored.
“I have come to Afao Ekiti at this hour of the day to wish a friend,
brother and leader a happy birthday at 60.
“Fayose is one person I have great respect for and I will continue to
relate with him because he is not someone who will not tell you A when
he means B. His yes is yes and when he says no, he means no,” Ajayi
