Support for Sheriff: Fayose Apologizes to PDP

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose

Ekiti State Governor,  Ayodele Fayose has confessed he made a terrible “mistake”, for introducing Ali Modu Sheriff to the Peoples Democratic Party  (PDP ) and supporting him to become National Chairman of the party.

Fayose confessed to the “blunder” which he said has brought the party to its current and seemingly unending leadership crisis when he hosted the team of Raymond Dokpesi in Ado Ekiti.

‎A statement issued by Omor Bazuaye, Media Aide to Raymond Dokpesi, said Fayose expressed confident in Dokpesi’s capacity to lead the party if elected as the National Chairman of the party.‎

Fayose, who joined the from the border town of Ita Ogbolu in Ondo; leading it to Ado-Ekiti apologised before the party leaders, taking responsibility for his action.

He said his experience with Sheriff has taught him a bitter lesson in politics never to front or stick out his neck that deep any more for any person.

“We worked for Ali Modu Sheriff.  It was a mistake and I take responsibility. I am not going to carry anyone on my head anymore”, he said.

Fayose said what is happening in PDP was regrettable, lamenting attempts by few persons to muzzle the opinion of majority of others.

He said rather than seek solution to the crisis, many prefer to distract the party; paying lip service to the peace process.‎

Fayose is however optimistic that PDP’s dry bone, {making copious reference to verses in the Bible,} would rise again.

“Tough times don’t last, tough people do. PDP will triumph and rise again.”

He said that’s why he sees what Dokpesi is doing as a new beginning for PDP.

Fayose said even though he has no doubt Dokpesi has what it takes to lead PDP, his position is that God should provide a leader amongst all the candidates that have shown interest in the job.

Fayose wants the vacancy for National Chairman keenly contested as against a situation where a few persons would sit down somewhere and decide.

He said delegates from Ekiti would come to Port Harcourt with open hearts.‎
