The Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday called for the expulsion of a former Governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose over alleged antiparty activities.
According to the Ekiti Chapter of the party, its decision to expel Fayose has been communicated to the National Working Committee (NWC).
The Publicity Secretary of the Caretaker Transition Committee, Olalekan Amerijoye disclosed this to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, on Tuesday.
He said the party would no longer put up with the unwholesome and anti-party activities of Fayose and other leaders of the PDP in the state.
Amerijoye said, “Admittedly, challenges have emerged, as is commonplace within any substantial political entity, occasionally leading to momentary setbacks.
“Disagreements are a natural facet of political growth, yet it would have been incumbent upon us to realize that the greater good should forever eclipse our differences.
“We are expecting the response of the National Working Committee to the majority decision of stakeholders in Ekiti towards the suspension of former governor, Ayodele Fayose from the party.
“The genuine members of Ekiti PDP have resolved from our recent meeting on what should be the punitive measures for people that have turned the party into a commercial venture.
“These resolutions have been communicated to headquarters in Abuja by some individuals who are ‘PDAPC’ and we are patiently waiting for their response in the interest of the PDP in Ekiti.”
