Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, national chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu has challenged Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, to release evidence of his “underhand dealings” with the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Fayose has accused Mu’azu of holding secret meetings with the APC prior to the March 28 presidential polls, insisting that he had evidence to prove that he (Mu’azu) sold their party to the opposition APC before the elections.
In a statement he released through his special assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka last Tuesday, Fayose said he wondered why President Goodlcuk Jonathan would lose Bauchi State to the APC when the party chairman, Adamu Muazu, FCT Mininster and the state governor, Isa Yuguda, are from that state.
Part of the statement reads: “How do we explain the PDP losing so scandalously in Bauchi State, despite the presence of the national chairman, Federal Capital Territory Minister and the state governor? I am even more particular about the national chairman because he sold the party to the opposition. I have cogent evidences of his unholy alliance with the opposition before the elections and if they go any further, I will expose all his underhand deals. I want to say it again that I have no apology for calling for the resignation of the NWC members, especially the national chairman. After all, someone resigned his position as the national chairman for Alhaji Mu’azu to assume office. Lastly, let me say it categorically that they can only attempt to destroy this party for the moment, not forever. Sooner or later, they will all fade away and PDP will rise again.”
But Mu’azu faulted Fayose’s allegation as well as calls from some PDP leaders on him and other members of the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party to resign, after heavy defeat suffered by the party in the just concluded general elections, especially its loss of the presidency.
Mu’azu took to his twitter handle yesterday challenging Fayose to release the claimed evidence against him.
Mu’azu, who is said to be outside the country, mocked Governor Fayose, wondering if his “evidence” would not be like his “evidence” during the presidential campaign, when Fayose said he was sure that the APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, was dying in a London hospital.
