Lere Olayinka, Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, to Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has reiterated that his principal will dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he dump PDP if Ali Modu Sheriff wins at the supreme He also stated that the outcome of the governorship elections in Edo and Ondo states were lessons learned and enough warning to work hard to forestall defeat in future elections
Olayinka spoke in reaction to reports that Fayose had removed the name and logo of the party from his campaign office situated in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti state capital.
In a chat with the Nigerian Pilot on Wednesday, the aide said Fayose has the right
to channel his own political course.
“The first thing is: the governor is one person among every other in the party. Don’t forget that we have elections in 2018. Most of these others don’t have elections till 2019.
“You should also have a mind what happened in Ondo and Edo States. A yoruba proverb says when someone falls in a pit, others behind who see the incident learn.
He said in his statement “We don’t have much time; we won’t wait and allow them mess us up like Ondo and Edo cases where PDP lost and Sheriff’s camp was jubilating. These people are too evil and don’t mean well for the party.
“You are also aware of what happened in Delta, the House of Assembly bye election. Sheriff’s people brought someone the governor didn’t know. The governor had to move his candidate to Accord Party and Accord won that election.”
