Ekiti Grassroots Movement (EGM), has called on Senator Abiodun Olujimi and others in the People’s Democratic Party, PDP to work in tandem with the former governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose to restructure the party ahead 2022 general election.
Reacting to the Appeal Court Judgement that was delivered on the party’s Congress in favour of Fayose’s group yesterday, the Director of Media and Publicity Secretary of the group, Adebisi Adeola said what is expected from all party leaders is to put premium on genuine reconciliation and how to take its rightful leadership position in 2022.
“Without mincing word, the APC has failed in its responsibilities to deliver good governance to Ekiti people.
“Though intra-party conflict is inevitable in political democratisation of Nigeria, the players must find solace in unity to winning elections against all interests.”
Adeola, who described a political party as a family which cannot function without a patriarchy, said Fayose has paid his dues in PDP to take the leadership position of PDP in Ekiti and Nigeria as a whole.
“Apart from being an Executive Governor under PDP for two-term in the state, Fayose’s legacies in Ekiti in terms of infrastructural development, inclusive government and People’s oriented programmes while serving Ekiti cannot be underestimated”.
Calling on distinguished Senator Olujimi and other leaders of the party to work in tandem with Fayose to produce the next governor of Ekiti State in 2022, Adeola said nobody can live in isolation.
“Winning elections should be a major focus now.
“Ekiti is predominantly PDP state. With the level of insecurity and poor Infrastructural development under the APC, the PDP should maximise the opportunity to provide a virile platform that will embrace all interests”.
He appealed to the former governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose to embrace all aggrieved party leaders and allow a level playing ground in the administration of the party, saying only inclusiveness can guarantee the party’s victory in 2022.
Adeola said the Appeal Court Judgement should be seen by both factions as No Victor, no Vanquished
