- Governor Fayose has been asked to apologise for insulting Bode George
- The call was made by the PDP in Lagos
- Going further, PDP said Fayose has incited youths against party elders
In what can be termed as another political controversy, former Ekiti state Governor Ayodele Fayose, has been given a seven-day ultimatum to apologise for his 'unwarranted attack' on party elders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos state.
The ultimatum was given by the party in Lagos.
PDP accused Fayose of inciting the youths against elders of the party, particularly former national deputy chairman, Chief Olabode George.
According to Taofik Gani, Lagos PDP publicity secretary, the former governor will be declared a persona non grata in the activities of the chapter.
The Nation reports that Gani said Fayose should be regarded as a jester because his political relevance is waning.
However, in a swift response, chairman of the party in Lagos, Deji Doherty, disowned the statement credited to the party.
According to him, Gani must have made such a statement from a beer parlour because no responsible state chapter of the party, including the Lagos chapter, can insult Fayose, who is loved across board.
Recall that Legit.ng reported that ex-governor Fayose counselled that George, should be sent on “political retirement”.
According to him, this would help the party to make progress and win elections in Lagos state.
Fayose said this in a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, titled, ‘Lagos PDP must retire Bode George to make progress, urges support for BOG to win senatorial bye-election – Fayose’.
In another report, Legit.ng reported that Kehinde Odebunmi, factional chairman of the PDP in Ekiti said he would not allow Fayose hijack the party in the state.
He said this while featuring on a local programme, The Conversation, aired on New Cruse 92.7 FM, Ikere-Ekiti.
