Ayodele Fayose has received serious tongue-lashing for calling Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state a baby governor.

An earful was given to the former governor of Ekiti by Hosea Agboola, a one-time Senate deputy chief whip.

Agboola said Fayose is more of a liability than an asset to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the southwest, Punch reports.

The former senator claimed that throughout Fayose's leadership of the party in the region, he was not able to get one member in the National Assembly.

“...of what political value and relevance is Fayose, who failed woefully to install a successor when he was leaving as an incumbent governor of Ekiti. Ekiti PDP under him became a shadow of itself as he could not produce a single house of assembly member in that state.”

Speaking on the gains of Makinde's leadership, Agboola said under the rule of the Oyo governor, the state has experienced a complete positive turn-around.

His words:

“Today, Oyo is witnessing all-round development in education, health, infrastructure, economy, and lots more. Makinde was able to resolve the crisis in the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, and also ensured it is now the sole property of the state."

Meanwhile, Fayose had maintained that Makinde of Oyo state was not his leader in the Southwest PDP.

The former Ekiti state governor made the disclosure on Sunday, February 14, during his appearance on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

Fayose admitted that though the party’s structure made Makinde a leader, being the only PDP governor in the southwest, the Oyo governor, however, can't come out and say he was his leader.

The PDP chieftain went on to state that he is not in a tussle of leadership with Makinde, adding that he respects his office.
