Former governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose, has revealed that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), is likely to witness “more serious turbulence.”
He stated that the current political impasse rocking the party may get “messier” if not quickly resolved.
The former governor tweeted, “I see more serious turbulence for PDP more than ever before. I have been silent all this while hoping that things will get better.
“I advise we do more than we are doing now to resolve this crisis as events in days/weeks ahead may likely get messier. I pray this advice is not ignored.”
Bring to mind that Fayose, alongside Nyesom Wike, contested the PDP presidential primaries in May but lost to Atiku Abubakar, former Vice president.
Fayose, who initially maintained that a Southerner must emerge president in 2023, however, promised to work with the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku, in 2023 elections.
Wike, on the other hand, has long fell out with the party’s leadership structure since losing the primary election to Atiku.
Wike, together with his allies which include four governors; Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), and Samuel Ortom (Benue), have demanded that the Southern and Northern national leaders of the party should swap positions, starting with Iyorchia Ayu, the party national chairman, yielding his position to a Southerner.
