Makinde, Fayose at war over South West PDP leadership

Soji Ajibola, Ibadan

Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde and the former governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose, are at a loggerheads over the control of the soul of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South West.

Governor Makinde was quoted to have said that no matter what Fayose did on the case filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, he would end up in jail.

Fayose was arraigned on an 11-count charge by the EFCC on October 22, 2018, alongside a company, Spotless Investment Ltd.

Makinde, who had pitched his tent with Fayose’s opponents within the PDP in Ekiti State, spoke through one of his aides, Dare Adeleke, saying the former would be jailed.

In the comment circulated through social media platforms, Adeleke, said while responding to comments by Fayose’s spokesperson, Lere Olayinka that; “you and your paymaster are bound for jail. No matter how you twisted (sic) the proceedings, he shall be jailed.”Recall that Makinde has been at loggerheads with Fayose, Hon. Ladi Adebutu, Senator Ademola Adeleke and the PDP Chairman in Lagos State, Deji Doherty, over the control of the PDP in the Southwest.

Chairmen of the party in Ekiti, Osun, Ogun and Lagos States had pitched their tent with Fayose, leaving Governor Makinde with Oyo and Ondo States.

When contacted, Fayose’s spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, described Dare Adeleke as a sycophant seeking to desperately sustain the crumbs he’s getting from Governor Makinde.

He said it was funny that Governor Makinde too appeared to be in his support, saying, “If the governor is not the one who directed Dare Adeleke to be abusing Fayose, he would have called him to order.

“However, we won’t go to gutter with them because we are not in the business of wrestling with pigs.”
