The PDP faction loyal to former Ekiti Governor Ayodele Fayose has noted that the party would no longer be suspending members.
This was made known by the Chairman of the faction of the Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, loyal to former Governor Ayodele Fayose, Mr. Bisi Kolawole. Kolawole, on Monday, said that the party would for now refrain from suspending members.
He noted that the PDP is now more focused on reconciling aggrieved members in order to expand its membership base.
Speaking further, Kolaole noted that his agenda was to unite the party and, with that, reposition it to win the 2022 governorship poll in the interest of Ekiti people.
This report was contained in a statement titled, ‘It is bye-bye to APC in Ekiti come 2022 – PDP Chairman’, signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Bola Agboola, in Ado Ekiti.
Kolawole was quoted in the statement to have said: “We are not going to suspend any member unless such member proves beyond every reasonable doubt that he or she is against the success of the PDP.”
“The PDP in Ekiti State had been polarised over leadership crisis between a group loyal to Fayose and another loyal to Senator Biodun Olujimi, which has resulted in parallel congresses at the ward, local government and state levels.”
