Former PDP Publicity Secretary Adeyeye Dumps Party

The Ekiti State Deputy Governor on Tuesday emerged victor of the PDP governorship primary held in AdoEkiti, the state capital.

This comes barely two days after he lost the party's ticket to the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti won by incumbent deputy governor Kolapo Olusola. The governor's remark were made Wednesday while fielding questions in the course of a programme anchored by the State's radio and television stations in Ado-Ekiti.

A former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party and aspirant in the just concluded governorship primaries of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, has said he is defecting to another party in order to realise his ambition of providing rapid development in the state.

However, he is yet to reveal his next political platform.

"I can't be part of enslavement, I can't be part of corruption, I can't be part of those keeping our people in poverty but spend billions of naira on chartered flights to Abuja every year and will be riding okada (commercial motorcycle) at home". The Minister, according to a statement by his Media Office, said he is confident that whoever emerges as the APC fl ag bearer in the party's rescheduled primary tomorrow, would be more acceptable to the Ekiti electorate. I did not hide my preference for my deputy among those seeking to succeed me as governor in our party, so, I was surprised at his reaction.

"If it was him that I supported for the position, would he have done that?"

He said: "I will not, because of party affiliation, allow Ekiti to be destroyed".

The party also commended the chairman of the electoral panel, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State for ensuring that the nomination process of its candidate for the poll was transparent. Under the leadership of Prince Uche Secondus, the PDP has thrown impunity, imposition and interferences in electoral process into the dustbin of history. "I have nothing personal against anybody and Olusola has been loyal, effective and committed as my deputy and I can not repay him in a bad manner", he said.

The politician, who is a presidential aide, accused the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun led National Working Committee (NWC) of doctoring the exercise to favour a particular aspirant believed to be the former governor of the state and current Minister of Solid Minerals, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
