Clement Awoyelu, the pioneer chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti state, has said there is an urgent need to reclaim the party from Governor Ayo Fayose.

According to Awoyelu, the need to reclaim the party from Fayose is as a result of the governor’s overbearing nature and lack of respect for the party’s constitution, The Punch reports.

Awoyelu, a member of the Board of Trustees of PDP, made this known while addressing an audience during the swearing in of the Chief Williams Ajayi-led faction of the state executive committee of the party in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, May 19.

A Federal High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti had on Tuesday, May 17, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to recognise and deal with the faction pending the final determination of a suit before it.

It restrained the commission and the PDP national secretariat from relating with the faction loyal to the Governor Fayose where Gboyega Oguntuase had emerged as the state chairman.

Clement Awoyelu, the pioneer chairman of the PDP in Ekiti state, has said there is an urgent need to reclaim the party from Gov Ayo Fayose.
Speaking further, Awoyelu said he had no personal grudge with Fayose, but maintained that reclaiming the party from the governor remained the best option to save the party from imminent destruction.

He said: “I have been in the party politics for more than 50 years and that is why we are trying to restructure our party. We will never sleep until we reclaim our party from Governor Fayose. We are ready to correct all the wrongs in our party.

“I have grouse with Fayose in two ways: One, I have never seen a state where governor will be the one to appoint councillorship candidates. This is wrong because it is the duty of the party leaders. He disobeyed the party guidelines.

“Secondly, the governor has appropriated the party to himself. The governor has not attended any meeting at the party secretariat, instead he relocated the party to his house in Afao Ekiti. This, we will not tolerate.

“I have been a member of the PDP National Executive Committee since 1998. Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo , Umaru Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan were attending meeting at Wadata Plaza in Abuja. But this is not so under Governor Fayose.

“Governor Fayose was not in Ekiti when we formed PDP. He didn’t know anything about PDP. And we thank God that the election of the new SEC and the verdict of the court have shown that God and the people have rejected the governor. We have reclaimed the state from him.

“As SEC of the party, you have nothing to fear because the court had validated your victories. You should ensure unity in our party and bring every aggrieved member on board.”

Governor Fayose had been earlier been accused of causing confusion in the PDP ahead of the Southwest zonal congress of the party billed for Akure, Ondo state.

The accusation came from the national leadership of the party who spoke through its national secretary, Professor Wale Oladip
