Ekiti PDP crisis looms as Adeyeye part ways with Fayose, resigns appointment with Govt



Nigeria - The crisis rocking the Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), on Thursday got messier, as the former Minister of Works, Prince Dayo Adeyeye , resigned as Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council of the Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti.
When called on telephone, Adeyeye confirmed his resignation to DAILY POST but kept mum on why he took the drastic action.


Some pundits were, however, of the opinion that Adeyeye must have preempted the governor, Chief Ayodele Fayose that he may sack him over controversy surrounding the emergence of the governor’s deputy, Prof Kolapo Olusola as the PDP sole governorship candidate for the 2018 election .
Some pro-Fayose PDP stakeholders, had on Wednesday adopted Olusola as the sole candidate at a meeting held at the government house pavilion in the state capital.
When called to react to Adeyeye’s action, Fayose’s Special Assistant on Public Communications, Mr. Lere Olayinka, said only the
university’s management can react to the development.
“When a pro-chancellor is appointed, he becomes autonomous, because the university itself is autonomous , so we can’t comment on this”, Olayinka said.
Adeyeye decided to sever his political ties with Fayose over the governor’s endorsement of his deputy as the sole candidate for the impending poll.
The action had foreclosed the aspirations of Adeyeye and other aspirants, including former deputy governor, Sikiru Lawal, former Nigeria’s envoy to Canada, Chief Dare Bejide, former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Owoseeni Ajayi and Senator representing Ekiti South at the Senate, Mrs Biodun Olujimi, for the plum job.
The trio of Adeyeye, Bejide and Ajayi branded Fayose’s action as constitutional infraction, saying such alleged illegal action can’t stand.
Adeyeye, in a statement by Ilori Ojo of the Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement(PAAM), described Fayose’s action as a breach of the PDP’s constitution and the provisions of the Electoral Act (as amended).
“See Sections 50 (1), Section 50(2) and 50(2b) of the PDP constitution (2012) as amended.
“It is important to note that PDP as a political party is bigger and larger than an individual no matter how highly placed he or she may be as to override the rules and regulations of the party which are sacrosanct in the election of any candidate for elective position.
“I reject the purported adoption of a sole candidate in its entirety as there are many other aspirants for the governorship race in 2018”, he said.
