Fayose's Sack: 5 PDP Reps Restates Loyalty To Ex-Governor, Disown Olujimi

The Peoples Democratic Party’s five House of Representatives members from Ekiti State have expressed their confidence in the leadership of the Chief Gboyega Oguntuase-led State Working Committee of the party.

They dissociated themselves from Saturday’s meeting of some stakeholders held at the instance of the Senate Minority Leader, Mrs Biodun Olujimi, which called for the dissolution of the SWC.

The House of Representatives members are: Kehinde Agboola (Ekiti-North Federal Constituency I), Thaddeus Aina (Ekiti North II), Ayo Oladimeji (Ekiti Central I), Segun Adekola (Ekiti South I) and Akin Awodumila (Ekiti South II).

Stating their loyalty to the immediate past governor of the state, Mr Ayodele Fayose, the legislators said there was no leadership vacuum in the PDP in Ekiti State, advising those desperate for political leadership to wait for their time.

The members called on the Senate leadership to caution Olujimi against causing a crisis that could affect the party’s chances at the 2019 general elections.

In a statement signed on their behalf by Adekola, the caucus said they were not consulted before the meeting took place, adding that most of those who attended worked against the party in the July 14 governorship election.
