Fayose Apologises to PDP For Supporting Ali Modu Sheriff




“We worked for Ali Modu Sheriff.
“It was a mistake and I take responsibility.
“I am not going to carry anyone on my head anymore.”



The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has confessed
he made a terrible “mistake” for introducing Senator Ali
Modu Sheriff to the Peoples Democratic Party and
supporting him to become the National Chairman of the
party.
Fayose confessed to the “blunder”, which he said has
brought the party to its current and seemingly unending
leadership crisis when he hosted the campaign team of
national chairmanship aspirant, Raymond Dokpesi, in Ado
Ekiti.
This was stated in a statement issued by Dokpesi’s media
aide, Omor Bazuaye.
This was even as Fayose expressed confidence in
Dokpesi’s capacity to lead the party if elected as the
National Chairman.
Fayose, who had joined the campaign from the border
town of Ita Ogbolu in Ondo, leading it to Ado-Ekiti,
apologised before his party leaders, taking responsibility
for his action.
He said his experience with Sheriff has taught him a bitter
lesson in politics: never to front or stick out his neck that
deep any more for any person.
He said: “We worked for Ali Modu Sheriff.
“It was a mistake and I take responsibility.
“I am not going to carry anyone on my head anymore.”
Fayose said what is happening in the PDP was regrettable,
lamenting attempts by few persons to muzzle the opinion
of majority of others.
He said rather than seek solution to the crisis, many prefer
to distract the party, paying lip service to the peace
process.
Fayose is however optimistic that PDP’s dry bone would
rise again.
He said: “Tough times don’t last, tough people do.
“PDP will triumph and rise again.”
He said that is why he sees what Dokpesi is doing as a
new beginning for the PDP.
Fayose said though he has no doubt that Dokpesi has what
it takes to lead the PDP, his position is that God should
provide a leader amongst all the candidates that have
shown interest in the job.
Fayose wants the vacancy for the National Chairman seat
to be keenly contested as against a situation where a few
persons would sit down somewhere and decide.
He said delegates from Ekiti State would come to Port
Harcourt, Rivers State for the party’s National Convention
on August 17, 2016 with open hearts.
