NIGERIA: Gov. Fayose Threatens to Dump PDP

The governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has said that he is set to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) if the supreme court rules that Ali Modu Sheriff is the authentic chairman of the party.

Governor Fayose disclosed this to newsmen on Tuesday while reacting to media reports that he had removed the name and logo of the PDP from his campaign office and mini signposts mounted on Ado and Ikere-Ekiti roads.
The governor, however, stated that he remains a bonafide member of the PDP until the outcome of the court judgement.
The apex court has fixed May 25 for hearing of the crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Despite reconciliation efforts by the former President Goodluck Jonathan, the governor has stated several times that he does not recognize Sen. Sheriff as the party’s leader.
On February 17, a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, ruled that the caretaker committee headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi was illegal and could not act on behalf of the party.
A Federal High Court in Abuja, declared Ali Modu Sheriff as the national chairman of the party.
