Factional Chairman of the Lagos Chapter of the Peoples Democtratic Party, PDP, Segun Adewale, has described the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose as a “mole” who is “biting the finger that fed him.”
Adewale made the remark while reacting to claim that he was plotting to unseat Fayose and replace him with former governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi.
Adewale, in a statement he personally signed dismissed the claim, saying Fayose is a major distraction to the PDP.
Adewale denied having any relationship with Fayemi and any other member of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He also accused Fayose of being hypocritical, adding that his open romance with some APC kingpins was worrisome.
The statement reads, “My attention has been brought to a spurious claim in a publication, purporting that I, Otunba Segun Adewale (Aeroland) is plotting to unseat the governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, in order to install former governor, Kayode Fayemi, by ‘bribing’ Supreme Court judges with N150 million.
“Ordinarily, I would not have dignified such porous reasoning feigned as publication with a response, as the entire public can verify or vouch that I will never partake in questionable conducts, more else, engage in what is not only against the Nigeria constitution but foully against humanity.
“May I again dismiss abundantly the claims in the said publication, which are not only entirely false, but show the writers lack sense to even think as human beings.
“It is an aberration for a sitting PDP governor of a state, Ayodele Fayose, to be acting a mole in a party that got him into office, a glaring case of biting the fingers that fed him.
“Contrary to the fictitious publication, which was carved in a vendetta scheme against me for rightly exposing governor Fayose on his romance with All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership, I must emphasise that I do not know Kayode Fayemi nor have I met him,” he said.
The faction Chairman of the party in Lagos State stressed that he remained a faithful and committed party man, while assuring party leaders of his unwavering loyalty and commitment.
“I am an unrepentant believer in the ideology of the PDP especially under the current leadership of senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the national chairman. I refused to leave the party when it was very easy to do so as an unrecognised member.
“Is it not worrisome that a governor and leader in our party speak from both sides of the mouth on issues that relate to the ruling party?
“At one point, the governor Fayose is busy abusing the President Muhammadu Buhari, alleging former governor Fayemi of corruption but at the same time praising Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who was instrumental to the election of both men into office at every opportunity.
“His open romances with leaders of the ruling party like governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun, visiting governor Akeredolu of Ondo and praising Asiwaju Bola Tinubu are major discouragements that dampen the morale of our members.
“A supposed leader of our party in the southwest but sells out on values and proposition of our party for his selfish personal interests. Whoever dares stand against his attempt to destroy the party is immediately under the attack of his propaganda machinery to the detriment of the party”, he said.
