Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has warned Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State to stop interfering in the local affairs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State.
The former Ekiti Governor said this during a meeting of PDP national delegates in Ogun State.
Fayose said while he acknowledged the role of Makinde as a regional party leader, he has no right to interfere in how party members at the local level in Ekiti chose their leaders.
According to the former Governor,
“There has been a reasonable cold war about who and who become the executive of the zone. Governor Makinde has demanded that the zonal executive be sacked and a caretaker be foisted on the zone, which the party did.
“The fact that there is a sitting governor does not say I should go to another man’s state. Nobody should come to my state; if you come to my state, I will face you squarely. I will continue to respect him because he is my brother; I love him so much and I was part of his emergence.
The sectarian war between members of the PDP in Ogun State also came to an end following the death of factional leader Buruji Kashamu who died of COVID-19 complications.
The Sikirullahi Ogundele led faction of the party occupied the state secretariat barely a month after Kashamu died.
