THE State Governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose, has reacted to Saturday’s visit of former Governor Ali Modu Sheriff to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, saying it was a coming together of collaborators in the total annihilation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The governor said it was on record that both Mr. Obasanjo and Mr. Sheriff collaborated to destroy the All Nigerians Peoples Party (ANPP) and their meeting Saturday must be to further collaborate to destroy the PDP.
Governor Fayose, who reacted to the visit through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said, “Sheriff can as well begin to sleep in Obasanjo’s house, it is good riddance to bad rubbish.
“Since Obasanjo is no longer a member of the PDP and he has consistently maintained that he can never return to the PDP, only those in the same league with him can go about visiting him.”
He said it was hypocritical and deceitful for Sheriff to have said he went to see Mr. Obasanjo to seek advice on the way forward for the PDP because he (Obasanjo) was among those who made the PDP to lose the presidency, despite the fact that no one benefited from the party more than him.
Governor Fayose said Mr. Sheriff only visited Mr. Obasanjo as part of his plot
with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to destroy the PDP, adding that; “no genuine lover of the PDP will go to the house of a man who openly destroyed his PDP membership card and worked assiduously to ensure the party’s failure in the 2015 presidential election to seek advice on how the way forward for the PDP.”
He reiterated his call to Nigerians to beware of Mr. Obasanjo, saying; “The result of Obasanjo’s imposition of President Muhammadu Buhari on the country is the hunger and sufferings that Nigerians are facing now.”
