PDP Crisis: No apology for calling for Muazu-led National Working Committee – Fayose
Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has insisted that his call for the dissolution of the Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu-led National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party was in good faith, and in the overall interest of the party, saying, “I have no apology on my position on the NWC because their responsibility as a party does not take away their failure in the last general elections.”
Reiterating his call for the dissolution of the NWC, Governor Fayose said, “In saner climes, when a war commander leads his troupe to an embarrassing defeat, such commander does not need anyone to tell him that he needs to leave the war front for another commander to take over.”
While describing the attack on his person by the NWC as unfortunate, the governor said it was sad that the NWC members, especially the National Chairman were refusing to allow new people to manage the party after managing it into its first national electoral failure.
“How do we explain the PDP losing so scandalously in Bauchi State, despite the presence of the National Chairman, Federal Capital Territory Minister and the State governor?
“I am even more particular about the National Chairman because he sold the party to the opposition. I have cogent evidence of his unholy alliance with the opposition before the elections and if they go any further, I will expose all his underhand deals.
“I want to say it again that I have no apology for calling for the resignation of the NWC members, especially the National Chairman. After all, someone resigned his position as the National Chairman for Alhaji Mu’azu to assume office.
“Lastly, let me say it categorically that they can only attempt to destroy this party for the moment, not forever. Sooner or later, they will all fade away and PDP will rise again,” the governor said.
