Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has told former minister of works for state, Prince Dayo Adeyeye and other governorship aspirants in the state to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) if they were not satisfied with his choice of successor.

Punch reports that he said he would not apologise for adopting his deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, as the party's governorship candidate for the 2018 governorship election.

We gathered that Fayose spoke at a declaration of ambition tagged: ‘baby declaration’ by Olusola in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, January 30.

Adeyeye, a former Nigerian High Commissioner to Canada, Dare Bejide; a former commissioner for justice, Owoseni Ajayi; and a Senator representing Ekiti south, Abiodun Olujimi, had kicked against the adoption of Olusola by Fayose as his candidate.

They described the adoption of Olusola as arrogant and anti-democratic.

But Fayose at the rally said: “The PDP has taken a position; I say we have taken a position and we have no apologies for that and the position is that Olusola should take over after me as the governor of Ekiti.

“It doesn’t matter to us how many people that are abusing us by our action. They are even free to join our adversaries, but we will defeat them as God liveth.”

The governor described the declaration as a show of strength to warn the APC, saying, “We are here, we have what it takes to win an election. They say they want to rig election; that will not happen here in Ekiti; they should look elsewhere.

“They must know that politics is not played in the other room; it is played in the living room. We are going to play politics of the living room and not the other room.”
