The Senate Minority Leader, Senator Biodun Olujimi, has rejected composition of Atiku Atiku Abubakar Campaign Council in Ekiti State and called on the Peoples Democratic Party National Chairman, Uche Secondus; and the party’s National Working Committee to disband and reconstitute it.

Olujimi accused former Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, of taking over the council and putting his cronies in all strategic positions “with the intention of sidelining other members of the party.”

The council, according to a publication which Olujimi was reacting to, is billed for inauguration in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday.

But the PDP senator and senatorial candidate, in a petition to Secondus dated January 6, said Fayose should be mandated to comply immediately with the earlier resolution of the party “by adhering to the earlier membership and composition of the Atiku/Obi Presidential Council, as previously agreed by the state working committee.”

She said that if Fayose fails to comply with the resolution, the state working committee would be left with no other option than to take appropriate actions that would reflect the wish of the people as agreed in the meeting of the campaign council at the PDP State Secretariat and chaired by Prof. Olusola Kolapo.

Olujimi stated, “The original composition as agreed to at the meeting, had Prof Olusola Kolapo as chairman: Otunba Yinka Akerele as Director General and Chief Sanya Atofarati as Spokesperson/Director of Media among others while the position of Secretary did not exist in the original composition by the National Directorate.

But the composition, which she rejected, had Prof. Olusola as chairman, Dipo Anisulowo as DG, Gboyega Oguntuase as Secretary; Jackson Adebayo as spokesperson; and Lere Olayinka as Director, Media and Publicity. She described them as “cronies and stooges of Mr. Ayo Fayose.”

She said: “In the spirit of equity, justice, fairness and general acceptability in Ekiti PDP,” only immediate dissolution of the highly ‘lopsided’ campaign council could avert unnecessary cleavages in the party in the state.

The senator said: “It has become imperative to swiftly alert the National Campaign Council of our great party, PDP, and the general public to kindly disregard the misleading publication as to the actual composition of the Campaign Council.

“The purported publication is not only untrue, but also contravenes the prescribed provisions of our party’s guidelines and directive.

“It should be understood that this is another orchestrated plan of former Governor Ayo Fayose to convert the party’s resources and fortunes to his personal enterprise as usual.

“He did it during the last governorship election and our party paid dearly for it in spite of my advice, warnings and outcry. Once beaten, twice shy.

“This is most unacceptable, as Ekiti people and Nigerians cannot afford to lose this golden opportunity to change the APC-led maladministration both at the national and state levels because of one person’s self-centeredness,” she stated.
