Governor Seyi Makinde has asked former Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose to stop trying to distract him from his goal of rebuilding the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West region.
Reacting to allegation of sponsoring the attack against Fayose at the PDP’s mega rally in Ondo ahead of the governorship election in the state this weekend, Makinde in a statement released by his media aide Taiwo Adisa, alleged that the former Governor of Ekiti state is trying to hug the limelight even when the occasion doesn’t desire such grandstanding.
The statement read;
“I believe that ex-governor Fayose and his handlers need to look far away from Oyo state in search of their enemies.
“Governor Makinde has no link whatsoever with the incident Fayose’s aide was talking about.
“We expect all right-thinking members of the PDP to join the Governor of Oyo State in the prosecution of the noble and democratic assignment he is executing on behalf of the PDP in Ondo state at this time, instead of seeking to distract him one way or the other.
“The governor will, however, not be distracted either on the task at hand or on the well-intentioned desire to join other leaders to rebuild the PDP in the south-west geopolitical zone.”
