The national leadership of our great party should quickly come to the rescue of the party in Ekiti State before Governor Fayose destroys the party.
In the first instance, Mr. Governor created his own constitution by fixing the maximum age for Chairmanship candidate at 50 years while the maximum age for a councillorship candidate at 30 years against the provisions of Nigerian Constitution.
There is nowhere in the constitution that stipulates maximum age for any elective position.
Furthermore, the primary elections to elect the candidates for councillorship and Chairmanship of various local government commenced yesterday at the Ekiti State Government House instead of the various wards and local governments respectively. The Governor is the electoral officer for the exercise.
Thousands of our teeming party people a were subjected to untold hardships by sleeping on grasses, inside buses, inside cars and on bare concrete platform. The Governor adopted option A4 method that attracted a lot of people without any arrangement for an accommodation of the delegates.
Surprisingly, this morning, the publicity secretary of the party in Ekiti State issued a statement that the Governor had disqualified all Chairmanship’ aspirants from Ado Local government for unruly behaviors, thereby calling for the fresh nomination before Friday for other interested aspirants. We believe that only court of law can disqualify a candidate for Election not by executive fiat by the Governor.
We hereby call on the national leadership of PDP to quickly wade into the situation before it degenerates further. Governor Fayose is not the owner of PDP but only privileged to be a sitting Governor at this time. We appeal to our party people that have been subjected to all forms of dehumanizing statements and conditions to remain calm and be loyal to the party. A new rain will fall, its cloud already gathering and it will usher in the soothing balm to calm our nerves.
