Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party lost the last presidential election because its National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, compromised in the conduct of the election.
Mr. Fayose said he has in his possession cogent evidence of Muazu unholy alliance with the opposition before the elections.
Fayose threatened that if Mu’azu goes any further to deny romancing the opposition before the election, he would expose all his underhand deals.
The governor also challenged the National Working Committee of the party to provide evidence of money released to him to prosecute the last general elections.
He said only N30 million was released to him for the prosecution of the last two elections.
Fayose stated this in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, on Tuesday.
“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.”
“Only N30 million was received for the last two elections and to the glory of the Almighty God and support of Ekiti people, we won all elections outrightly.
“I therefore demand for the mode with which money was released to me by the NWC.”
“If it remains only me, I will continue to defend the course of this party because some people are born to stand up at difficult times, and I believe I am one such people born to stand up for the PDP at this difficult time.”
“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 evidences 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.”
