Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has said the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party will not welcome the Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, and a former Minister of Works, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, into its fold as they have no electoral value.
Fayose said on Thursday that although the two All Progressives Congress chieftains had problems with Governor Kayode Fayemi, the PDP would not accommodate people that would not add any value to it.
The two APC chieftains and others have been at loggerheads with Fayemi, who they accused of dictatorship and victimisation of perceived critics of his administration.
Fayose, in a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, said, “Apart from not having electoral value, they (Ojudu and Adeyeye) are blackmailers and individuals whose needs are insatiable. Above all, God’s anger has caught up with them in their inordinate quest for power.”
The former governor was responding to Ojudu’s earlier statement on a radio programme in Ado Ekiti that he would never contemplate joining PDP, adding, “If I die and they put the PDP flag on my coffin, I will wake up, tear it and go back to sleep.”
But Fayose in his response, described the presidential aide as “an opportunist, who is always fighting for selfish gains. He fought against Niyi Adebayo, myself, Segun Oni and he is fighting Fayemi now. Who will please him in Ekiti?
“As for us in the PDP, we are not interested in making any gain from the reckless political life of a man who does nothing other than to destroy the government of Ekiti.”
