The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state has picked holes in the emergence of Governor Ayo Fayose as the Chairman of Governors’ Forum of Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the party says the governor lacks decorum to function as the chairman of the forum because of his recent actions.
APC made its stance known in statement issued in Akure, the Ondo state capital on Monday, January 23 by its publicity secretary, Abayomi Adesanya.
The statement read: “PDP is on a voyage of total destruction and abandonment with the emergence of uncultured governor like Mr Fayose that lacks decorum, whose past records, attitude and public utterance are seen as affront.
“It shows PDP is lacking in men and women of proven integrity with high level of mental alertness considering the enormous challenges facing our dear country as a result of the PDP’s 16 years of misrule.
“It is unfortunate that Fayose, who was alleged to have beaten up a Judge in his state, who is seen to be suffering from `diarrhea of the mouth’ could be allowed to lead PDP Governors’ Forum.’’
Adesanya further said that the PDP was already in comatose under the leadership of the outgoing governor of Ondo state, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, as the chairman of its governors’ forum.
He advised the PDP to criticise constructively in the interest of Nigerian democracy and to always propagate good leadership.
Meanwhile, the PDP has expressed confidence in the ability of Governor Fayose to lead the PDP Governors’ Forum effectively.
Adeyeye said the party believed that the Ekiti state governor would perform on his new assignment with responsibility and candour.
