Fayose disrespecting Jonathan – Aspirant

A governorship aspirant in the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State, Mr. Dayo Adeyeye, has described the rejection of the consensus arrangement proposed by President Goodluck Jonathan to select the party’s governorship candidate in 2014 election as gross indiscipline.

Adeyeye said this in a statement issued on his behalf by the Director-General of his campaign organisation, Mr. Bisi Kolawole, a copy of which was made available to our correspondent in Ado Ekiti on Sunday.

Although Adeyeye, a former aide to the ousted state governor, Mr. Segun Oni, did not mention the name of the aspirant, but former Governor Ayo Fayose, who is also a governorship aspirant, has consistently rejected the consensus arrangement, describing it as an attempt to impose “weak candidate” on the party.

Adeyeye said none of the governorship aspirants was afraid of a primary election. However, he said the President proposed the consensus arrangement in the best interest of the party.

The aspirant, who is from Ise Ekiti in Ekiti South Senatorial District, said, “The major problem of the PDP is indiscipline, and if we must continue to make progress as a party, there must be discipline.

“It smacks of high level of indiscipline for any aspirant to be kicking against a position openly canvassed by Mr. President, who is the leader of the party. Would such an aspirant respect the President and other party leaders if he or she is picked as the party’s candidate and he or she becomes the governor?”
