The Ekiti state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has dissociated itself from a meeting called by Fayose group where the idea of a consensus chairmanship candidate is being muted.

The party reiterated its commitment to free, fair and transparent congress where all officers of the party are elected according to the constitution of the party.

In a statement by the Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Jackson Adebayo, the party cautioned leaders of the party from engaging in meetings that can cause confusion and disharmony among the party members, saying any leader who does this has a motive that is aimed at bringing the party to its kneel.

The party clarify that the meeting that took place at Sen Clement Awoyelu house in Ado Ekiti where the issue on consensus chairmanship candidate for the party came up doesn’t enjoy the approval of the party in the state, hence it is declared an aberration and whatever decision taken there is null and void.

According to the party, the clarification becomes necessary in order to correct the erroneous impression that the meeting was called on behalf of the party, adding that the conveiner of the meeting, the former governor of the state, Dr Ayo Fayose was expected to let the gathering know that the meeting was his personal idea instead of creating the impression that it was an official party meeting.

The party cautioned the group which is associated with the former governor to desist from brigandage politics but concentrate on canvassing for delegates support because the party will not encourage consensus arrangement, saying that the constitution of the party will be adhered to.
