It was carnival like in Ikole Local Government area of Ekiti State as thousands of People’s Democratic Party PDP members trooped out to welcome the state chairman of the party Chief Gboyega Oguntuase and other stalwarts of PDP to the area.

The PDP members in their large numbers both young and old rolled out drums to show their support for the leadership style of Chief Oguntuase.

Roundoffnews gathered that the visit was part of the efforts to prepare ahead of the PDP Congress scheduled for March 7th 2020.

Speaking at the programme, Chief Oguntuase who was overwhelmed by the rousing welcome he received from people of his council appreciated them for their support in the last four years.

The PDP chairman said that the former governor of Ekiti State,  Mr Ayodele Fayose was responsible for the downfall of the party based on his highhandedness,  greediness and  selfish interest.

Chief Oguntuase alleged Mr Fayose of selling the party Secretariat which was built with PDP money.

“My resistant to all his antics aimed at luring me to be part of the shameful, disgraceful and criminal acts is my offense.” Chief  Oguntuase said.

He said as at today large numbers of those who worked with him including,  commissioners, House of Assembly members and leaders of the party were no more with him based on the way he maltreated them while in power.

He said Fayose operated and ruled like no tomorrow.

“Less than two years out of office as Governor, seventeen out of his 26 Assembly members are no longer with him what could be more devastating than that?

“Fayose needs to retrace his steps and seek genuine repentance from Ekiti people he looted rather than his consistent deceit and gangsterism.”

In a remark, the Director General of Kehinde Odebunmi campaign Dr Lateef Ajijola, noted that the former governor had used his selfish interest to destroy the Fortune of PDP and urged members to be wary of his antic to cause another damage as the party congress approaches.

He noted that Hon. Odebunmi remains the only person with high pedigree, integrity and humility to foster unity among the party members and return it to power.

Dr Ajijola said Fayose is a man with questionable character and must not be allowed to ruin the party structure like he did while in office urging party members to reject him.

Addressing the gathering, Hon Kehinde Odebunmi who is one of the aspirants in the forthcoming Congress of PDP solicited the support of members of the party with a promise to run an inclusive administration and return the party to the people.
