…Says Ex-Gov Pursued By Inner Demon
By Ayo Esan
A group within the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the PDP Democrats, has called on Nigerians to ignore the outburst of former governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Ayodele Fayose, describing him as “a confused dreamer.”
It would be recalled that Fayose had on Tuesday accused the governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, and former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, Chief Olabode George, as sponsors of the attack carried out on him by some youths, who removed his cap at a campaign rally in Ondo State.
The PDP Democrats, in a statement signed by its Chairman, Tajudeen Abinuwaye, said, “In an unguarded and unthoughtful outburst, Fayose hurriedly jumped into conclusion, whipping up emotion about his encounter with some youths in Ondo State, who allegedly removed his cap at the grand finale of the PDP rally.
“Fayose openly apologized to all the people he had wronged right at the podium in his very brief remarks. It is rather shocking and outrageous for this same person to change swiftly and started pointing accusing fingers at his phantom enemies.
“Fayose is known to have been reckless and abusive towards elders. He had once maligned and openly abused former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Chief Afe Babalola, Chief George and even President Muhammadu Buhari.”
The group further said that Fayose has “constantly displayed an attitude of a man pursued by some inner demon. He needs a definite purgation. His careless, indifferent outbursts should be discountenanced.”
