The Lagos State People Democratic Party (PDP) has asked former Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose to tender an apology to Chief Olabode George.
Lagos PDP Publicity Secretary Taofik Gani said in a statement gave Fayose seven-day ultimatum to apologise for what it described as his deliberate unwarranted vituperation on party elders.
Gani said Fayose had incited party youths against Olabode George, Senator Yinka Omilani, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, Gen. Tajudeen Olanrewaju, Chief Yemi Farombi, Senator Alabi, Clement Awoyelu and Senator Olofintuyi.
The PDP warned that it would declare the former Ekiti governor a persona non grata in the activities if he doesn’t apologise.
According to Gani, Fayose should be regarded as a jester because the candidates he had dismissed in recent times, including Senator Biodun Olujimi and Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki, later triumphed at the polls..
“We are nearing very important elections in the state to take us into winning Lagos State in 2023 general elections. We need all togetherness and complementary efforts of the old, young, male, female,” he said.
“It is thus shocking that a supposed leader would come to our state to ‘tear’ us apart rather than give positive and progressive uniting advice to us. We will hold Fayose responsible for any future election loss in Lagos State and indeed the SouthWest.”
