Fayose warns crisis could set PDP on path to chaos, says ‘serious turbulence’ ahead

269

Signs of strain in the People’s Democratic Party, PDP,  mounted Wednesday with less than 150 days left before the  Presidential elections, former governor of Ekiti state Ayodele Fayose warned warned that the party will soon face serious turbulence.

” I see more serious turbulence for the PDP more than ever before, he said Monday.

” I have been silent all this while hoping that things will get better. I advise we do more that we are doing now to resolve this crisis as events in days/weeks ahead may likely get messier.”

Persecondnews.com report that Fayose’s grim assessment in a tweet Tuesday came as Benue governor Samuel Ortom told the party’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar to go to hell.

“To hell with Atiku and any other Fulani man. And any man supporting Atiku and all that is an enemy. I want this to be known as long as I am governor. They should go and tell him. You want me to be a slave for a Fulani. Anybody supporting Atiku is an enemy of Benue,” Ortom said.

“My people are being killed and you want me to be quiet. My tenure ends in May and you can do whatever you want if you think you have the powers.

“I have written my will. When I gave it to my wife, she cried all night. If I die at 62, many of my mates have gone a long time ago and if I die today, I’m a fulfilled person. But let it be recorded that I died resisting the invasion and killing of my people.

“If the elections will hold, we are good to go and by the grace of God, we will win. Benue is PDP and PDP is Benue state.”

Ortom is one of the PDP chieftains demanding the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as the national chairman of the party.
