Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has exhausted its stay in Nigeria.

Aregesola made the statement on Tuesday, January 26, 2016, when Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose paid him a visit.

“Osoko has said that he is not going to leave his party, but the reality today is that PDP has served its term in Nigeria. When a horse is dead, it is either you abandon it or you bury it,” the Osun governor said.

“I want my good friend and brother to know that PDP has exhausted its stay in Nigeria, it can no longer be revived, let us look at a political party that will give hope to our people. Opposition must be for a purpose, I stand by you on the unity of Yoruba land and that our leaders not put down in the country.

“The war is over, we are in a season of mobilising our people to agriculture and produce such that we will economically have the strength to give leadership to the Nation and Africa.

“Our energy must be directed at bringing human and physical development, we have enough in this region to give leadership," Aregbesola added.

Fayose however denied that he had visited his Osun counterpart for political reasons.
