Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has accused Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Adamu Mu’azu of selling the party out to the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the recently concluded general elections.

Fayose also said that he could provide convincing evidence that Mu’azu helped the APC during the polls.

The governor made the comments on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, via a statement released by his media aide, Lere Olayinka.

The statement reads:

“In saner climes, when a war commander leads his troops to an embarrassing defeat, such commander does not need anyone to tell him that he needs to leave the war front for another commander to take over.”

“How do we explain the PDP losing so scandalously in Bauchi State, despite the presence of the national chairman, federal capital territory minister and the state governor?”

“I am even more particular about the National Chairman because he sold the party to the opposition. I have cogent evidences of his unholy alliance with the opposition before the elections and if they go any further, I will expose all his underhand deals.”

“I want to say it again that I have no apology for calling for the resignation of the NWC members, especially the National Chairman. After all, someone resigned his position as the National Chairman for Alhaji Mu’azu to assume office.”

​​”I have no apology on my position on the NWC because their responsibility as a party does not take away their failure in the last general elections.”

 “Lastly, let me say it categorically that they can only attempt to destroy this party for the moment, not forever. Sooner or later, they will all fade away and PDP will rise again.”

Some members of the PDP have mounted pressure on Mu’azu and members of the NWC to resign following the party’s woeful loss in the elections.
