Olayinka stressed that he can’t afford to stay in a party that is being controlled by a power-greedy individual.

In his words, “I love PDP so well that I decided that come rain, come sunshine, I will never defect to APC. But when Fayose came, he hijacked the party. He is the State Working Committee, the Commissioners, the Assembly members, to the extent that nobody could have a say.

'He has forgotten so soon that during his misadventure to Labour Party, some of us stayed back in the PDP and prevented it from total collapse. If PDP had died before he came, would he have won the governorship ticket? Today, Fayose has succeeded in killing the party in Ekiti .

'I can’t afford to stay in a party that is being controlled by a power-greedy individual. I am a team player and I believe in the ethos of democracy, so we are leaving the PDP for Fayose all alone,' Olayinka disclosed.
