The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose can’t decide how the party should be run.
The comment was made by PDP National Secretary, Wale Oladipo who also said that Fayose needs guidance on how to behave.
“Governor Fayose is not a member of the national working committee of the PDP, but he’s causing confusion with his utterances,” Oladipo said.
“We are not dabbling into his government and he has no right to tell us how to run the party here. We have an order of the court stopping the congress. The governor cannot overrule the court.
“He should behave like other governors who do not dabble into the running of the party at the national level. He should learn from Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State who respect the party and the president of the country.
“The order of the court was even published in three national dailies and therefore, he can’t deny he was not aware. Our national legal adviser who is the chief legal adviser of the party, Mr. Victor Kwon, has advised that we comply with the order and we are complying with it. We are not above the law of the land.
“Those who want to claim they want to organise any conference are doing that on their own, not on behalf of the party. Whatever comes out of it would be null and void because we are not monitoring it,” he added.
Meanwhile, Fayose has said that he will not support the bid of PDP chieftain, Bode George to become the party’s chairman.
