Adeyeye Movement petitions Makarfi over adoption of Ekiti Deputy Governor

The National Care­taker Committee Chairman of Peo­ples Democratic Par­ty (PDP), Sen Ahmed Makarfi, has been peti­tioned over the adoption of Ekiti State Deputy Gov­ernor, Prof Olusola Eleka as the “preferred candi­date” of the party for 2018 gubernatorial election as coordinated by Governor Ayodele Fayose,

The petition was the handiwork of Prince Ad­edayo Adeyeye Move­ment (PAAM).

The group is the cam­paign organisation of the front runner for the PDP governorship tick­et, Dayo Adeyeye the spokesman of the PDP National Caretaker Com­mittee.

The petition, signed by over 180 members of the PDP drawn from across all the Wards in the 16 Local Government of the State and forwarded to the office of the Chair­man, PDP Caretaker Committee, Sen Ahmed Makarfi, decried the uni­lateral adoption of Eleka.

Describing the de­velopment an act of impunity by Governor Fayose, the members dis­sociated themselves from the adoption, and asked the party leadership not to reckon with it.

All party structures in the state, from Ward level were accused of compro­mising their position by taking part one way or another in the adoption saga, which was pointed out as contravening some sections of the PDP con­stitution.

As a remedy, the Na­tional leadership of the PDP was urged to dissolve the party executives, right from Ward level up to the state executives for be­traying the trust reposed in them as custodians of the party’s ethos.
