Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is not bothered by the recent defection of some notable party members.
Fayose, who is the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, stated this while speaking to journalists on Monday in Gombe State.
He declared that those who left were inconsequential to the well being of the party.
The Ekiti state Governor said that the party will only be worried, if those he described as real members of the party decided to leave.
He noted that, “as long as the real grassroots politicians remain with us, we are not worried.”
He added that “I don’t want to mention names here but if you are referring to those Abuja politicians defecting from the party, it is good for us. We cannot remain with those who are not adding any value to the popularity of the party, it better they leave.”
When reminded that the ruling APC has been traversing the country holding rallies to garner more support ahead of time, he said, “we too have been going round to talk to our people. Let me, however, remind you that in 2015 the PDP did the same thing and lost the elections, what the APC is doing now is preparing to lose power in 2019.”
