Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has reacted to Saturday’s visit of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, describing it as a coming together of collaborators in the total annihilation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The governor said it was on record that both Obasanjo and Sheriff collaborated to destroy the All Nigerians Peoples Party (ANPP) and that their meeting today must be to further collaborate to destroy the PDP.
Governor Fayose, who reacted to the visit through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said:
“Sheriff can as well begin to sleep in Obasanjo’s house; it is good riddance to bad rubbish.”
The governor said; “since Obasanjo is no longer a member of the PDP and he has consistently maintained that he can never return to the PDP, only those in the same league with him can go about visiting him.”
He said it was hypocritical and deceitful for Sheriff to have said he went to see Obasanjo to seek advice on the way forward for the PDP because he (Obasanjo) was among those made the PDP to lose the presidency, despite that no one benefited from the party more than him.
Governor Fayose said Sheriff only visited Obasanjo as part of his plot with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to destroy the PDP, adding that “no genuine lover of the PDP will go to the house of a man whoopenly destroyed his PDP membership card and worked assiduously to ensure the party’s failure in the 2015 presidential election to seek advice on how the way forward for the PDP.”
He reiterated his call to Nigerians to beware of Obasanjo, saying “The result of Obasanjo’s imposition of President Muhammadu Buhari on the country is the hunger and sufferings that Nigerians are facing now.”
