Fayose Set To Quit PDP
It seems the love story between Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose and the People's Democratic Party (PDP) is about to end.
The governor hinted on Wednesday that he will be leaving the PDP if the Supreme Court rules in favour of Ali Modu Sheriff as the authentic chairman of the party.
He was quoted as saying pending the outcome of the court judgement, he remains a bonafide member of the PDP.
The PDP has been locked in crisis owing to the leadership tussle between Sheriff and Ahmed Makarfi.
An Appeals Court had declared Ali Modu Sheriff as the national chairman of the party.
This made the faction led by Makarfi to challenge the decision of the lower court, but Sheriff requested the apex court to disqualify the other faction from appealing the previous judgment.
Makarfi and some members of the PDP, including Fayose, have refused to recognise Sheriff as national chairman.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan had intervened to find a political solution to the impasse, but his peace efforts fell through.
