Sheriff also said that Fayose is free to leave the PDP if he wants to adding that the governor’s exit would bring peace to the party.

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff has accused Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose of being behind the crisis in the party.

Sheriff also said that Fayose is free to leave the PDP if he wants to adding that the governor’s exit would bring peace to the party.

The PDP Chairman made the comments while speaking with journalists after a visit to the party secretariat in Calabar, Cross River state.

“He (Fayose) cannot speak for the southwest PDP. The southwest PDP that I know cannot allow the likes of Fayose to be speaking for them,” Sheriff said according to The Nation.

“Fayose is alone and he is speaking for himself not the PDP of southwest. He is the only governor that is causing problem among the 12 PDP governors that we have today. If he wants to leave the party, he should go and there will be peace in the PDP because he is the architect of the crisis in our party.

“For the record, all the southwest PDP chairmen and their leaders are with me. So where is Fayose getting his support base from? He is alone and he’s just playing the script of his author. He should go if he wants,” Sheriff added.

The PDP has been rocked by a leadership crisis since it attempted to remove Sheriff as chairman in May 2016.
