Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has described his suspension from the Peoples Democratic Party by the Senator Iyorchia Ayu-led National Working Committee of the party as “the last kick of a dying horse.”
Fayose, who reacted to the suspension through his spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, said “Ayu and his cohorts are only entertaining themselves with the purported suspension as their latest comedy skit.”
He said “in a matter of days, the inglorious tenure of Ayu as national chairman of PDP will become history and the party will enjoy a new lease of life.”
The former Governor said that he and “others who stood by the party when Ayu and his cohorts left it to die will rescue it and give life back to it in due course. The purported suspension will have no leg to stand.”
The PDP suspended Fayose and four other leaders of the party on Thursday. It was part of the decisions taken by the party’s National Working Committee at the end of its meeting.
National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, in a statement named the other suspended party leaders as Senator Pius Anyim (Ebonyi State), Ibrahim Shema (Katsina), Prof Dennis Ityavyar (Benue State) and Dr. Aslam Aliyu (Zamfara State).
Ologunagba said they were suspended over alleged anti-party activities and their suspension takes effect from Thursday, March 23, 2023.
