Fayose seeks support for efforts to rebuild PDP, visits Gbenga Daniel

Ekiti State Governor and Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
Governors’ Forum, Mr Ayodele Fayose has called for support for
all-inclusive efforts to rebuild the PDP, describing the party as “a
sleeping, and not a dead lion.”

Governor Fayose, who emerged as Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum
last Thursday, made this call when he visited former governor of Ogun
State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel in his Lagos residence on Sunday night.

According to a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public
Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor, who
promised to work with all PDP leaders across the country to make a
success of his tenure, said that the party could still boast of the
best and established structure across the country, which needs only
reactivation by putting all hands on deck.

Earlier, Governor Fayose had received former Minister of Information,
Prof Jerry Gana and former governorship candidate of the PDP in Lagos
State, Mr Jimi Agbaje, who visited the governor at his Lagos residence
to congratulate him.

While describing the present challenges being faced by the PDP as “a
phase that we can overcome most importantly that the All Progressives
Congress (APC) government has failed to impress Nigerians and
succeeded in pauperising the nation by its cluelessness,” Governor
Fayose said; “falling is not unusual, but remaining in the falling
state is admittance of perpetual defeat, which the PDP must not submit
itself to.”

He lamented that Nigeria was being led by a nepotistic and dictatorial
President, who has made the country to be more divided more than ever
before, adding that “With the unleashing of hunger and suffering on
Nigerians, PDP stands to gain electorally ahead of 2019 if the party
put its house in order.”

The governor, who called on all serving and former governors as well
as other leaders of the PDP to rise to the rescue of the party by
providing fearless and sincere leadership for party faithful,
described the continuous closure of the party national secretariat as
part of the deliberate efforts of the APC led federal government and
its agents like the police and SSS to make Nigeria a one party state.

Responding, former Governor Gbenga Daniel likened Fayose to the
biblical Daniel, who believed in the rebuilding of the Macedonian

Otunba Daniel, who called for support for Fayose to achieve his good
intentions for the PDP, described him (Fayose) as “as a fearless,
focused and courageous man, and a timely interventionist with a
realisable mission.”
