A former governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose, has said the days of Senator Iyorchia Ayu, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are numbered.
This was revealed by the former governor of Ekiti in a statement released through his spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, on Friday.
His response follows his Thursday party ban.
Fayose described the Ayu-led National Working Committee of the party as “the last kick of a dead horse.”
He said, “Ayu and his cohorts are only entertaining themselves with the purported suspension as their latest comedy skit.”
According to Fayose, in a matter of days, the “inglorious tenure” of Ayu as national chairman of PDP would become history and the party will enjoy a new lease of life.
Fayose said he and others who stood by the party when “Ayu and his cohorts” left it to die would rescue it and give life back in due course.”
“The purported suspension will have no leg to stand,” he added.
Recall that the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) after its meeting on Thursday, announced the suspension of five of its chieftains including Fayose.
Also, the party expelled Dr. Aslam Aliyu from Zamfara State and Prof. Dennis Ityavyar from Benue State.
Debo Ologunagba, the party’s national publicity secretary, said in a statement that the party has also reported Samuel Ortom, the governor of the state of Benue, to the national disciplinary committee due to his participation in anti-party actions during the previous election.
