Fayose’s arrogance caused PDP’s defeat in Ekiti – Kashamu



The Senator representing Ogun East at the National Assembly , Buruji Kashamu , has blamed the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party in the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti State on the arrogance of incumbent Governor Ayodele Fayose .Kashamu , a member of the PDP , said he saw the party ’ s defeat in Ekiti coming , because the “ good people of Ekiti wanted to do away with anything Fayose . ”

He said the defeat was inevitable seeing how a former interim Caretaker Chairman of the PDP , Ahmed Makarfi , encouraged Fayose to drive away other party stakeholders in the South -West .

Kashamu said this in a chat with journalists at the weekend .

He said, “The good people of Ekiti State wanted to do away with anything Fayose and that was what happened ; that was why he lost even in his own local government.

“It is not that the people do not like the PDP . They still like the PDP but they detest Fayose and his antics .

bukas are not what would impact on the life of the average Ekiti man or woman . To what extent has he gone to make life better for the average Ekiti man or woman ? Has he provided a conducive environment for them to realise their full potential ? The people saw through his deceit and rejected him . ”
Kashamu called on the PDP leadership to move in and rescue the party in the South -West so as to shore up its fortune before the 2019 general elections .

He said, “ The earlier the leaders of the PDP restructure the lopsided structure in place in the South – West , the better it would be .

“ The party has to be repositioned and restructured to accommodate all well-meaning leaders and stakeholders . There is no notable leader of the party in the South -West that Fayose has not insulted . He cannot mobilise , yet he rubbishes those who can. Most of our leaders do not want to have anything to do with him . Should the party continue to rely on him , the PDP will continue to lose woefully . ”
