Former governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose, has expressed his optimism that the current crisis rocking the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would be resolved before the 2023 general election.
Fayose disclosed this while commissioning the Obuama Community Secondary School in Rivers state on Friday, September 9.
The former governor described Nyesom Wike as the soul of the PDP.
Fayose maintained that the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, holds nothing bad against Governor Wike.
The ex-Ekiti governor blamed the PDP crisis on some persons who he referred to as “enemies of the throne”.
“There is no living being within this party or outside this party that will not acknowledge your contribution to this party.” You are the soul of this party even till now. “What you do, how many people can do it?” Fayose asked.
“I want to believe his excellency, Atiku Abubakar, is not against you. I believe the needful will be done because winning an election is all that matters,” he said.
Atiku and Wike fell apart after the PDP presidential primary.
Wike, who lost out to Atiku, blamed the situation on the lack of neutrality on the part of the PDP national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
Wike demanded Ayu’s resignation, but the national chairman has remained defiant.
