- The PDP chieftain and House of Representatives candidate for Ekiti Central Federal Constituency accused some party members of suffering from the election’s impact
- Olayinka, who ran for the House of Representatives in the last general elections, believes that the PDP should concentrate on reconciliation
Lere Olayinka, a senior member in the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State, called those advocating for the suspension of former governor Ayodele Fayose from the party “political almajiris seeking unavailable lifeline.”
In a statement on Thursday, Olayinka thought it was ironic that people who were supporting the demand hadn’t accepted the fact that the elections were finished and there wouldn’t be any more free money any time soon.
Olayinka, a candidate for the House of Representatives in the most recent general election, believes that the PDP should prioritise reconciliation.
He said, “The PDP of today is a party that should be going to people’s houses to beg them to return to active participation in the party. It is a party that has lost its political steam and those at present controlling it should begin the shedding of their garments of arrogance so that the party can be prevented from total collapse.
“It is either the political almajiris in Ekiti, who have never won any election without Fayose are yet to realise that unlike before, no one is struggling to be a member of the PDP or they are just playing to the gallery so that their political ATM can make available the usual crumbs.”
