Olubolade, Fayose reconcile, say Fayemi’s days numbered
Former Minister of Police Affairs, Navy Capt Caleb Olubolade (rtd) and the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Mr Ayo Fayose, have buried their differences ahead the June 21 election.
The former minister was one of the aggrieved 13 aspirants that protested the emergence of Fayose as the candidate of the PDP in the primaries held by the party in February.
At a meeting with PDP members and supporters in Ipoti-Ekiti, on Sunday, the duo said they are now determined to work together and send the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) out of office in the coming election.
The former minister said he was not a fair weather politician and would always abide by the decision of the party.
“For those asking why I have kept quiet all this while, I say there is no time limit to speak. I am not a politician who goes in search of greener pasture here and there. I am a disciplined party man and would always abide with the decisions of party leaders and I am not the type who would betray his leader.
The former minister said he will vote for Fayose. “I have my followers. They will vote for you. You will get there. I will work for you. You are a grassroots man. My main assignment is for Fayose to win and he will see the effect of my work. APC is running a government of deceit and it must be booted out. Fayemi has put Ekiti in the valley of death. Ekiti must be rescued and only Fayose can do that,” he said.
On the invitation sent to him by some APC leaders to come and join their party, Olubolade said they were only chasing shadows.
Fayose who also spoke said the enemies of the party have been put to shame.
