Fayose: I will dump PDP if Sherrif wins at Supreme Court

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has said he will dump the PDP if the Supreme Court ruling does not favour the Makarfi-led faction in the leadership face-off with Ali Modu Sherrif.

Fayose said this to newsmen on Tuesday while reacting to media reports that he had removed the name and logo of the PDP from his campaign office in Ekiti.

The governor, however, stated that he remains a bona fide member of the PDP until the outcome of the apex court ruling.

Despite reconciliation efforts, the governor has stated several times that he does not recognise Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the party’s leader.

On February 17, 2017, a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt had ruled that the caretaker committee headed by Makarfi was illegal and could not act on behalf of the PDP.
