Fayose says Sheriff teaming up with Obasanjo to destroy PDP

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has crticised Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), over his visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Sheriff held a closed door meeting with Obasanjo at his hilltop mansion in Abeokuta on Saturday.

Fayose described the visit as the “coming together of PDP enemies”, alleging that both Obasanjo and Sheriff collaborated to destroy the All Nigerians Peoples Party. He said:

“The meeting was a coming together of collaborators in the total annihilation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“No genuine lover of the PDP will go to the house of a man who openly destroyed his membership card and worked assiduously to ensure the party’s failure in the 2015 presidential election, to seek advice on how the way forward for the PDP.

“Sheriff can as well begin to sleep in Obasanjo’s house, it is good riddance to bad rubbish.

“Since Obasanjo is no longer a member of the PDP and he has consistently maintained that he can never return to the PDP, only those in the same league with him can go about visiting him.”

Fayose alleged that despite the fact that “no one benefited from the party more than Obasanjo.”
