EKITI 2018: Adeyeye Accuses Fayose of Plotting to Sell PDP

Fayose's open endorsement of his deputy to replace him as governor has divided the leadership of the PDP in Ekiti with critical reactions following. 

Dayo Adeyeye and Governor Ayodele Fayose
 
Former Minister of Works and National Publicity Secretary, Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, has said the imposition of the Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Prof Kolapo Olusola as the sole candidate of the PDP for the 2018 governorship poll, was part of the plot by Governor Ayodele Fayose to sell the party to the opposition.
 
Describing the action as nullity and serious infraction of the PDP constitution and the electoral act 2010 as amended, Adeyeye accused Governor Fayose of allegedly working in synergy with external forces to ruin the party.
 
He assured the party members that the endorsement of Olusola by Fayose and a section of the party won’t stand, saying the National Working Committee of the party led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi would conduct a free, fair poll to elect a credible candidate.
 
Speaking during a meeting with some members of the party at the headquarters of Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement, PAAM, in Ado Ekiti, Adeyeye said the shenanigans allegedly contrived by Fayose to arm-twist the party to accepting Olusola won’t stand.
 
Meanwhile, Governor Fayose, has said he can’t be threatened or blackmailed by anybody over the recent adoption of his deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola-Eleka, as the preferred candidate in the 2018 governorship election in the state.
 
The governor also said he has no apology to offer anybody or group over the matter since he has not done anything in breach of any rule or law of the party or the country.
 
“To start with, as a party member and a citizen of Nigeria, I reserve the rights to support any candidate for any elective post and even vote same in an election,” he added.

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.
