“Would Have Burnt My PDP Card, Flag If Sheriff Had Won At Supreme Court” – Fayose
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has said that he would have burnt his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card if the Supreme Court had declared Ali Modu Sheriff chairman of the party.
Fayose, who is also the Chairman, PDP Governors’ Forum, said he would have also destroyed the party’s flag in his possession.
The governor made these known on Friday while addressing PDP supporters in Ado-Ekiti – barely two days after the Supreme Court session.
He said he would have destroyed his membership card of the party and the flag right at the court premises if the verdict had been in favour of Sheriff.
He said, “I never imagined myself being in the same party with impostors.
“I went to court with a bottle of perfume, which I wanted to use to spray my card and party flag and set them ablaze, even on the court premises if Sheriff had won. That was why I went to court.
“Though, I believe that we remain the same PDP family but no one can cause our party such trouble and embarrassment and expect that he would go without being asked to account for his actions.
“Even the reactions of Sheriff’s people show that we are together. But the ‘no victor, no vanquished’ statement we made was a mere political slogan. Whoever participated in the matter must show some reasonable level of remorse for their actions.”
