PDP Crisis: Wike is the soul of PDP – Fayose tells Atiku, Ayu

Former governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, has described the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike as the soul of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), while calling on the party presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar and the national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu to embrace peace.

Ayodele Fayose said the majority of the people who are enemies of Wike today are afraid of Wike’s capacity.

The former governor of Ekiti said the attack against Wike by some Atiku promoters was unfounded as the governor has never contested that the former vice president is the PDP presidential flag bearer.

Fayose stated this at inauguration of the Community Secondary School, Obuama in Degeme Local Government Area of Rivers State on Friday.

He said, “Your Excellency, whatever anybody says about you, prosperity will be on your side. It is a matter of time. When I was governor of Ekiti State, I honour people when they are alive, not when they were dead.

“You have honoured yourself with your handwork. You have shown that it is possible to bring the impossible to bear.

“Rivers State has been there for a long, but today we can see the difference. An average Rivers man is proud to be from Rivers.

“They are proud to say you are their governor. Forget whatever people say about you. I have said it before, Wike, a man with a fierce look, but a good heart. A heart of will, accomplish to love and to support.

“Majority of your enemies today are not against you because of anything, they are against you because they know you have capacity

“They are against you because when you take over, they will fall apart.

“For me, before I come to the commissioning, I want to believe that His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar is not against you. But let me say this very quickly, a lot of people surrounding the throne are enemies of the throne.

“A lot of people around the throne have one axe to grind with somebody or some issue with somebody and they take it where they are not supposed to take it.

“There is no living thing in this party and outside this party that will not acknowledge your contribution to this party.

“You are the soul of this party; even till now what you do how many people do it?”

Remembering his time as governor, Fayosed continued “There was a time in this party when I was a sitting governor, I was a nightmare to the APC and the Buhari Government. I was their nightmare. When you wake up you see Fayose. Today now when put on the Television, it is Wike, Wike. That time as your senior brother, I was a lion.
