PDP Chairman Mu'azu Falls Out With Governor Fayose

The National Chairman of the PDP, Adamu Mu'azu, and Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose took to their Twitter handles on Thursday to tackle each other over the defeat of President Goodluck Jonathan in the March 28 presidential election.

Their action came less than three days after President Goodluck Jonathan called on the PDP leaders to stop the blame game over his loss to Muhammadu Buhari and rather reposition the party ahead of 2019.

Fayose had claimed that he has evidence that Mu'azu connived with APC to ensure the defeat of Jonathan at the polls. He went ahead to ask Mu'azu to resign. But angered by the governor's call and claim, the PDP Chairman dared Fayose: 'Provide evidence of the allegations you levelled against him or keep shut.'

Mu'azu said it was the hate campaign which Fayose targeted at Buhari that cost Jonathan the Presidency. While daring Fayose to provide the evidence, he said, "Fayose said he has evidence that I, Mu'azu, worked for the APC. I hope it is not the kind of evidence he once said he had that Buhari was dying."

Mu'azu said he repeatedly warned members of the PDP to run an issue-based campaign but overzealous supporters of Jonathan opted for hate campaign against Buhari. The PDP chairman said, "You will all recall that I warned members of our presidential campaign organisation to stop the hate campaign.

"I challenge Governor Fayose to come out with evidence that shows that I, the national chairman, worked with the APC during the elections." Mu'azu said it was unfortunate that Fayose was the one leading the call for his removal. He recalled how he and other leaders of the party ensured that Fayose became the PDP governorship candidate in Ekiti State last year.

According to him, the same party leaders, including himself, helped Fayose to secure victory against the then Governor Kayode Fayemi on June 21, 2014.

"I, as the national chairman campaigned for Governor Fayose, defended him and was at his inauguration."
