PDP crisis: Fayose’s aide resigns over N220,000 salary

The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has claimed another casualty, as the Special Assistant to the Governor on Parliamentary Affairs, Samuel Ajibola, has resigned his appointment.

Ajibola in his letter of resignation said he quit the Ayo Fayose-led administration “on basic developmental issues and the economic situation in the state which he can no longer pretend over.”

He was the only PDP member of the House of Assembly before Fayose came to power on October 16, 2014.


Ajibola later joined six All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers who joined Fayose’s camp.

In his letter dated May 28,2016, Ajibola said, “I humbly write this to formally notify you that I am resigning from my position as your S.A on Parliamentary Affairs.

“Sir, within my personal conviction, I am satisfied that I have in honesty and utmost loyalty served the PDP, the people of EKiti and government in general.

“Therefore, I am premising my resignation on some basic developmental issues and the economic situation in the state which I cannot continuing to pretend over.


“My resignation takes off immediately.”

When pressed to speak further on why he quit the party, the former lawmaker said he got into trouble with Fayose for going to the house of former Governor Segun Oni to celebrate Christmas with the latter last December.

Ajibola also disclosed that his meeting with a party elder, Chief Clement Awoyelu, with the intent to broker peace with a faction led by the former senator did not go down well with the governor who allegedly accused him of holding meeting with his political opponents.

He added: “My brother, as SAPA, the Governor pay me N220,000 and I am a grassroot politician, which the Governor himself knows what it means.

“Also I have one of children, currently serving and two others in the university, how do I cope and my constituency are also of high hope that they have a son in the Fayose cabinet.‎”
