The governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has rebuked the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu for criticizing members of the party while he has never criticized the opposition, All Progressives Congress, APC, which he (Mu’azu) is alleged of working for.
Fayose was reacting to Mu’azu who mocked him for his failed death wish advert on Buhari.
“Disloyalty: A leader who takes to twitter to slight a party member but never did the same with or to the opponent. God sees our hearts.” He was to follow up with a series of tweets.
“PDP will outlast many of us. The legacy of true politics is Service to the People, loyalty to one’s Team and a clear Conscience before God,” followed by “I appreciate the online community of PDP supporters and will always champion our collective cause for a better Nigeria under God.”
In a seeming rebuke to the national chairman for directing his missiles at him, Fayose in another tweet urged the national chairman thus, “Any strong words we have are reserved only for our opponents and only in political season. This is now the time to unite for PDP and Nigeria”
Recall that Mu’azu mocked Fayose, insisting that his death wish advert on president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari led to the loss of president Goodluck Jonathan at the elections.
Governor Fayose had recently called for the resignation of Mu`azu as national chairman saying that it was inexcusable that President Goodluck Jonathan could have lost in Mu`azu’s home state of Bauchi with an incumbent PDP governor, minister of Federal Capital Territory and the national chairman.
Fayose had pressed on to say that he had evidence that Mu`azu was compromised as national chairman and worked for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Mu`azu responded on twitter saying:
We hope it’s not the kind of evidence he once said he had that Buhari was dying?
Following that, Mu`azu tweeted, challenging Fayose to come out with the evidence “We challenge Governor Fayose to come out with the evidence that shows National Chairman worked for APC during the elections.”
He followed that with another tweet to buttress the support he gave to Fayose as a candidate, “The National chairman campaigned for Governor Fayose, defended him & was at his inauguration & will continue to support him & Ekiti people.”
The tweet was against the background of claims that the presidency and associates of President Goodluck Jonathan were peeved by the refusal of Mu`azu to use strong words against the APC’s presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.
