Governor of Ekiti State and chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Forum, Ayodele Fayose has said that unwavering stand on the part of supporters of the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the party, was what gave them victory over the Ali Modu Sherif’s faction at the Supreme court recently.

Party leaders and members who included Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Kolapo Olushola, Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Kolawole Oluwawole, state chairman of the party, Gboyega Oguntuase, who hailed from Ikole, Chairman of Ikole-Local Government Council, Adeyanju Adeyeye, Kehinde Agboola, member of House of Representative representing Ikole Constituency, and member of Ekiti State House of Assembly representing Ikole, Mrs. Titilayo Owolabi Akerele among other dignitaries, graced the event.

Fayose who was represented at the event by his deputy, Olusola, said: ”Our story in PDP Ekiti and Nigeria is not different from what happened to Daniel in the Bible. The governor believes so much in prayers.When we stand on the truth, God will be with us. What happened to PDP in Nigeria is that truth has prayed. God has shut the lion’s mouth and prevented it from devouring us. Fayose stands by the truth always and that is why he always triumph, ‘ he said.

While the Chairman of Ikole Local Government, Adeyanju Adeyeye said the victory of the party is a signal to the world that the PDP would win the Ekiti gubernatorial poll in 2018, state chairman of the party, Gboyega Oguntuase assured members that no one would be punished for anti-party activities, he said: ‘‎We have come today to give back to God the glory that belongs to Him. We know that this victory has not been our doing but because God, in his infinte mercies, wanted us to have the victory.

”It is very rare to win a case already lost at the High and Appeal court. But God saw us through. God showed His supremacy and all the justices of the Supreme Court decided in favour of Makarfi. With that decision of the Supreme Court, the soul of the PDP has been saved. So, we are celebrating a God that has given us victory.

”I want to tell you that the disposition of the PDP is to make sure that we try nobody for any offence. We want a bigger PDP. There is nobody that is beyond redemption, so as far as I am concerned, we would not try anybody. There have been contentions in our party and the case was a legal one and it has been settled by the highest court in the land. We who have been given that power to lead the party would not try anybody for any offence. We will now work together as a family.
