Ekiti governor, Ayodele Fayose has rejected the report submitted by the Governor Seriake Dickson-led reconciliation committee to Sheriff.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka on Thursday, Fayose said there could not be any meaningful reconciliation with the Senator Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction.
The governor who is also the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum said $1bn has been provided by the APC to fund the convention planned by Sheriff.
“This is being done so as to sustain the party’s plot to turn Nigeria to a one party State,” he said.
“All constitutionally recognised organs of the party, including staff of the national secretariat are with the Makarfi led Caretaker Committee and since political party is about membership, Sheriff will continue to carry with himself the burden of lack of legitimacy.
“I respect Governor Dickson, he is my brother and he is entitled to his own personal opinion just as I am entitled to mine. But I must state it categorically that no genuine lover of the PDP will take part in a convention sponsored by the APC.”
