Former Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose has sent a message to Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the just concluded election.
He warned Obi against associating with the Peoples Democratic Party.
Recall that the PDP and the Labour Party had on Tuesday held a joint press conference to call for the cancellation of the presidential election that held on Saturday over INEC’s failure to upload results to its server directly from polling units.
Obi who was Atiku’s running mate in 2019, but left the opposition party in 2023 to run for presidency on the platform of the Labour Party.
In a statement, Fayose urged Peter Obi to run away from the PDP to avoid suffering the same misfortune they currently suffer.
He said: “Did they (PDP) make effort to reconcile with Obi before today? Today now they are looking for Obi. Obi is the clean man, he should not allow them stain him. Obi is wearing white. Nigerians are talking Obi now.
“Obi is a man I have great respect for. Let me say it here, Obi should not allow PDP stain him. If PDP were the ones winning the election, will they say they should cancel it?”
The former governor urged the PDP to seek redress in court and stop trying to drag Obi into their problems.
Meanwhile, Fayose called on the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, to tender his resignation.
He wrote on Twitter “As for the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, I call for his immediate resignation for his inability to move the party forward.”
