Fayose To Mu’azu: Learn From British LP, Liberal Democrats Leaders’ Resignation




EKITI State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has described the resignation of British Labour Party leader, Ed Miliband and Liberal Democrats leader, Nick Clegg over their party’s woeful performance in the last Thursday’s general election as a vindication of his call for the resignation of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu.

The governor, who said in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, that he had no personal score to settle with Mu’azu, added that “it is morally wrong for the National Chairman to remain in office after leading the party into its first national electoral loss.”

Three party leaders in Britain, including opposition Labour Party leader, Ed Miliband and Liberal Democrats leader, Nick Clegg resigned yesterday, after their parties’ loss in the general election.

Fayose said: “Alhaji Mu’azu should be honourable enough to follow the same path as the British LP and Democrats leaders. Mu’azu’s case is even worse than that of the British party leaders, who resigned immediately their party lost because majority of PDP members no longer have confidence in his (Mu’azu) leadership and there is no way a willing leader can be forced on an unwilling followers.”

The Governor added: “This is not about any personality and I am also not operating here on empty boast because Ekiti State was delivered to the PDP 100 per cent. Rather, it is about issues. Imagine the PDP not getting up to five per cent of the votes in Bauchi State, the National Chairman’s home state and someone is still not being honourable enough to resign.

“Haven’t we now seen what operates in saner climes with the resignation of the British LP and Democrats leaders? Shouldn’t our party National Chairman also take a cue from this and allow for fresh minds to steer the ship of the party at this difficult time?

“Methinks leaders in this country should learn from their counterparts in other climes because like I said earlier, when a war commander leads his troop to an embarrassing defeat, such commander does not need anyone to tell him that he needs to leave the war front for another commander to take over.”

    Question:- How is gov. Moonbeam of Ekiti running his administration if he is always in other peoples business? Gov. Moonbeam of Ekiti state must first “pluck the plank in his own eye” before he can see to pluck the feathers in others eyes. “Whom the gods will destroy, they first made mad.” Sai BABA Sai BUHARI.


    How dumb is this man called Fayose, did he knows that the British system of govt is parliamentary while we run presidential system in Nigeria.In Britain their leaders do contest for election & same time the leader of the party but not so in our own case.

    Gov. Fayose is 100% right in his submission. A party leader who leads his party to a disastrous outing such the PDP chairman did in the last, election should step down without fuss. Sadly, there is no integrity in this clime. Shocking.
