Isaac Fayose, the younger brother of former governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose, has declared that in his opinion, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is dead.
PDP is officially dead in Lagos State and the Southwest geographical zone, according to Fayose. He said that in response to what was allegedly an altercation between PDP members on Sunday in Lagos State.
In a viral video, PDP supporters were seen telling Bode George and the G-5 governors that they would vote for Atiku during the presidential election.
According to Vanguard, this reportedly happened when George asked them not to vote for Atiku and Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran popularly known as Jandor. Jandor is the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in Lagos State and is presently not on good terms with George.
Reacting to the video, Fayose wrote on his Facebook: “PDP officially dead in southwest and Lagos!! Buried yesterday.”
The Governor Nyesom Wike-led G-5 governors had been against the PDP leadership over alleged imbalance within the party.
The Wike-led group had said PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Iyorchia Ayu, who is the party’s National Chairman, can’t come from the same zone.
