Hey there, middle schoolers! Today, we’re going to talk about some drama happening in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State. One of the party members, Lere Olayinka, is not happy with some people who want to suspend the former Governor of the State, Ayo Fayose. Let’s find out why!
Lere Olayinka, who is also a candidate for the House of Representatives, said that some members of the PDP are suffering because of the last election. He thinks that the party has lost its power in the State because of bad leadership from certain people he calls ‘political almajiris’.
Now, you might be wondering what ‘political almajiris’ means. Well, it’s a term Lere Olayinka used to describe people who are not doing a good job in leading the party. He thinks they are only interested in making noise and not really helping the party.
Lere Olayinka said, “I would have ignored those people whose horizon is not beyond noise making to attract the usual political attention. However, it has become necessary to let them know that their time of success is over and they need to find something else to do.”
He also mentioned that the party is not as strong as it used to be and the people in charge need to stop being arrogant. He believes that if they don’t change, the party might collapse. Lere Olayinka thinks that some people in Ekiti who have always relied on Ayo Fayose to win elections are not realizing that things have changed.
Just to give you some background, Ayo Fayose was suspended from the party before because of some things he did during the 2023 general elections. But later, the National Working Committee decided to reverse the suspension.
So, there you have it! Lere Olayinka is not happy with some members of the PDP who want to suspend Ayo Fayose. He thinks they are not doing a good job and the party is losing its power. Let’s see what happens next in this political drama!
