Olujumi ‘Takes Over’ Ekiti Leadership From Fayose, Asks For Loyalty



The battle line for the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Ekiti State between former Governor Ayodele Fayose and Senator Biodun Olujumi was set on Friday after Senator Olujumi assumed leadership of the party and asked for loyalty from party members in the state.

The Senate Minority leader in a statement issued on her behalf by her Special Assistant on Public Communication, Sanya Atofarati said every opinion by party members would be reckoned with to ensure increased growth of the party in the state.

The statement read thus:

“As we speak, Senator Olujimi has commenced reconciliation process to bring back all aggrieved members who left the party for one reason or the other and, especially, those who are in the party today but are uncomfortable with its management. They have been talking to us and efforts are in top gear to ensure collectivism is applied this time.

” I therefore use this medium to plead with the likes of Senator Awoyelu, Surveyor Biodun Aluko, Ambassador Dare Bejide, Chief Tunde Adeniran, Mr Bisi Omoyeni, Barr. Ojuawo, Hon. Tunji Ogunniyi, Hon. Kola Adefemi amongst others. These are leaders who are pioneers of PDP and have sacrificed and contributed immensely to the growth of our party but today, many of them have been neglected for reasons unknown. But the Olujimi leadership will resuscitate the party.”

Senator Olujumi’s assumption of leadership follows last Saturday’s declaration by some prominent leaders of the party in the state for her to take over the leadership of the party.
