S/West PDP: Makinde Gradually Losing Ondo As Senator Akinyelure Also Joins Fayose’s Camp
Senator representing Ondo Central, Ayo Akinyelure visited former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose in his Lagos residence yesterday to pledge his support for Dr Eddy Olafeso, who is being promoted as the People’s Democratic Party National Vice Chairman (South-West) by the group led by Fayose political.
Akinyelure support for Fayose’s group is coming after Senator Nicholas Tofowomo, representing Ondo South District in the National Assembly led a delegation of
prominent members of the party to pay a solidarity visit to Fayose.
As power tussle within PDP continues in South-West and the Zonal Congress fast approaching, Fayose is said to be adding political bigwigs and elected politicians into his camp.
Ondo is the second State, which is seen as Governor Seyi Makinde’s support base, but in two weeks, his camp had lost two serving senators to Fayose camp.
Among the Ondo PDP delegation that had earlier visited Fayose to pledge loyalty and support were, Chief Eddy Olafeso, former House of Representatives member, Lad Ojomo, ex-House of Assembly member, Niyi Ogunboye, Chief Ibini Oyedele, Chief Tunde Akindehin, Pastor Larry Ogunmusere, Ife Akinsoyinu, Sola Ebiwonjumi, Olusola Adewo, Adeolu Akinseye and Ebenezer Alabi.
