Lalong to Fayose: don’t leave PDP now

Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong yesterday advised his Ekiti State counterpart, Ayodele Fayose, not to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Even though he did not say his destination, Fayose said he was considering leaving the PDP and seeking another party to contest the election in 2018.

But Lalong said Fayose will not be welcome in the All Progressives Congress (APC) , until after the party has taken over his state in 2018.

The Plateau governor spoke at the APC’s mini convention in Abuja to elect a National Publicity Secretary.

He said he was waiting for the election to come up in Ekiti State, promising that the APC will replicate the successes it recorded in Edo and Ondo states.

Lalong said: “The one I am waiting for is Ekiti. I understand that after Ondo, the man has been saying he wants to come to APC; we are saying he should remain in PDP till after the election.

“We just came back from Ondo and we were  recruited again yesterday to go to Rivers. What we need is your usual and continued support.

“Before now, some people were looking down on APC, but now people with ambitions for 2019 are withdrawing from the PDP and coming to the APC. We are going to Rivers and we will win the elections there.

“After that, we are moving to Anambra and that one is a done deal.”

He said that the party was well positioned to win the December 10 legislative rerun elections in Rivers.
