Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has threatened to dump PDP if the Supreme Court ruling does not favour the Makarfi-led faction in the leadership face-off with Ali Modu Sherrif.
Fayose said this to newsmen on Tuesday while reacting to media reports that he had removed the name and logo of PDP from his campaign office mini signposts mounted on Ado and Ikere-Ekiti roads.
Fayose said that he remains a bona fide member of the PDP until the outcome of the court ruling. PDP has been in a leadership crisis since they lost the election in 2015.
Despite reconciliation efforts, the governor has stated several times that he does not recognise Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the party’s leader.
On February 17, 2017, a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt had ruled that the caretaker committee headed by Makarfi was illegal and could not act on behalf of the PDP.
Makarfi approached the Supreme Court to appeal the judgment. The apex court will deliver judgment on May 25th.
