Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has disclosed that 30 governors of the Peoples Democratic Party were compelled to donate N10 million each to the Obasanjo Presidential Library in 2005.

The governor made the disclosure at the opening of a caucus meeting of the PDP in the South West in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital on Monday.

“We were compelled to make the donation as PDP governors in 2005 and now I need the return of my money with interest,” he said.

The Obasanjo presidential library was officially commissioned on Saturday in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Mr. Fayose did not say who compelled the governors to make the donation.

At Monday’s meeting, the PDP caucus passed a vote of confidence on the Ahmed Makarfi leadership of the party, while branding the Ali Modu Sheriff’s faction of the party “usurpers”.

Mr. Fayose said the former Borno governor pretends to be leading the party, while at the same time working with the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

“We, the committed members of this party will not allow this evil to work, because charlatans can’t be allowed to hijack our party,” he said.

“To me, the PDP is one under Ahmed Makarfi. I want you to be speaking out against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, nobody can kill you. The tough time we are passing through is just a phase as tough time never last but tough people do.

“They said the PDP people are corrupt, but if you look critically, the PDP are mere petty thieves while APC members are super robbers. They are only interested in destroying and oppressing our members while the people groan in sufferings. Today, the country is under emergency situation.

“They said we should use political means to settle our differences, let me say that even if we reconcile there are some people I can’t be in the same party with. They are dirty and people like us can’t associate with them.”

The governor urged PDP members to remain bold and undaunted in the face of perceived intimidation by agents of the APC, adding that God would soon move against those oppressing the party members.

In the communiqué issued later and read by the Ekiti State Deputy governor, Kolapo Olusola, stated that the party passed a vote of confidence on the Makarfi leadership and also declared support for the party’s appeal against the judgement of the Appeal Court, which validated the Sheriff-led Executive.

The party also expressed confidence in the leadership of Mr. Fayose as the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ forum and the Eddy Olafeso-led south west leadership.

Others leaders who attended meeting include former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniels; former Osun Deputy governor, Iyiola Omisore; former PDP Deputy Chairman, Bode George; former PDP National Vice Chairman, Tajudeen Oladipo; PDP Spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye, a member of the House of Representative from Ogun, Oladipupo Adebutu; Ebenezer Babatope, former Nigerian Ambassador to Greece, Olu Agbi, among others.

      Your comment is uncivilised and shows the level of your mentality. You need to withdraw your abuse and pocket it. Fayose has right to associate and speak freely.

    Obasanjo Presidential library as proceed of crime

    OBASANJO PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY is a proceed of crime to be treated as such.
    Those who attended the commissioning should feel ashamed of themselves for not
    knowing right from wrong. Anyone possessed of average intelligence ought to
    know that a public servant on monthly salary, as president of Nigeria, could
    never have afforded to build that library without dipping his hands into the
    public treasury. The Senate of the federal republic of Nigeria was apt when it
    recently adjudged General Olusegun Obasanjo as “the grandfather of
    corruption in Nigeria
    ”. His acquisitive instinct to take what does not
    belong to him is beyond compare.

    It is racketeering to instruct 30 state governors to deliver 10 million Naira each by
    directly stealing it from their state treasuries for any purpose. Obasanjo now has a
    criminal case to answer in due course. The knaves and morons who attended the
    commissioning of that presidential library, including a slew of hardly thinking and
    senseless traditional rulers; as well as the jaded Andrew Young and un-thinking
    Kofi Anan, are compellable witnesses to corrupt thefts.

    We now have
    testimony as evidence that General Obasanjo coaxed 30 state governors
    in his PDP party to rob 30 state treasuries and deliver the proceeds of crime
    to him as personal asset. This is a crime that will be prosecuted at the
    earliest opportunity or as soon as the aider and abettor called General
    Muhamadu Buhari is got rid of. A presidential library funded from robbery raid
    on 30 states treasuries is public property that must be seized and vested in
    the Government of Nigeria. General Obasanjo will be taking further step in
    criminal fraud should he write down Obasanjo Presidential Library as personal
    asset to be passed unto his children under his written will.

    Branting of a mad man to an audience of former.. former will end in failure.

  • Nkem

    The good thing is that nobody seem to pay attention to this nuisance of of inestimable value. I hope they will continue to ignore him and never respond to him as he would wish.

    • dave jacob

      We all knew then that the Obasanjo rogue coerced his party people and the rogues he had corruptly made rich to donate to the filth called library. That it now came out from a fellow rogue who was one of those who did the donation then is compelling, and being one of the many proofs and evidences for the nitwits and those born into servitude, who would always ask for the evidence of Olusegun Obasanjo’s corrupt life in power, just because succeeding moronic gvts have refused to probe him despite numerous indictments.

    • dave jacob

      In addition, as Richard Wright asked in his novel, The Outsider: “Who best could track down criminals than reformed criminals?” Unfortunately, Fayose is not a reformed criminal, just like Olusegun Obasanjo; both of them are criminals waiting to be JAILED. I am very glad the PMB EFCC would go after Fayose after his governorship; then we would have the opportunity to hear from Fayose other larcenous actions and moments of Olusegun Obasanjo when he was in power.

  • Adam Abbas

    The first TRUE and REASONABLE COMMENT FROM FAYOSE was ” PDP Members are petty thieves while APC Members are super Robbers”.

  • Impulse400

    In their infinite wisdom they chose Fayose to speak on their behalf, and they stood around him while he sank them.

    “Petty Thieves and Super Robbers; the story of Nigeria’s politics so far (1914 – 2017)”. Hmmm… looks like a good caption for a book title.
