The crisis between the ex-governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, and Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde, took another twist on Thursday, February 25.

The Nation reports that Fayose described the Makinde as a failed governor who does not deserve re-election.

Legit.ng gathered that he said the governor had decided to betray party elders, who assisted him during the electioneering by turning his back against them.

The former governor, however, ruled out any reconciliation with Makinde, saying that the governor is an obstacle to dialogue.

Fayose said that Makinde had the effrontery to query the decision of the National Working Committee (NWC) on critical party matters, thereby making a mess of party leadership.

He alleged that the governor was behaving like a politician itching to run the NWC along with his state, adding that he had evolved some strategies for division and polarisation of the party in the southwest.

The former governor was reacting to comments by Makinde, who vowed to ensure that reactionary elements within the southwest PDP would be fought and defeated.

He said the zonal chapter would explore legitimate avenues to get the chieftains to do what is right for the party.

Fayose, however, said the Makinde had deluded himself into thinking that he is the zonal leader because he is governor.

He said:

“Makinde is a failed governor. He has proved it by his inability to protect the people of Oyo State. He has demonstrated more than enough reasons not to be fielded as our PDP candidate again. He has betrayed trust and in our group, we will not sit with him in dialogue.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that former governor Fayose maintained his interest in becoming Nigeria's next president if opportunity permits.

It was reported that Fayose who made the disclosure in an interview on Wednesday, February 24, stated that the office of the president is a noble one.

Fayose noted that the only interest he has is that a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president must be put in place.
