Former Governor of Ekiti State , Mr Ayodele Fayose , on Saturday , said he had no personal issues with Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State over the running of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South -West .
He also urged the Ondo State Deputy Governor , Agboola Ajayi , to return to the PDP.
The former governor also noted that he would not join the political enemies of former Lagos State governor and the All Progressives Congress national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu , to shoot him down politically .
Fayose spoke at his Afao Ekiti residence in Ekiti State as part of activities for his 60 th birthday anniversary .
He said , “ There is nothing to worry about . If Governor Seyi Makinde and I have issues , Nigerians should not worry themselves about that ; it is not personal . There is no regional government . Every power lies in the state . Structures in Ekiti are different from structures in Oyo ; structures in Oyo are different from structures in Lagos.
“ I was the one who went to flag off Governor Makinde ’ s campaign in Ogbomoso . So, I cannot work for his failure . Whether he is backing Senator Biodun Olujimi or not, the fact remains that the struggle for the control of party structures in Ekiti has come and gone .
“ We won the congresses, but they are in court . If the court says it is Olujimi that is right , we would follow her and if the court says she has no case , they should join us so that we can move the party forward . Let us pursue our interests legitimately in manners that will create peace in the region.”
Fayose , who played host to the Ondo deputy governor , urged him to return to the PDP, saying , “ It is important for you (Ajayi ) to put the past behind , return to the PDP and join hands with other leaders in the state to rebuild the party. ”
