Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has said that he would have burnt his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card if the court had declared Ali Modu Sheriff chairman of the party.
The Supreme Court had on Wednesday declared Ahmed Makarfi the authentic chairman of the party after 14 months of leadership tussle.
The Governor, in his address to his supporters in Ado-Ekiti, said that he would have destroyed his membership card of the party and the flag right at the court premises if the verdict had been in favour of Sheriff.
”I never imagined myself being in the same party with impostors.
”I went to court with a perfume which I wanted to use to spray my cards and party flags and set them ablaze even within the court premises if Sheriff had won; that was why I went to court.
”Although I believe that we remain the same PDP family, no one can cause our party such pains and embarrassment and expect that he will go without being asked to account for his actions,” the governor said.
Fayose further said, ”the ‘no victor, no vanquished’ that most of the party chieftain declared after the court judgement ”was a mere political slogan”
”Whoever that participated in this charade must show some reasonable level of remorse for his actions.”
