Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in Ekiti State, Hon Bisi Kolawole has dismissed rumours of a rift between him and the party leader in the State, former Governor Ayo Fayose.
In a statement on Thursday, which he personally signed, Kolawole described reports that he said campaign funds should not be released to Fayose as handiwork of those who are threatened by the impending victory of the PDP in the governorship election.
According to him, Fayose has been solely financing the project of returning PDP to power in Ekiti State.
“We can only keep praying that God will give him more strength because to me, he is a God sent,” Kolawole said.
“Even while seeking votes from Ekiti people, we will use his achievements while in office as governor to convince the people about
our ability to deliver on our electoral promises.
“Those who are writing, thinking they can cause rift between us can continue, we in the PDP family are not bothered because we already
know their antics. And because they have nothing to tell the people, they must keep lying just as they did before the primary election
that they lost woefully.
“Before now, it was campaign vehicles of our Local Government Coordinators that they said were withdrawn. But when this did not fly
because the public are still seeing the coordinators with their vehicles, performing their functions in their various local councils,
they shifted to another lie.
“I am sure that by tomorrow, they will tell another lie now that this one has been bursted just like their previous ones.
“PDP members and supporters are therefore urged to keep ignoring all the lies from our detractors and focus on delivering Ekiti State to
our party come June 18.”
