The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmakers in the Ekiti State House of Assembly on Tuesday revealed that the immediate past governor of the State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose instructed them to work with Governor Kayode Fayemi in the interest of the state.
The PDP lawmakers, who made the revelation when the Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mr. Adewumi Olusegun briefed newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital on behalf of other PDP caucus members denied reports that they had defected to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
His words: “We remain committed members of the PDP as against insinuations in some quarters that we have decamped to APC.
“We make bold to say that our support for the state governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi was at the instance of the outgone governor, Ayodele Fayose who directed that we should co-operate with the governor- elect in the interest of Ekiti State.
“It was on this premise of the advice that we acted because Ekiti agenda is bigger than any individual or political party.”
