The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s National Working Committee led by its National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, on Thursday visited former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, to talk him out of leaving the opposition party.
Fani-Kayode has been under the party’s watch after having several public outing with Chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, including Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.
Pledging his loyalty to the PDP, the former minister of aviation said he had no intention of leaving the party. “If I had any concerns, such concerns are out of the windows already now. I’m a part of you and I will remain a part of you,” he said.
Meanwhile, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has decried calls by some persons in the PDP to postpone the Southwest Zonal Congress slated for March 6.
Addressing a news conference on Thursday in Ibadan, Makinde urged the National Working Committee of the party not to heed the call of the reactionary elements.
“I heard the disturbing news that our national working committee is planning to postpone the South-West Zonal Congress because some people went to court to complain about the venue for the conduct of the congress.
“PDP has moved from allowing, within its fold, reactionary elements to have their way.
“Maybe in the past, it was possible for the elements within PDP to collude with the national working committee to file cases where they are the plaintiff and the defendant,” Makinde said.
