The Immediate past governor of Ekiti state, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has pleaded to the aggrieved members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state to forgive him of all his past mistakes while in office.
Fayose begged for forgiveness at his Afao-Ekiti countryhome while addressing party members across the 16 local government areas and the 177 wards in the state on Tuesday, December 10, 2019.
He apologised to all aggrieved members who he said he might have wronged while in government and urged them to put the past behind them.
According to him, he is doing this after one year of leaving office just to allow the present All Progressives Congress (APC) to display what they have for the people to see for themselves.
Fayosa called on the aggrieved PDP members to embrace his peace initiative and work together with unity of purpose and togetherness to reposition the party ahead of future elections in the state.
“We are on a mission to reposition the party because truly we need a new attitude as members of this party.
”We must tell ourselves the truth that there is nothing to share in failure and we must join hands to achieve something tangible.
”I know some persons are aggrieved and I know we are humans. I apologise to all those that I have offended.
”Let us come together in unity for this our party not to die in this state. That is my priority as the leader.
”I am doing this after one year of leaving office just to allow the present All Progressives Congress (APC) to display what they have for the people and you can all see for yourselves.
”I am not here for my selfish interest but just to ensure this party does not fail,” Fayose said.
The former governor, who used the meeting to officially congratulate Sen. Biodun Olujimi, on her recent victory as the lawmaker representing Ekiti South Senatorial District, noted that she remained a leader of the party in the state.
”Everybody should come back to the party. I am open to reconciliation.
”If Sen. Biodun Olujimi calls you for meeting tomorrow, go there and listen to her. All of us are leaders , don’t let us factionalise this party.
”I am congratulating her (Olujimi) and I don’t have any issue with her and I am sorry for what happened in the past,” he said.
