The Chairman of PDP and Council Secretary said, “this is the legal and legitimate gathering for the event, this is the centre of the leadership of the party in Ekiti State. Any other gathering is not only illegal but it is also provocative but we shall not be provoked. Wherever the party chairman is that is the centre and since the state party chairman is here, and it is this only place that this inauguration remain valid.
In his speech after the inauguration, the chairman, Prof Olusola said: “I want to assure that this is the only legitimate campaign council for Atiku/Obi in Ekiti, there is no alternative leader. Our leader is Peter Ayodele Fayose, any other council where my name appears as chairman but not this one, is illegal.
And I assure you all our candidates, we will not disappoint you, our party, and our leaders and the Atiku and Obi.
