PARTY CRISIS: Femi Fani Kayode threatens to dump PDP
The former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode popularly known as FFK, has threatened to dump the Peoples Democratic Party PDP should the Cross-River Governor Ben Ayade be striped off his party Chairmanship in Cross-River.
Fani-Kayode who dished this threat on Twitter said it would be a big mistake for the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) to undermine a sitting Governor or attempt to humiliate him in his own state and before his people.
FFK also noted that majority of the party faithful might also dump the party should the party structure in Cross River State is taken away from its Governor.
The Tweet Reads Thus:
“It would be a big mistake for the NWC of the @OfficialPDPNig to take the party structures in his state away from Ben Ayaade,Gov. of Cross Rivers state,& hand them over to anyone else.If this is done &Ayaade leaves the party be rest assured that many of us will leave with him.
“…You cannot and must not undermine a sitting Governor or attempt to humiliate him in his own state and before his people. Some of those that are advocating & behind this nonsense would never allow it to happen in their own states. A word is enough for the wise.
“…No-one, no matter how big or powerful, should think that they own the @OfficialPDPNig. If there is any attempt to undermine Ayaade it will spark off a crisis in the party thst will split it right down the middle and the consequences will not be limited to Cross Rivers state.”
