PDP Southwest congress will hold as scheduled – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said that the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) Southwest Zonal Congress slated for Saturday in
Akure, Ondo State will hold as scheduled.

The governor, who addressed journalists at the PDP National
Secretariat in Abuja today, said materials for the Congress had
already been distributed through the appropriate authority.

He said the party was not aware of any court order, stopping the
congress and as such, machinery is in motion for a hitch-free

“I can confirm that materials for the Congress have been handed to the
Congress Committee and the committee is set for the Congress.

“Anyone talking about court order is only deceiving himself and it is
now time for the party to operate devoid of any abracabra court

“I therefore urge all delegates and leaders of our party to converge
on Akure on Saturday for the Congress as scheduled,” the governor

While calling on elders of the party to take the backstage and play
advisory role, the governor said; “Those who have occupied exalted
positions in the party should be ready to bow out graciously for the
emergence of new blood burning with ideas, especially the youths who
are not Abuja based but popular at home.”

He said; “In as much as we respect and appreciate all our elders, they
must act in a way that the overall interests of our party and its
members will not be jeopardised.”

He said the era of people forcing themselves on the party, using court
orders is gone and anyone interested in party positions must be ready
to face elections.
