Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has likened former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff to a new bride who had to be dumped because she was found to be HIV positive.
Fayose said this while trying to explain how Sheriff has been forcing himself on the party. He also said that the party had to dump him due to his inability to manage its affairs.
According to ThisDay, the characteristically vocal Governor said: “Without a doubt, I did not beg him but I supported his coming. And when you act within ambits of time the information you have at a given time, I am not someone that will say I did not support Sheriff.” He reportedly said this on Thursday, June 16, 2016, after a meeting of PDP leaders in Abuja.
“But when you want to marry a woman, on the wedding day they tell you that the woman has HIV, will you still remain in the marriage? I am out of it,” he added.
Gov. Fayose explained that he was forced to withdraw his support to the former chairman after he was linked to the activities of Boko Haram. Sheriff was removed from the chairmanship position during the PDP’s National Convention on May 21, 2016.
But to think of it, people say they don’t want you again and you are busy imposing yourself on them. That is simply unacceptable…
