Fayose expressed: "How many state governors have supported their deputies to aspire to be governors?"

"The unprecedented orderliness and spirit of sportsmanship that pervaded the exercise is a clear testimony of the engrained values of fairness and strict adherence to internal democracy in the rebranded, repositioned and retooled PDP". The governor's remark were made Wednesday while fielding questions in the course of a programme anchored by the State's radio and television stations in Ado-Ekiti. I did not interfere with the process and I did not manipulate anything in favour of anybody.

"We note that our popularity in the state is a direct response to Governor Fayose's achievements in delivering democratic dividends to the people". Kolapo Oludola, Tuesday, said he was moving to another party to stop the continuity agenda of Fayose which he said was not in the best interest of Ekiti people.

Similarly, the PDP national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Ike Abonyi, yesterday, said the outcome of the primary is an indication that the era of imposition of candidates in the party was over.

Adeyeye, who lost the party's gubernatorial ticket to Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose's anointed candidate and Deputy Governor of the state, Prof. "I have nothing personal against anybody and Olusola has been loyal, effective and committed as my deputy and I can not repay him in a bad manner", he said. I did not hide my preference for my deputy among those seeking to succeed me as governor in our party, so, I was surprised at his reaction.

Although the exercise had been rescheduled, the party is still at war with itself as a result of the incident. He advised other political parties to emulate the Ekiti PDP example to avoid overheating the political temperature of the State.

He said: "I am leaving the party because party can change but your state cannot change, party can change, your hometown cannot change".
