A chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party and immediate past deputy governor of Ekiti State, Professor Kolapo Olusola Eleka, has affirmed his utmost respect for the former governor of the state, H.E Ayodele Fayose, and other leaders of the party in Ekiti State, saying that under no circumstance will he disparage the character of anyone.
Professor Eleka’s aide, Mr Adebisi Adeola, while reacting to a misleading report titled ‘DELEGATES WILL REJECT YOUR AGENDA, ELEKA FIRES AT FAYOSE’, circulated on WhatsApp platforms, distanced his boss from the ruse.
The aide stated that Eleka did not author any statement against the former Governor nor any other leaders of Ekiti PDP, hence the report should be disregarded outrightly.
He said: “His Excellency, Professor Olusola Eleka, did not author nor commission anyone to disparage Ekiti leaders nor members of our great party, PDP.
“This satanic gang-up has been going on for a long time using various ploys. The same media hype personnel were involved in the fake news against Prof. Eleka, having a deal to step down or deputize another Aspirant”, Mr Adeola stated.
He maintained that Eleka will never join other political folks to engage in character assassination as being done by some people.
“For the record, Professor Eleka has publicly and privately preached oneness and unity irrespective of political ambitions and views. He is a man that would not engage himself in character assassination of party leaders nor encourage such from any of his followers.
“It is even ironic that I was mentioned as the author of the report. Perhaps, in their imagination.
“Members of our great party, more particularly the delegates, are objective and knows whom the cap fit irrespective of any media hype,” Adeola concluded.
