Fayose emerges new Chairman of PDP Governors Forum

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has emerged the new Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum.

Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa made the announcement while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the Forum and PDP Caucus meeting which ended in the early hours of Friday in Abuja.

Addressing journalists shortly after the Forum’s meeting, Mr. Dickson stated that the forum decided to settle for Mr. Fayose based on his record of performance and as the most Senior governor under the platform of the party.

Flanked by other governors present at the meeting and the leaders of the party, Mr. Dickson said that the choice of Mr. Fayose was a collective one among the governors.

The Bayelsa governor, on behalf of the forum, expressed appreciation for the sacrifices and contributions of the outgoing chairman of the PDP Governors forum, Gov. Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state, to the forum and the party.

He said that the forum wished Mimiko well as he would continue to work as a leader to move PDP and the nation forward.
Mr. Fayose in his acceptance speech says  he would work with stakeholders, including the National Assembly, to restore the glory of the PDP.
“I take this responsibility at a time the party needs somebody to stand up. I am sure you all know that we will do it to represent Nigerians well. “It is a call to pull the walls of Jericho down; it is a call to make a difference.
“I want to assure you that within the next few months, the mobilisation, the consultation will be so effective and there will be a new beginning for our party – different and enriching,”
Fayose said. He also commended his predecessor, Mimiko, for his contributions to PDP, saying time would not permit him to continue.
“I will take over from where he stopped. Come 2019, we will take over again, we are going to come back again,” he said.

Fayose added that some people in their imaginations believed that PDP was divided but that in a short while, the party would be stronger than ever.

The forum was attended by top party leaders including Chairman of National Caretaker Committee of the party, Sen. Ahmed Makarfi, Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT), Sen. Walid Jubril, and Deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremadu.
