Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose has laughed off his suspension from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by its National Working Committee (NWC).
He described the announcement as a nullity and a joke taken too far, noting that the actions of the PDP NWC under Senator Iyorchia Ayu lack moral and constitutional backing.
The party, through its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ogunagba on Thursday announced the suspension of Fayose, Senator Anyim Pius and two others over alleged anti-party activities.
In a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, the ex-governor, said the suspension was nothing but the last kick of a dead horse.
Fayose stated that the actions and inactions orchestrated by those he called jesters would not stand as they were taken in flagrant disregard for the party’s operational legal framework.
“Ayu and his cohorts are only entertaining themselves with the purported suspension as their latest comedy skit.
”In a matter of days, the inglorious tenure of Ayu as national chairman of PDP will become history and the party will enjoy a new lease of life,” he added.
