The Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose says he may dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) if the outcome of the Supreme Court verdict on the leadership tussle within the party does not favour the Makarfi-led caretaker committee.

The governor disclosed this to newsmen on Tuesday while reacting to media reports that he had removed the name and logo of the PDP from his campaign office and mini signposts mounted on Ado and Ikere-Ekiti roads.

Fayose, however, stated that he remains a bonafide member of the PDP, until the outcome of the court judgement.

Despite reconciliation efforts, the governor has stated several times that he does not recognise Senator Sheriff as the party’s leader.

On February 17, a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, ruled that the caretaker committee headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi was illegal and could not act on behalf of the PDP.

Meanwhile, the governor also met with youths in the state where he called for more support for his administration and enjoined them to come out en masse on May 19, to honor the late former Governor of the Southwest Region, General Adeyinka Adebayo.
