Opposition is mounting against moves by the former deputy national chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC, Chief Segun Oni to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as the former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose declared he is not welcomed in the party.

Reacting to a declaration letter, dated 24th May 2020, addressed to the PDP Caretaker Committee by Chief Segun Oni indicating his interest to return to PDP, Fayose said no one with paperweight would be allowed to decamp to the Ekiti State Chapter of the PDP henceforth.

Extract from the 9-pages letter, Oni said; “At our consultative meeting on the 15th March, 2020, we took a decision to leave the APC for PDP. Our purpose of writing this letter is to inform you formally that we have since directed our members to join the PDP at their respective Wards and that, as soon as the Covid19 restrictions permit, we would like to mark our declaration with a rally at Ado Ekiti. This will be in full consultation and agreement with you.”

Oni’s decision to return to PDP seems to have reawakened the long-time rift between the two former governors.

Describing Chief Segun Oni and his group as paperweights, Fayose who forwarded the Oni’s letter to the official PDP WhatsApp platform said there is no room for Oni and his group in PDP.

Fayose said; “majority of these Oni’s fellow returnees are nothing but known or NO weight, whose names are simply to fill the gaps in desperation for recognition. No welcome to them all.”
