We are disappointed in you — PDP caucus reacts to Kayode's threat of quitting the party


Members of the National Assembly have reacted to Fani Kayode's threat of quitting the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alongside several other party men if the structures of the party were taken away from Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State.

The former Aviation Minister and Presidential spokesperson to President Jonathan/Sambo Presidential Campaign Committee, said it would be a big mistake for the National Working Commitee of the PDP to take away the party structures from the Cross River Governor in an attempt to humiliate him in his own state and before his people.


In a statement posted on his Facebook page, he said, "It would be a big mistake for the National Working Commitee of the PDP to take the party structures in his state away from Ben Ayade, the Governor of Cross Rivers state, and hand them over to anyone else. If this is done and Ayaade leaves the party be rest assured that many of us will leave with him.

"You cannot and must not undermine a sitting Governor or attempt to humiliate him in his own state and before his people. Some of those that are advocating and behind this nonsense would never allow it to happen in their own states. A word is enough for the wise.



"No-one, no matter how big or powerful, should think that they own the PDP. If there is any attempt to undermine Ayade it will spark off a crisis in the party that will split it right down the middle and the consequences will not be limited to Cross Rivers state."

However in it's reaction to Kayode, members of the state’s PDP caucus at the National Assembly, warned Kayode against dabbling into Cross River State politics, saying he should instead, concentrate his efforts in ensuring that the party wins election in his own state.


The house members issued the statement through Senators Gershom Bassey, Sandy Onor, Essien Ayi, Eta Mbora, Daniel Asuquo, Chris Agibe and Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe.

They said, “The National Assembly members from Cross River State are astonished that Fani-Kayode can get so ballistic on a matter he knows nothing about. He throws tantrums at the people that have sustained the party, while he is on sabbatical.



“We thought he was going to ask Governor Ayade certain salient questions before dabbling into the Cross River State matter. Did he ask Ayade if he could win Cross River State for PDP without the NASS members?"
