Immediate-past Ekiti governor, Ayodele Fayose, has warned Governor Seyi Makinde to steer clear of the State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, or risks incurring his wrath.

Fayose issued this warning on Wednesday when he led PDP National delegates including state chairmen of Osun, Ekiti, and Lagos to Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.

The ex-governor said Makinde is overstepping his boundary in the party in Southwest and may incur his wrath if he treads into Ekiti PDP.

 “There has been a reasonable cold war of who and who becomes the executive of the zone. Governor Makinde has demanded that the zonal executive be sacked and a caretaker be fostered on the zone which the party did.

“But, since the caretaker committee came into being, he has not allowed them to function because he produced the chairman.

“Beyond that, the fact that there is a sitting governor does not say I should go to another man’s state. Nobody should come to my state; if you come to my state, I will face you squarely,” he said.
