2023: I’m ready to work for PDP victory —Faboyede, warns against disparaging Mimiko


..….I’ll never defect from PDP

A former Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, Clement Faboyede, has declared that he has accepted results of the primary of the Ondo Central senatorial district and ready to work with the winner Adedipe Ifedayo, SAN, to secure victory at the general election.

Faboyede said that he would not defect from the party despite failing to secure the party’s ticket to represent Ondo Central senatorial district.

Speaking to journalists in Akure, Faboyede debunked viral statements disparaging former Governor Olusegun Mimiko and other PDP leaders over outcome of the party primary.

According to Faboyede, as a core party man, he will never abandon the party, particularly that he gave his all to the party when PDP was down in the state.

The former PDP Chairman who was reacting to the outcome of senatorial primaries of the party in the Ondo Central Senatorial District where he came third said the process was free and fair.

Faboyede lost the PDP primary to Adedipe Ifedayo, SAN, who scored 82 votes.

He said, “The primary was free and fair, that is the truth. The atmosphere was conducive, devoid of rancour and the followed all the procedures. I accept the outcome of that primary.

“I want to make it abundantly clear that without malice I stand and I have never asked anybody either on Facebook of WhatsApp to start casting aspersions and derogatory languages on my leader, Dr Rahman Olusegun Mimiko.

“I want to make it clear that I have no grudge against anybody. If PDP picks anybody tomorrow, on PDP I stand, I will still perform and Ifedore will still deliver.

“I’m a PDP person and a party man to the core. I was the chairman of the party in the state when it was in tatters and down. When I came out of incarceration courtesy of APC victimisation, I was assisted by Eyitayo Jegede SAN to put the party back to its footing.

“We had two senators out of three, three House of Representatives members out nine and we came first for our presidential flag bearer then, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the Southwest.”

Faboyede added that “The man that carried the day, Ifedayo Adedipe, I have absolute and maximum respect for him. He is our community leader, a well known Senior Advocate of Nigeria SAN, a highly successful lawyer.

“He has called me twice and we had useful discussions, and I appreciate him for his elderly talks as well as his sportsmanship attitude.”
