Leadership tussle in leading opposition party, People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the South West of the country appears to take turn for worse after a group of like minds took on Kola Balogun, senator representing Oyo South after he recently attacked Ayo Fayose, former governor of Ekiti State.
The party in the region is suffering tension as a result of what observers called leadership tussle between Fayose and key political leaders in South West.
Balogun had in recent comment described Fayose as ‘leader of nuisance in South West PDP.
The Senator, through his media aide, Rotimi Johnson, described Fayose as a divisive element who had always been insurbodinate, rebellious and arrogant, saying he is a nuisance who can only attract like minds with disputable character.
But the group said that the comments attributed to the senator doesn’t make any iota of sense and can only come from someone whose level of reasoning requires comprehensive psychiatric evaluation.
The group made this known through its spokesperson, Babatunde Nafiu, via a news release which was sent to the South West bureau of elombah.com on Wednesday.
The group said that Balogun lacks the basis of assessing Fayose in the first place given, according to them, the senators scant achievement in politics.
“If someone could open his mouth to insult a person such as Fayose who had been the governor of a state twice, it should not be Senator Kola Balogun, whose track records is as empty as a warehouse without goods,” the group said.
“We recall that in his entire political life, he has only been a Commissioner and a campaign Director-General.
“The seat he is presently occupying came only on a platter pf Gold as he himself never knew he was going to win a senatorial election,” the group said.
