Remain in PDP till 2018; Lalong to Fayose

Lalong told newsmen at the mini convention of party in Abuja to elect a National Publicity Secretary for the party that he was eagerly waiting for the elections to come up in the state, promising that the APC will replicate the successes the party recorded in Edo and Ondo States when the Ekiti election is conducted.

Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau state Thursday told his Ekiti state counterpart, Ayodele Fayose to erase the idea of leaving his party from his mind, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and joining another party to contest the 2018 elections in the state.

Even though he did not state where he intends to pitch his tent, the Ekiti state governor was quoted by media reports as saying that he was considering leaving the PDP and seeking an alternative party to contest the election.

Lalong said: “the one I am waiting for is Ekiti. I understand that after Ondo, the man has been saying he wants to come to APC, we are saying he should remain in PDP till after the election.

However, the Plateau state governor said Governor Fayose will not be welcome in the All Progressives Congress (APC) now until after the party would have taken over his state from the PDP in 2018.

“Before now, some people were looking down on APC, but now people with ambitions for 2019 are withdrawing from the PDP and coming to the APC. We are going to Rivers and we will win the elections there. After there, we are moving to Anambra and that one is a done deal.”

“We just came back from Ondo and we were again recruited Thursday to go to Rivers again and conduct another election. Our own is to ask for your usual and continued support.

He however assured that the party was well positioned to win the forth coming legislative rerun election in Rivers stage scheduled for December 10.
