Shortly after the primary, Adeyeye, a former minister, who came second with 771 votes, said he could not work with Fayose.

Fayose expressed: "How many state governors have supported their deputies to aspire to be governors?"

Meanwhile, Fayose has accused the former PDP National Publicity Secretary of the PDP of raining curses on him when he called to plead with him to accept the result of the Tuesday governorship primary election in good faith.

One of the governorship aspirant in the just concluded Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary, Mr Dayo Adeyeye, reveals that he is dumping his party for another in order to realise his ambition of providing rapid development in the state.

Adeyeye argued that it would not make sense that Ekiti State is ruined due to party affiliation.

He also pointed out that the pattern of voting at the venue of the primary based on local government areas instilled fear in many delegates that they were being monitored.

Adeyeye lost to Olusola who has been the choice of the state governor, Ayodele Fayose, although the governor had promised a level-playing field for aspirants in the poll.

"We declare that all members of the Party in Ekiti must become active and ready to go the extra mile to ensure victory for the Party".

The former Minister claimed that Fayose has wasted N8 billion Ekiti funds on chartered flights in the last three and half years while the flyover project was jerked up from N5 billion to N17 billion.

National Vice Chairman of the party, South West Zone, Dr Eddy Olafeso in a statement in Akure said that the party would win the election with the calibre of Prof Eleka as its candidate. Kolapo Olusola Eleka, as the governorship candidate of the party for the July 2018 gubernatorial election.

"Our party leaders in Abuja were surprised at my performance at the primary despite the intimidation but I told them that I can change party".

While congratulating Fayose and all the party stakeholders and members in the state, Secondus said "the real victor from the exercise is democracy and not any individual as the PDP family in Ekiti would be healthier from the primary". That is why we will take decision today on where we are going.
