Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the resignation
of British Labour Party leader,  Ed Miliband and Liberal Democrats
leader, Nick Clegg over their parties’ woeful performance in the last
Thursday’s general election in their as a vindication of his call for the
resignation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman,
Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu.
The governor in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on
Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, that he had no
personal score to settle with the PDP National Chairman, said that;
“It is morally wrong for the National Chairman to remain in office
after leading the party into its first national electoral loss.”

Three party leaders in Britain, including opposition Labour Party
leader, Ed Miliband and Liberal Democrats leader, Nick Clegg
resigned on Friday, after their parties’ loss in the Thursday general
 Fayose further said: “Alhaji Mu’azu should be honourable enough to follow the same path as the British LP and Democrats party leaders.
“Mu’azu’s case is even worse than that of the British party leaders,
who resigned immediately their party lost because majority of PDP
members no longer have confidence in his (Mu’azu) leadership and there
is no way a willing leader can be forced on an unwilling followers.”
Speaking further, the governor said; “This is not about any
personality and I am also not operating here on empty boast because
Ekiti State was delivered to the PDP 100 percent.
“Rather, it is about issues. Imagine the PDP not getting up to five
percent of the votes in Bauchi State, the National Chairman’s home-state and someone is still not being honourable enough to resign.
“Haven’t we now seen what operates in saner climes with the resignation of the British LP and Democrat leaders? Shouldn’t our party National Chairman also take a cue from this and allow for fresh minds to steer the ship of the party at this difficult time?
“Methinks leaders in this country should learn from their counterparts
in other climes because like I said earlier, when a war commander
leads his troop to an embarrassing defeat, such commander does not
need anyone to tell him that he needs to leave the war front for another commander to take over.”
