The relative peace in the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been challenged with a new faceoff that is already brewing between the Governor of Oyo State and the Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose over the allegation that he was bribed with N20 million to support Asiwaju Bola Tinubu ambition to become President in 2023.
In a Press Release by the Oyo State PDP Vanguard available to SOJ WORLDWIDE, it accused one Dare Adeleke who is an aide to the Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde for accusing Fayose for anti party activities.
According to the PDP Vanguard, Adeleke alleged that Fayose was bribed with N20 million to support Bola Tinubu presidential ambition in 2023.

The persistent attacks on the former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, by appointees of the Oyo State Governor, Engr Seyi Makinde, has been described as a clear sign that the governor is not interested in peace and unity of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the Southwest zone.
This position was expressed by the Oyo State PDP Vanguard in its reaction to a statement today, by one Dare Adeleke, Chairman of the Oyo State’s Transport Corporation, casting aspersion on the person of Fayose.
The PDP Vanguard said it was funny that Dare Adeleke could take “the advertisement of his political stupidity and childishness to the most ridiculous level of jumping to the rooftop to announce that Fayose was given 20 million Naira to be part of the South West Agenda, SWAGA, a group campaigning for Senator Bola Tinubu for 2023 presidency.
The statement reads:”The attention of the Oyo PDP Vanguard has been drawn to an irrelevant and mischievous letter written by one Dare Adeleke from Oyo state to PDP National Chairman, Board of Trustee and National EXCO members insisting that, the ex-Ekiti state governor Ayo Fayose is romancing with a certain opposition leader and making attempt at destabilizing and polarising the South West PDP.
To us, Dare Adeleke and the governor he is speaking for are little minds who are suffering from psychological poverty such that they now see N20 million as big money to sway a man like Fayose to support Asiwaju Tinubu’s ambition through SWAGA.
“After reading the said letter, we expressed our disappointment in the said Dare Adeleke for his political pettiness, thou, we know him to be a political bootlicker.
“Ordinarily, we would not have reacted to the statement but we see the letter as attempt to pull down the former governor. The letter is not factual. It is an attempt to score political points.
Without mincing words, a person like Dare Adeleke’s political opinion and contributions should always be double checked before accepting it because he is such a politician who still rely in those above him to attain his political next level but it is glaring he has chosen a wrong political figure to toy with.
The Fayose that we know is about the only critical voice against tyranny in the country when majority of supposedly able leaders were political bed ridden.
Most importantly, the manifestation of Fayose 2023 presidential ambition is on our mind and not the pettiness of the Dare Adeleke and his principal and we won’t be distracted.
Finally, our group is appealing to Dare Adeleke, the author of the reckless letter to avoid stirring the relative peace needed for our party’s survival, it is necessary for him to adopt other options if he has any axe to grind with ex governor Fayose, enough of his stylishness using the peace of our party to fight for his own selfish interest.”
