Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has threatened to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, if Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State is not given the party structure of the state.
He made this known ahead of preparations by the PDP chapter of Cross River State to name a new chairman.
In reaction, Femi Fani-Kayode warned the National Working Committee that he and others will leave the party if Ayade leaves on failing to clinch the party structure.
He said: “It would be a big mistake for the NWC of the @OfficialPDPNig to take the party structures in his state away from Ben Ayade, governor of Cross Rivers state, and hand them over to anyone else. If this is done and Ayade leaves the party be rest assured that many of us will leave with him.
“You cannot and must not undermine a sitting Governor or attempt to humiliate him in his own state and before his people. Some of those that are advocating and behind this nonsense would never allow it to happen in their own states. A word is enough for the wise.
“No-one, no matter how big or powerful, should think that they own the @OfficialPDPNig. If there is any attempt to undermine Ayaade it will spark off a crisis in the party that will split it right down the middle and the consequences will not be limited to Cross Rivers state.”
