Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has described the recent Southwest Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) congress as a scam.
On Wednesday, he alleged that the congress held in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, was rigged.
Fayose alluded to intimidation, manipulation, violence and vote counting discrepancies, which he attributed to the Collation Officer, Senator Chris Anyanwu.
While conceding defeat, the former governor maintained that the poll was marred by malpractices.
Fayose stated that deceased and sick party members were accredited as delegates.
He, however, noted that he has accepted the outcome of the election and embraced Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, not because he was defeated but for the advancement of the party.
“For me, as to that election, it was a scam but I must agree as a leader of the PDP. I have been working for this party. I am one of the voices that cannot be forgotten in the PDP,” he said.
“And I will not sit down here and say because of 13 votes, because of manipulation, the party must not move forward.”
