The statement signed by Banji Dada and Abayomi Olowomeye for EPIC and CDPM respectively says that the candidate was planted to help the candidate of the incumbent governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi of the Congress of All Progressives win the election in post of governor.
The groups said the Ayu-led leadership of the PDP’s national working committee remained unresponsive, clueless and lacked the intelligence to unravel a secret dumping ground opened by Fayemi and others.

The statement read in part:

“But footage surfaced showing Fayose with Fayemi and Governor Udom Emmanuel in a mood that betrayed the trust of PDP party members, and that was a shame.”
The groups added that the PDP primary election in the state witnessed the mutilation and exclusion of delegates’ names from the register, the deliberate disenfranchisement of many automatic delegates who were accredited but who were denied labels and barred from voting among many others.
