|Fayose: no regrets breaking up PDP||5/8/2008|
By Kelvin Osa-Okunbor
Fayose, who was travelling abroad for medical treatment, told reporters in Lagos that he had no regrets in leading a faction of the PDP in the state.
He said:"That there is a problem in PDP in Ekiti State is not deniable. And if the problem is not well managed, it will have great consequences on the party. In life, when you start trouble, you may not know where it would end.
"The situation in Ekiti calls for caution because all is not well with the party, PDP. Without doubt, I am part of the other group and I stand to say I am part of it and I will continue to be part of the group until justice is done.
"When we started the PDP, when I contested, I contested under a party that we built together. We labour for the party; and today the governor and his cohorts are driving away the original members who laboured for the party.
"At the meeting at Ota, he (Oni) said he preferred those who decamped to old members. We would want to see how far those who decamped would take him and we are waiting for the tribunal to give the judgment."
Fayose said his faction was waiting for the party leadership to finish its reconciliation to know what next to do.
"If it measures up to our expectation, fine. If not, we would continue with the struggle. It is a struggle. We cannot leave our house for tenants," he added.
Asked to assess the situation in the state, he said: "When you fall from somewhere, you look at the consequences of your fall and you address it. One of the things that caused problems in the state is because a few cliques connived and conspired to cause the whole state to fall on its knees because of their selfish agenda.
