The South-West zone of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it was concerned about the travails of former governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose in the hands of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Vice-Chairman of the party, Dr Eddy Olefesou, at a stakeholders meeting on Friday, urged members of the party to stand with Fayose at his trying moment.
He insisted that the former governor was paying for being truthful and standing against injustice.
“I was in the court the last time and I am glad to tell you that he has been granted bail.
“We will do our best to ensure that he perfects his bail conditions and he is released soon,” he said.
Olafeso also said he was confident that the verdicts of the Osun and Ekiti governorship elections, where the All Progressives Congress was declared winner in both polls, would be upturned at the tribunal.
Olafeso urged members to be leave behind post-primaries disagreements and work together to ensure the party’s victory in 2019.
He said the party had come out of its recent factional crisis to emerge strong, expressing the confidence that it would dislodge APC in 2019.
