The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Dayo Adeyeye has terminated his appointment as the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman, Governing Council of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti.
It was gathered that Adeyeye’s resignation was not unconnected with his desire to contest the Ekiti State governorship election and his rejection of the unilateral adoption of Prof. Kolapo Olusola, the Ekiti State Deputy Governor, as the candidate of the PDP for the 2018 governorship election.
It would be recalled that Prince Adeyeye, through a statement by his campaign organization, Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement, had stoically rejected the decision of some party members who hurriedly organized stakeholders meeting held at the Ekiti State Government House, Ado Ekiti on Wednesday to endorse Prof. Olusola as the PDP Governorship candidate in the state.
When contacted, Prince Adeyeye confirmed that he has resigned his position in the Ekiti State University and has communicated same to Governor Fayose through the right channel.
