Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister, has revealed reasons he may quit the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Fani-Kayode warned the PDP not to take the party structures from Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State, saying the party would collapse if it does so.
He stated that if Ayade, out of anger leaves the PDP, he would go with him.
Fani-Kayode described the planned action by the party as undermining to a state governor, warning that it could create a crisis within the party.
“It would be a big mistake for the NWC of the @OfficialPDPNig to take the party structures in his state away from Ben Ayaade,Gov. of Cross Rivers state,& hand them over to anyone else.If this is done &Ayaade leaves the party be rest assured that many of us will leave with him.
“You cannot and must not undermine a sitting Governor or attempt to humiliate him in his own state and before his people. Some of those that are advocating & behind this nonsense would never allow it to happen in their own states. A word is enough for the wise.
“No-one, no matter how big or powerful, should think that they own the @OfficialPDPNig If there is any attempt to undermine Ayaade it will spark off a crisis in the party thst will split it right down the middle and the consequences will not be limited to Cross Rivers state,” he tweeted.
