Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation, has warned the National Working Committee NWC of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against taking over the party structures in Cross River State from Ben Ayade, the state Governor.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday night, Fani-Kayode noted such action would spark off crisis in the PDP.
He vowed that if any take over is done and Governor Ayade decides to leave, he alongside others will leave with the Governor.
“It would be a big mistake for the NWC of the @OfficialPDPNig to take the party structures in his state away from Ben Ayade, Gov. of Cross Rivers state,& hand them over to anyone else.If this is done & Ayade leaves the party be rest assured that many of us will leave with him,” he noted.
“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 Ayade it will spark off a crisis in the party that will split it right down the middle and the consequences will not be limited to Cross Rivers state.”
