    Landlord asks Ekiti PDP to quit secretariat

    The Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State has received an eviction notice, directing it to vacate its state secretariat in Ado Ekiti for failure to pay its rent.

    The landlord of the property, a two-term state PDP Chairman and now a member of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Ropo Adesanya, said the PDP issued him a dud cheque.

    Electricity supply to the party secretariat had been disconnected by the Benin Electricity Distribution Company as a result of unpaid bills.

    Adesanya, who was the PDP state chairman for eight years, including the tenure of Governor Ayo Fayose, is asking for N1.5m as owed rent.

    Describing the situation as “very embarrassing,” the acting Chairman of the PDP in the state, Tunde Olatunde, confirmed that the cheque issued to Adesanya was not honoured by the bank.

    Olatunde took over from the immediate past chairman of the party, Idowu Faleye, who was removed.

    Faleye, an ally of the governor, purportedly stepped down on May 13 following pressure from members of the state executive committee.

    Olatunde heads a faction which has 14 state working committee members and 51 members of SEC who are in the majority.

    He explained that Adesanya had already forwarded a petition to the Commissioner of Police, Ekiti State Command, Etop James, on the alleged issuance of a dud cheque.

    He said cash could not be drawn from the party’s account at an old generation bank despite the fact that the account had about N17m.

    Olatunde said, “The truth of the matter is that our party has been ejected for not paying our rent by our landlord, Chief Ropo Adesanya, who was our party chairman for eight years and who produced Mr. Governor in his first term.

    “We are owing the man N1.5m and we issued him a cheque of our account in an old generation bank that has about N17m at the time we were using it but mysteriously, the cheque was not honoured for no just cause.

    “Chief Ropo Adesanya has petitioned the Commissioner of Police for the issuance of dud cheque and the police have confirmed that there is money in that account.

    “The twist in the story is that Mr. Governor is saying that Adesanya bought the house nearly 10 years ago when they sent him (Fayose) on exile.
