The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Oyo state chapter on Sunday called on law enforcement agencies in the country to arrest Lere Olayinka, the South-West Zonal Director of Media and Publicity of the party for alleged impersonation.
Speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, monitored by Globalgistng, Engr. Akeem Olatunji, the Oyo State PDP Publicity Secretary said Olayinka is “merely a former spokesperson to former Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state and is not an elected official of the South-West zone of the party”.
While calling on the public to disregard Olayinka, Olatunji said the PDP in Oyo clearly understands the antics of Olayinka and his boss, which was to cause crisis in the PDP and then move to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Lere Olayinka used to be the spokesperson for the former governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose. He is not an official of PDP as far as we are concerned. Who made him South-West zonal director of media and publicity? He just arrogated the position to himself”.
“He is an impersonator and what he has done is criminal in nature. It is criminal of him to be parading himself as the South-West zonal director of media and publicity because there is no such position in the hierarchy of the PDP in South-West. The public should just disregard him and the law enforcement agencies should take note of this act of impersonation”.
“Lere Olayinka and his paymaster have been warned to desist from fanning the embers of discord in PDP because we believe that they have ulterior motive for doing that. They have a second option if they are expelled from PDP unlike Governor Seyi Makinde who has no other home aside the PDP” he said.
