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