Chief Ebenezer Babatope, former Minister of Transport on Saturday said those plotting to make the South-West irrelevant in the affaira of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) will be put to shame.
Speaking with INDEPENDENT, Babatope who was the Director-General of the Bode George Campaign Organisation said he and other Yoruba leaders in the PDP will make it a fight to finish with those plotting to relegate the zone to the background.
He also denied reports that he is planning to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) describing the report as “tissues of lies”.
“We are going to battle it out in PDP and i have no reason to go anywhere. Those who want to destroy the Yoruba race we will never leave them alone”.
“We will allow the PDP to destroy itself but i will never leave PDP for APC. Those linking me with APC are just telling lies. I am not joining APC for anything”.
“The Yoruba will never accept any attempt to insult our people and denigrate our collective intelligence” he said
