2019: Despite PDP’s zoning of presidential ticket to North, Fayose insists he’ll contest


Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has insisted that he would contest for president despite Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s zoning of its 2019 presidential ticket to the North.

Fayose said he decided to slow down on his campaign because of the upcoming July 14, 2018 governorship election in the state, adding that his campaign would kick-off immediately after the state election.

Fayose who stated this yesterday during an interactive session with teachers in public primary and secondary schools at the government house in Ado Ekiti, also spoke on the PDP’s readiness for the upcoming governorship election.

Fayose said, “I am still in the presidential race I am only waiting for the time Ekiti governorship election will hold so I can have the time. Though, I am making contacts, I am reaching out to the people that matter across the country.

“I have no regret supporting Olusola , if it were those people I had supported, they won’t be abusing me.  But they remain our brothers and sister and we are going to put our house in order at the right time so that we can be on the same page”, Fayose added.

Addressing the teachers, Fayose appealed to them to support Olusola the way they did to him in June 21, 2014 governorship election in which he defeated Dr Kayode Fayemi.

“Don’t vote for those that will come here and sack you. When they sacked your colleagues in Kaduna State, cannot good for Ekiti teachers.

“Prof Olusola is a man of integrity, very hardworking and dependable , he won’t betray you. He will protect your interests and I want you to support him”.
