Why I Am Dumping PDP – Fayose, Former Ekiti Governor Reveals | READ DETAILS

Barely four days after the 2023 presidential election, a former governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which came second position at the polls.

Formerly announcing his resignation on Arise TV on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, Fayose cited internal crisis in the party as the reason for his decision, adding that the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar was being misled by their national party chairman, Iyorchia Ayu to go against his earlier promise of running for a single term and hand over power to the south.

“Let me say this, from today(yesterday);  I step aside PDP because I must be talking like a leader in this country.” In party politics there are certain facts you must be able to speak. I am 62 and I can’t, at this age, begin lying. When something is wrong with your family, confess” Fayose said

He blamed the loss of the PDP in the presidential election on the leadership of the party, noting that the party was already fractured before the election, with so many aggrieved aspirants whom were allegedly swindled by the leadership of the party on one hand and the inability of the presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar to reach an agreement with the G-5 governors.

“I warned the PDP about this problem. if not resolved will consume this party, I told them there is Danger ahead. Watch it.

“I was invited by His Excellency Atiku Abubakar to a hotel in Lagos. I told him four things, that there were four demands they made of you. One, you are seventy-six as of last year. The G-5 said, you are already a candidate, you can’t abort a child that has been given birth to.

“But let us go back and tell the Southerners that you will spend four years so that it would not look like it will be eight to eight years back to back for the North because Buhari is leaving and he is representing the North irrespective of the party.

“They told his excellency to make his official announcement, not that he should hand it over to any member of the G-5. That you are going to spend four years and at that time you will be 80 years, all the people surrounding him disagree, that they can’t say such, when he becomes President he will say it, who does that? he queried

Fayose warned Labour Party’s candidate and second runner up in the presidential polls, Mr Peter Obi to “run away from the PDP” as the current ovation for the opposition has nothing to do with the PDP.

According to him, if the PDP had believed in Obi, they should have given him the party’s ticket.

He congratulated Obi for defeating Tinubu in Lagos, describing the former as “A phenomenon” and “the man of the moment”, stressing that Obi’s victory in Lagos has proved that things are no longer the same.

He argued that for Obi to win in Lagos shows the process was so transparent and as such the outcome of the election should be accepted by all.

Fayose attributed the credibility of the polls to the use of the BVAS which, according to him, is responsible for a realistic number of voters compared to the past when over a million votes were churned out from some states in the Northern part of the country.

He, however, faulted some of the protesters, calling for the cancellation of the polls, describing them as paid agents of the PDP.
