2023: Peter ‘the rock’, Ayodele Fayose joins presidential race

Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has unfolded his ambition to serve as the next president.

“May I also state clearly that I will be seeking the ticket of the PDP to contest the next presidential election,” he said in a statement in Lagos.

The former Governor said he has never endorsed former Anambra Governor Peter Obi for president on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Fayose said the report credited to him that he had endorsed Obi and zoning of the Presidency to the Southeast is false.

Fayose added: “No doubt, I have great respect for Peter Obi as a leader and I respect his aspiration, but at no point did I endorse his presidential ambition or that the presidency is zoned to Southeast.

“Rather, my take is that the presidency be zoned to the Southern part of Nigeria.”
