Fayose floats presidential campaign
Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has abandoned his desire to seek re-election in 2018 as he has launched his presidential campaign on Facebook.
Fayose had initially said he would approach the Supreme Court to determine his eligibility to run again for the office of governor of his state because of his inability to complete his first term in office.
The governor, whose impeachment then had been declared null and void by the Supreme Court, had said there was need to finish his first four years in office.
The PDP had zoned the position of the party’s presidential candidate to the northern part of the country.
It is, however, not clear if the party would go back on this, but analysts believed that Fayose could be positioning himself for the position of running mate for the party’s presidential candidate.
The three organs of the party, which are the Expanded National Caucus, Board of Trustees and the National Executive Committee, met in Abuja in Monday. The meeting continues on Tuesday (today).
Fayose, is the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum.
