Fayose launches presidential campaign
Fayose: Ekiti governor flags-off presidential campaign
Governor of Ekiti state, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, on Saturday stormed the non-elective convention of PDP with his presidential election campaign team with banners and customized dresses.
This was to further prove his desire to contest the presidential election in 2019.
Fayose and his team paraded round the Eagles Square, to the admiration of delegates to the convention.
In June 2017 when he declared his intention, he said: “I want to be the next president of Nigeria. My own won’t be this change that has brought nothing, we are going to represent the people well and tell them the truth.’’
Fayose expressed optimism on being the president by saying that from 2019, he would be attending to the needs of Nigerians from the Presidential Villa.
He assured that the governors would continue to align with the ideals of the party and support it to regain power.
Fayose said, “The crowd here in the convention arena is a testimony of what is happening in Nigeria; the party is now a religion and a belief that we are going back to `our villa’.
“I am going there; I don’t know how many of you will be ready to go there.
“PDP will take Nigeria out of one chance and give it plenty chances.
“We made a mistake but our ability to correct is the one that is important; we fell and we are bound to rise, so, it is time to arise and shine and let your light be seen be men,’’ he said.
Fayose added that Nigeria would be liberated from poverty that had set into national life since PDP left office.
