Ekiti State Governor Fayose declare intention to run for president in 2019

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose formally decalre his intention to run for president in 2019 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The public declaration which was done with fanfare at the Chelsea Hotel, Abuja, is in spite of the PDP’s position to zone the presidential ticket to the north.

 Fayose said in his specch that his intention to run for president in 2019 on the platform of the PDP “is without prejudice to our party’s position.”

He said. “Most importantly, despite that the party has zoned the presidency to the North, it may interest you that no one has come out in this manner to show interest and our party should not wait or beg anyone to fly its flag,” 

“Do we now say that if no one comes out from the North, the party won’t have a candidate?”

“Also in 2007, some party members from the South did not only declare their intention to contest, they also showed interest and obtained nomination forms. Those from the South were Chief Victor Attah, Dr. Peter Odili, Dr. Sam Egwu, Dr. Donald Duke, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani, Owelle Rochas Okorocha among others. This, in itself, assisted in deepening democracy,”
