A former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has revealed why he worked against the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 Presidential election.
In an interview with Channels on Sunday, Fayose, who is a PDP member disclosed that he worked against the PDP because the party has been unfair to him and that he supported President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress based on principle.
Fayose said, “I worked against him (Atiku) 100 per cent. Nigeria is bigger than the PDP, APC and even Asiwaju (Tinubu) himself. Let us call a spade a spade. I am not a man that will hide my action. If PDP doesn’t need me again, they cannot say I cannot live.
“But I love the PDP even though the party has not been fair to me. I am a principled man. So, let me say to you, I never worked for PDP during the last election. I am not a liar and a pretender. I did not work for PDP.”
He said he remained a member of the PDP “except the PDP says ‘Fayose, we don’t you anymore.’ Then they have set me free of the yoke. But in all sincerity, it is a party that I believe in, subscribe to and want to stay forever. I will never join the APC.”
