News filtered in yesterday that Ekiti State governor Ayodele Fayose is threatening to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Well, more revelations have been made in that regard and it appears to be true. Here’s the real reason the outgoing governor is threatening to leave the party.
The PDP presidential primaries held in Rivers State on Sunday, 7th October, 2018 and Sokoto Governor Aminu Tambuwal was Governo Ayodele Fayose’s favorite. But after a kenly contested primaries, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar picked the PDP ticket for the presidential race after scoring 1,532 votes to floor Tambuwal who got 693 votes.
That didn’t quite go well with Fayose, hence his threats.
“We have no regret aligning with Governor Wike to support Governor Tambuwal for the presidential ticket. We have no apologies either.
“We kept the party alive and strong when most men became ladies. We never compromised. If any group feels it can do it alone, we will see how far they can go
“In the main time, myself and others will continue with our consultations while watching the turn of events.
“We cannot but appreciate leaders that have intervened so far, but this release became necessary to avoid fresh crisis or misrepresentation,” he said.
Fayose is aggrieved that Aminu Tambuwal was not given the ticket. It is yet to be seen if he would go ahead with his threat to leave the party.
