Fayose may leave the PDP soon


The outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has threatened to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, coming after the conduct of PDP national convention on Saturday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The governor gave this hint to the Punch on Monday, stating that he would renounce his “membership of the PDP anytime from now.”

He added, “After consultations, I will speak clearly to Nigerians.”


Although it is not yet known the reason for this hint, the governor seems to be very angered at the outcome of the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) primary elections.

The former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, was declared the winner of the party’s presidential primary, defeating the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, and Senate President Bukola Saraki, to a second and third positions.
