Governor Fayose May Dump PDP

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, said he may seek another political platform to prosecute his succession battle in the 2018 governorship poll.

The governor said this on Wednesday at a meeting with the members of the Suppliers’ Association of Nigeria, Ikere Ekiti chapter.

He also argued that the victory of Rotimi Akeredolu, the candidate of the APC in Ondo State, did not in any way threaten his position in Ekiti. Fayose said:

“I don’t know the platform I will use for the 2018 election yet and at the appropriate time, I will tell you. We are still studying the situation. We have to play the game left, right and centre and whoever we are going to use and the platform, you will all be part of the process because party politics is about the people.

“You all saw how people sold their votes in Ondo State, I am confident that that will not happen in Ekiti. I am close to the people; you are the source of my strength. Even if it requires just 48 hours to any election, if I tell you where to go, you will surely follow me there.”

At a separate meeting with the junior members of staff in the state civil service, Fayose boasted that he would repeat the victory he got in all the 16 Local Government Areas when he defeated former governor Kayode Fayemi in 2014.

“The APC will be fooling itself if it thinks it will conquer Ekiti like it did in Ondo. Ekiti is a peculiar place and I am the man on the ground here. I want to assure my supporters and Nigerians that the APC won’t win a local government here in 2018, even if President Muhammadu Buhari moves down all the money in the Federal Government’s Treasury Single Account.

“Governor Olusegun Mimiko and Eyitayo Jegede must have lost in Ondo State, but that does not mean the people had voted rightly. In 2015, people clamoured for change and what have we got now? Nigerians are becoming poorer than ever.

“Today, I am the only one among the APC governors in the South-West. I am now like the nation of Israel surrounded by enemies, but I shall defeat and triumph over them."


  1. I just cant stop admirer Fayose,their is element of truth of what he is saying..

  8. It seems His Excellency Gov. Fayose forgot loyalty is the key in party politics, one just have to be 100% loyal to your party, anything short of that is regarded as anti-party, talking of likelihood to defect to another party to prosecute his succession battle in the 2018 governorship poll while currently (2016) seating on the platform of PDP.

  9. Thugnor oshokomole is not welcome in APC
