Fayose Withdraws Presidential Ambition

Published

on


Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, has announced his withdrawal from contesting for the office of the President in 2019. Fayose made this known on Saturday, while receiving two presidential aspirants; former governor Rabiu Kwankwaso and former minister, Taminu Turaki, who came to lobby him and delegates in the state.
He said he had to drop the ambition as a mark of sympathy and concern for his deputy, Prof Kolapo Olusola-Eleka, who lost in the last gubernatorial election in the state.
“I dropped the presidential ambition because of the stolen mandate freely given to my deputy. As a good leader, I cannot abandon my loyal deputy whose mandate was stolen by the APC to pursue another ambition. I am committed to the recovery of the mandate for now more than anything else,” he said.
NAN reports that before now, Fayose had not only opened campaign offices, but also came out with branded vehicles for campaign for the presidential slot.
The two visiting presidential aspirants assured PDP members in Ekiti that the party would regain power in 2019. They urged the Ekiti delegates to consider their candidature so as to make the dream become a reality.
