Fayose Threatens To Dump PDP As Atiku Emerges As Party’s Presidential Candidate

Ekiti Governor Ayodele Fayose has threatened to dump the PDP party following the emergence of ex VP Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the party..

Fayose, the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, alongside Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, supported Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal who came a distant second.

Fayose in a statement said:

“We have no regret aligning with Governor Wike to support Governor Tambuwal for the presidential ticket and 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.

“I may renounce my membership of the party if the need arises.

“In the mean 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.”

Fayose earlier declared interest in contesting for President but withdrew .

Fayose joined the PDP before the 2003 governorship poll which he won. He has been in and out of the party at various times.

    Hinting about his next move, he is carefully watching who will emerge the next president between lifeless snake and crocodile, Nigeria is their playing ground…when you are in a ruling party your name will not be drag out , not that there will be any punishment but to deceive the masses, because they are all the same with no progressive agenda.

    Rather unfortunate. Our politicians should stop defecting from one party to the other. It does not look healthy for our democracy. The younger ones will honestly believe that it is a beautiful idea. Join a political party base on your beliefs and ideology not for selfish reasons. Stay in a party and make yourself a corner stone. A Rolling Stone gathers no moss. Having stay in the nest when the birds flew away, you should not quit now that the nest is enlarging.

    I think somebody is stylishly planning to avoid the inevitable prosecution by joining the rulling party under pretence of rancour within his party. Knowing when you join the rulling party, you are immuned from EFCC prosecution. SMART!

    Fayose and Wike with every other aggrieved politician over nomination of Atiku, should please calm down. The aim is for you people to Unanimously take government from this present administration, after you will settle your grievances,please.

    Atiku for President indeed. Feeling sorry for my country. Either way, I have nothing to lose. It’s the youth and upcoming generations whose future is being sabotaged that bothers me. There’s no remorse or repercussions for those who destroyed our country, now using our stolen wealth to bribe the hungry and frustrated people to win elections at all costs. I salute Nigeria o, una well done.

    I am highly disappointed in Fayose and Wike, your selfish ambitions must not rise above the interest of Nigerians. What gave you the conviction that Tambuwal can match Buhari. NAWAWO FOR YOU.

    I am sorry for Nigerians. We are in a country where the citizens don’t know the causes of hardship in their country. If a presidential candidate is giving out $5000 to each delegate to win primary election according to what we are reading, then what will happen if he wins and become the president? Well, let Nigerians answer my question. God bless Nigerian.

    I think Nigeria should rethink their decision over who becomes president of this country before it will be too late, most especially, the youth, because it clearly that, it is the same people who have been paraded themselves since democracy have come and stay, I wish they would allow the youth to share their ideology and made progress for the country
