Former gover of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has revealed that he worked against his party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the February 25, 2023 election.
Fayose said he has no regrets working 100% against Atiku, adding that his afraid of being kicked out of the party, for making the disclosure.
The former governor revealed this while speaking in an on Channels Television’s programme, Sunday Politics.
His words: “I worked against him (Atiku) 100 per cent. Nigeria is bigger than the PDP, APC and even Asiwaju (Tinubu) himself. Let us call a spade a spade. I am not a man that will hide my action. If PDP doesn’t need me again, they cannot say I cannot live.
“But I love the PDP even though the party has not been fair to me. I am a principled man. So, let me say to you, I never worked for PDP during the last election. I am not a liar and a pretender. I did not work for PDP.”
He said he remained a member of the PDP “except the PDP says ‘Fayose, we don’t you anymore.’ Then they have set me free of the yoke. But in all sincerity, it is a party that I believe in, subscribe to and want to stay forever. I will never join the APC.”
“The same PDP, because I said it was the turn of the South, removed my son, suspended my son, expelled my son, suspended me. For a man that has suffered tremendously for PDP?
He added that “If PDP take action against me, I will take them to court. If anybody suppresses my voice, I will say things more than this.”
