The former Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has said he will never defect to the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) despite his beliefs about the current state of affairs within the Peoples Democratic Party.
He also stated that despite his support for the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, he would work for Atiku Abubakar towards the 2023 Presidential elections.
He made this known in a meeting with key members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ado Ekiti on Monday.
Fayose said “A lot has been said, but like I have said many times, let me state it here expressly again that I will never join APC for whatever reason,”
“In all the issues we are having as a party, no one has said that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is not our presidential candidate. No one has said too that Dr Ifeanyi Okowa is not our party’s vice presidential candidate.
“Also, we have Senatorial, House of Representatives and House of Assembly candidates here. Among them is my biological son, Joju, and others who are my political sons and daughters. My interest is that all these candidates should win elections.”
He further said, “I am appealing to those who are angry to stop being angry. Those who are fighting should stop fighting. Let us face the 2023 elections together and win first. After that, we can resume the fight.”
