I’m not contesting for the Presidential position – Fayose

The Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has ruled himself out of the campaign for a joint presidential ticket with the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff, saying he is not interested in being the president or vice-president of the country.

Besides, the fiery governor also ruled himself out of a senatorial ticket when his tenure expires, noting that the campaign would be an exercise in futility as he would not contest for another position in 2019.

He said he is the most senior and most experienced governor in the country having served during the tenure of President Olusegun Obasanjo, Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammadu Buhari.

The governor made it clear that he would never support any presidential move by Sheriff, adding that if the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman has such dream he should jettisoned it forthwith.

Fayose told those flying the kite of Sheriff/Fayose joint ticket that it will not fly. “I will not support him now and I will never support him in 2019,” he insisted. Again, Fayose took a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari, saying he (Buhari) has no capacity to rule the country.

Fayose was also angry at those already campaigning for a second term for the president when he is barely one year into his first tenure to desist from the move as the country is on edge of collapse both political and economically under the president.
