The outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has threatened to leave the Peoples Democratic Party after the National Convention held on Saturday in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.
The governor said on Monday that he would renounce his “membership of the PDP anytime from now.”
He added, “After consultations, I will speak clearly to Nigerians.”
Reason for his planned exit from the party that earned him the governorship position he currently holds may not be unconnected with the outcome of the Saturday presidential primary of the PDP in Port Harcourt
A former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, was declared the winner of the party’s presidential primary, defeating the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, Senate President Bukola Saraki, and eight others.
Fayose was said to have favoured Tambuwal who would have made him his running mate if the plan had worked
