Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has again spoken against the backdrop of the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Saturday’s governorship election in Ondo State.
Speaking to members of the Suppliers’ Association of Nigeria, Ikere chapter on Wednesday, Fayose said he is the only PDP’s governor in Southwest, adding that the situation did not bug him.
He said, “Today, I am the only one among the APC governors in the southwest . I am now like the nation of Israel surrounded by enemies, but I shall defeat and triumph over them.
“APC has never defeated me in any battle, either political or legal. Whether they like it or not, I will win in Ekiti no matter the animosity , because I have the people behind me.”
Talking on his succession plan, Fayose hinted at the possibility of dumping the PDP in the running up to Ekiti 2018 governorship poll.
His word, “I don’t know the platform I will use for the 2018 election yet and at the appropriate time, I will tell you”.
“We are still studying the situation . We have to play the game left, right and centre and whoever we are going to use and the platform, you will all be part of the process because party politics is about the people.”
