2019: PDP Will Not Issue Nomination Form To Fayose – Nwodo
A member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo, has said Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, cannot contest in the party’s primary poll for the 2019 presidential election.
Nwodo stated this yesterday, in Abuja, shortly after Fayose’s formal declaration of intent to contest for the party’s ticket in 2019.
The party chieftain stressed that PDP’s ideology forbade Fayose and other members from the South from contesting in the presidential race in 2019.
His words: “Fayose cannot run and I will tell you my reason. Now, we did not only zone the presidency to the North, we have re-emphasised at every opportunity we had that the zoning will take place.
“So, the party will not collect Expression of Interest money from anybody else who is not from the North and will not issue him a nomination form to contest. No, we will not do that.’’
