2019 Presidency: Our Focus Is To Chase Buhari Away, Says Fayose
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is focused on ensuring President Muhammadu Buhari do not get re-elected in the 2019 presidential poll.
Fayose, sated this on Tuesday, while receiving a former Vice President and Presidential hopeful, Atiku Abubakar, at the new Governor’s office in Ado-Ekiti, the State capital.
The former Vice President was in the state to meet with all PDP delegates for the Presidential primaries on his ambition to get the opposition party’s presidential ticket.
Fayose who urged unity among the PDP as a main prerequisite to winning in 2019, said: “I want to assure that on behalf of Ekiti that this journey will not come to sorrow for you.
“Our prayers is that this will not be an effort in futility. For Ekiti, we will speak in one voice, we believe that the only solution is PDP now, and that we must win.
“Today, we are being oppressed. We need power more than personal interest. We have to operate a PDP that can win election.
“This journey will bring joy peace to your hearts. If we must win, we must go to the poll united, we should not discriminate against anyone by saying someone has just come.
“Our focus is to chase Buhari away. And we must work assiduously towards that. And I believe he will leave,” Governor Fayose said.
