Fayose Vows To Take Over Power From Buhari, Says ‘I’m The Next President’
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said if given the necessary support by his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he would take over government from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Fayose, in a statement issued on Tuesday by his special assistant on public communications and new media, Mr Lere Olayinka, further revealed plans to formally declare his intention to run for presidency in the general elections on Thursday in Abuja.
His words: “It is with a deep sense of responsibility that I write to inform you of my intention to seek the ticket/mandate of our party to contest the 2019 presidential election.
“Considering your support and commitment towards our great party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), it becomes imperative to keep you informed and seek your support.
“This ambition, however, is without prejudice to our party’s position but in the overall interest of the party and our country.
“I urge that all hands should be on deck to ensure victory at the 2019 presidential election.
“Accept the assurances of my highest regards as a determined presidential hopeful.”
