Ayo Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, said he doesn’t regret working ‘one hundred percent’ against Atiku Abubakar’s bid for the presidency in the run-up to the February 25 presidential election.
Fayose, a PDP member, added that he was not concerned about being expelled from the organisation as a result of his statement.
He claimed that his support for All Progressives Congress President Bola Tinubu was motivated by principles.
He revealed it on Sunday night’s episode of “Politics Today” on Channels Television.
“I worked entirely against him (Atiku),” Fayose declared. The PDP, APC, and even Asiwaju (Tinubu) are not as huge as Nigeria. Calling a spade a spade will help. I’m not a man who will conceal his behaviour. PDP cannot claim that I cannot survive if they don’t require me once more.
“But even if the PDP has not treated me fairly, I still love the party. I’m a man of principles. So let me be clear: I did not work for the PDP during the previous election. I am not a pretender or a liar. I wasn’t employed by PDP.
He claimed that despite the PDP saying, “Fayose, we don’t need you anymore,” he was still a member of that party. After that, they released me from the yoke. In all seriousness though, I want to continue with this party because I believe in it and adhere to it. Never will I join the APC.
