Fayose: I’m running for president  as northerners show no interest

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, yesterday, declared ‎his intention to contest the office of president in the 2019 general elections on the platform of the People Democratic Party (PDP).
Fayose, who is the Chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum (PDPGF), said he formally declared for the office because he had the strength, knowledge and ‎mental capacity to hit the ground running if given the mandate.
His campaign vehicles sighted by our correspondent, were adorned with ‎his pictures, PDP colours, logo and umbrella with inscription, “Governor Ayo Fayose for President, 2019.” 
Making a public declaration at Chelsea Hotel, Abuja, the governor argued that despite the zoning of the party’s ticket to the North, he decided to contest from the South because northerners had not shown interest.
He added that party chieftains from the North do not need to be begged to fly the party’s flag.
“They said they zoned the ticket to the North, I challenge our brothers from the North for a contest in the field,” he said.
The governor argued that in 1999 and 2003, the likes of late Alhaji Abubakar Rimi and Chief Barnabas Gemade contested the ticket from the North, even though it was zoned to the South.
“Also in 2007, some party members from the South did not only declare their intention to contest, they also showed interest and obtained nomination forms. 
“Those from ‎the South were Chief Victor Attah, Dr. Peter Odili, Dr. Sam Egwu, Dr. Donald Duke, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani, Owelle Rochas Okorocha among others.
“‎Like they lied to win election, the APC government of President Buhari has been deceitful for over two years and an end must come to this deceptive government by 2019. 
“Twice, I defeated incumbents to become governor of Ekiti State and I am confident that with your support as my party leaders and supporters, I will defeat the incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari in a free and fair election,” he said.
