Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose, has once again said he will become the President when Nigerians select a new leader for another four years in 2019.
He said this on Thursday in Ado Ekiti, the state capital while addressing hundreds of women at an event to commemorate the 2018 International Women’s Day.
“I want them to here in the Villa, I will be president of Nigeria Tomorrow, Fayose told his supporters at the gathering.
“Sometimes, it is difficult for people to believe but when it happens, I want you to know that I’ve said so before.”
Ahead of the forthcoming general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had in 2017 zoned its Presidency to the North and its national chairmanship to the South, a position being held by Prince Uche Secondus.
While it seems that Governor Fayose’s interest to run for Presidency might be against the party’s arrangement, he informed the PDP leaders in a letter last year that his ambition was without prejudice to the party’s position but in the overall interest of the party and the country.
