A former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has debunked reports of him resigning from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He stated this on Channels Television’s Hard Copy, a prerecorded show that airs on Friday nights.
“The moment I am not in the PDP, I would never join another political,” he said. “And I would never be a member of the APC – not whether they are good or bad.”
Fayose stated that the PDP needs to unite members and work to restore the party, which came second in this year’s presidential election.
The former governor reiterated the need for the southern part of Nigeria to produce the president, saying it could have been unfair for the northern region to have done so.
Meanwhile, he warned the main opposition party against expelling Nyesom Wike, a former governor of Rivers State.
Recall that Wike engaged in anti-party activities by working against the party in the 2023 presidential election and has since been appointed as a Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) by President Bola Tinubu.
“Some people say fight Wike, expel Wike, sack Wike. I think they do that at their own peril. You see, the first thing in your family even when you have extreme situations or indifferences, is not to drive away your wife or husband. Wike is a force in the PDP and beyond PDP, a force you cannot ignore,” he said.
“Ignore Wike, sack Wike, or fight Wike at your own peril. He is a man of capacity,” he added.
