The governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has given an indication that he would quit the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP0 if the crisis rocking the party is not resolved by 2018.
The governor, who spoke at a meeting with the Suppliers Association of Nigeria, Ikere chapter, at Ikere-Ekiti, expressed concerns over the crisis which led to the failure of the PDP to win the Ondo State governorship election held Saturday.
“I don’t know the platform I will use for the 2018 election yet and at the appropriate time, I will tell you. We are still studying the situation. We have to play the game left, right and centre and whoever we are going to use and the platform, you will all be part of the process because party politics is about the people.
“You all saw how people sold their votes in Ondo state. I am confident that that will not happen in Ekiti. I am close to the people; you are the source of my strength. Even if it requires just 48 hours to any election, if I tell you where to go, you will surely follow me there.”
Fayose said that the emergence of Rotimi Akeredolu of All Progressives Congress (APC) as governor of Ondo State posed no threat to the PDP in Ekiti State. [myad]
