Ayodele Fayose

Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has asked the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Saturday, February 25 Presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, to accept defeat at the election that had just been concluded.

Fayose also announced his resignation from the party during an interview on ARISE TV, accusing Atiku and the PDP of sponsoring protests against the outcome of the election.

Fayose said: “from today, I stay off PDP. Let me put it this way, in party politics. Because there are certain facts. I am 62. I say it here from today; I step aside because I must be talking like a leader in this country.

He added, “This Ayu was the one who led Atiku to the gutters. They took him to the gutters. You see when a man cannot come out. At 80 what does he want to do after?”

“I had issued on my Twitter handle even in the month of January or December, I warned the PDP about this problem. if not resolved (it) will consume this party. I told them there is danger ahead. Watch it.

“I was invited by His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar, to a hotel in Lagos. I told him four things; that there were four demands they made of you. One, you are 76 as of last year. The G-5 said, you are already a candidate, you can’t abort a child that has been given birth to.

“But let us go back and tell the Southerners that you will spend four years so that it would not look like it will be eight years back to back for the North because Buhari is leaving and he is representing the North irrespective of the party.

“They told his Excellency to make his official announcement, not that he should hand it over to any member of the G-5; that you are going to spend four years and at that time you will be 80 years. All the people surrounding him disagree that they can’t say such (and that) when he becomes President he will say it. Who does that?”
