Former Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has stated that he won’t join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Fayose said this on Tuesday, March 21, days after the general election was concluded. The former Governor who opposed his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar from northern Nigeria, said during an interview on Channels Television;
“Many people in Nigeria have been confronted with what they have said at different times and they either recant or say something new. I stand here to tell you that I will never be a member of the APC. I am not in politics for what it is anymore. I have been given a fair opportunity to lead Ekiti two times and defeated two incumbents.”
Fayose also said that his support for president-elect Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was based on the principles of equity which meant southern Nigeria should take over power at the federal level.
“I have no apology for my action now and in the future. I have not hidden my respect for Bola Asiwaju.”
