The current governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has ruled himself out of the campaign for a joint presidential ticket with the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff.
Fayose, who noted that he’s the most experienced state governor in Nigeria having served during the regime of President Olusegun Obasanjo, Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammadu Buhari, said he’s not interested in being the president or vice president in 2019 general election.
Besides, the fiery governor also ruled himself out of a senatorial ticket when his tenure expires, noting that the campaign would be an exercise in futility as he would not contest for another position in 2019.
The governor made it clear that he would never support any presidential move by Sheriff, adding that if the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman has such dream he should jettisoned it forthwith.
Fayose told those flying the kite of Sheriff/Fayose joint ticket that it will not fly.
“I will not support him now and I will never support him in 2019,” he insisted.
