ABUJA—Winner of last Saturday’s Ekiti State governorship election, Chief Ayodele Fayose, said yesterday that he owes his victory to President Goodluck Jonathan, who insisted that primaries be held for all aspirants on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Fayose, who pleaded with PDP chieftains to resolve their differences and close ranks in the South West, said that if PDP resolves all its differences, it is going to be a tsunami as the party will win the entire South-West, adding that All Progressives Congress, APC, does not have the manpower as “they rely on propaganda.”
He spoke, yesterday, in Abuja when he visited the national secretariat of PDP Reloaded, a forum which is at the forefront of President Jonathan’s re election bid.
Fayose said that as a way of paying back, he would spear head the campaign for President Jonathan’s re election in the South-West geo political zone, just as he said that he would make sure he puts in everything humanly possible to ensure that the President comes back in 2015, even as he warned the All Progressives Congress, APC, that change was imminent in the zone.
National Coordinator of PDP Reloaded, Richard Lamai who described Fayose’s victory as a remarkable feat, said: “As an apostle of change, his victory has opened the gate into South-West.
“It shall be repeated in Osun, Oyo and Lagos states until we drive APC into the Atlantic Ocean.”
