Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, has said he would still like to be Nigeria’s president.
He said this in an interview with The Punch.
“The office of the president is a noble one and I will love to be the president of Nigeria if the opportunity permits,” Fayose stated.
The Peoples Democratic Party chieftain also said he is not concerned by the reported interest of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to run for president in 2023.
“I have never met former governor Ahmed Bola Tinubu in the last three years and I have never spoken with him on the phone once. So, I don’t how they are tying the relationship politically.
“To the best of my knowledge, I am not a member of APC. I have no influence on how he will become if he wants to become. I have no interest; the only interest I have is that a PDP president must be put in place.”
“If this country exists for the peace and enjoyment of all us, we will not be talking about it is APC, it is PDP…A PDP man cannot attend a function with an APC man. An APC man cannot greet a PDP man, we can’t continue like that, it shows level of hypocrisy,” he said.
