The outgoing governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has indicated an intention of dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Fayose revealed in a statement he issued on Monday that he has no regret supporting Aminu Tambuwal in the race for the party’s presidential ticket.

Former Vice- President Atiku Abubakar overwhelmingly defeated Tambuwal in the primary held in Port Harcourt Saturday through Sunday.

But Fayose who lost in the bid to have a successor from in the PDP  said he had no apology teaming up with Nyesom Wike, his Rivers state counterpart, to support Tambuwal.

Wike was one of the major backers of Tambuwal in the race.


“We have no regret aligning with Governor Wike to support Governor Tambuwal for the presidential ticket and no apologies either,” Fayose said.

“We kept the party alive and strong when most men became ladies. We never compromised. If any group feels it can do it alone, we will see how far they can go.

“I may renounce my membership of the party if the need arises. In the main time, myself and others will continue with our consultations while watching the turn of event.

“We cannot but appreciate leaders that have intervened so far, but this release became necessary to avoid fresh crisis or misrepresentation.”
