The Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has abandoned his desire to seek re-election in 2018. In its place, he has launched his presidential campaign on Facebook. Fayose had initially said he would approach the Supreme Court to determine his eligibility to run again for the office of governor of his state because of his inability to complete his first term in office. The governor, whose impeachment then had been declared null and void by the Supreme Court, had said there was need to finish his first four years in office. Fayose, who is the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum, was one of the two governors in the party who spoke vehemently against the continued stay in office of the former National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff.
Ironically, the governor was also among the few governors who brought the former governor of Borno State to the office of the national chairman of the former ruling party. The PDP had zoned the position of the party’s presidential candidate to the northern part of the country. It is, however, not clear if the party would go back on this, but analysts believed that Fayose could be positioning himself for the position of running mate for the party’s presidential candidate. The three organs of the party, which are the Expanded National Caucus, Board of Trustees and the National Executive Committee, met in Abuja in Monday. The meeting continues on Tuesday (today). The Facebook page was opened about twenty-two hours ago, with the message 'together we can make Nigeria work again' on the profile picture, which had the image of the governor.
“Hello Nigerians, behold your next President!!
Pro Masses. Accessible. Ekiti State Governor. Chairman, PDP Governors' Forum. Husband and Father. He's Peter (The Rock) Ayodele Fayose,” was the first message posted on the page, with the motto – ‘Strong, Reliable and Rugged’.
This development might be part of Fayose’s steps to snatch power from President Muhammadu Buhari, whom he never ceases to critique. “I have penchant for taking powers; that one in Buhari’s hand, I will take it. I’m going straight to that villa. I’m the next president,” Fayose had said in a recent interview.
“I want to be the next president of Nigeria. My own won’t be this change that has brought nothing, we are going to represent the people well and tell them the truth.
