Following reports that Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state may be chosen as running mate for an Atiku Presidency in 2019, the governor has come out to debunk such reports.

A statement issued by Fayose’s spokesman, Lere Olayinka has categorically made it clear that such reports were wrong.

Lere Olayinka said, “I saw the report on Saharareporters like every other person; that will be one of the many mysteries of Sahareporters. As I’m talking to you, there is nothing like that…Fayose will officially declare his intention to run for the presidency latest by October. This issue of Fayose vying for presidency with Atiku is not correct.”

The Ekiti state governor who is presently the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, last month launched a Facebook page named ‘Fayose for President in 2019’
