Governor Ayo Fayose, yesterday in open defiance of the Peoples Democratic Party’s stance that the Presidency had been zoned to the North, launched his own bid for the Presidential ticket.

According to him, his decision to flaunt the party’s position was something that had been done by others before.

He said, “Going down memory lane; in 1999 and 2003, despite that our party zoned the presidency to the South, the likes of Alhaji Abubakar Rimi of blessed memory and Chief Banabas Gemade contested the ticket.

“Also in 2007, some party members from the South did not only declare their intention to contest, they also showed interest and obtained nomination forms. Those from the South were Chief Victor Attah, Dr. Peter Odili, Dr. Sam Egwu, Dr. Donald Duke, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani and Owelle Rochas Okorocha among others.”

Fayose said he believed he was already chosen by God to become the next president of Nigeria and promised to put the nation on a sound footing.

He said, “Our economy will be revived and returned to the path of progress that it was before we had the misfortune of having clueless people in power.”

“You are guaranteed government that will not relate on the basis of ethnicity, religion, political affiliation and percentage of votes.

“It will be on equity and justice as citizens of one nation, one people, and one destiny”

Come 2019, will you vote for Ayo Fayose to become your next President?
