Ayo Fayose, former Ekiti State Governor, has stated that he has no regrets fighting ‘one hundred percent’ against the Peoples Democratic Party’s nominee, Atiku Abubakar, in the run-up to the February 25 presidential election.
Fayose, a PDP member, also stated that he was not concerned about getting booted out of the party for making the admission.
Fayose stated this on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ on Sunday night.
He stated that he backed President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress on principle.
Fayose said, “I worked against him (Atiku) 100 per cent. Nigeria is bigger than the PDP, APC and even Asiwaju (Tinubu) himself. Let us call a spade a spade. I am not a man that will hide my action. If PDP doesn’t need me again, they cannot say I cannot live.
“But I love the PDP even though the party has not been fair to me. I am a principled man. So, let me say to you, I never worked for PDP during the last election. I am not a liar and a pretender. I did not work for PDP.”
He said he will remain a member of the PDP “except the PDP says ‘Fayose, we don’t need you anymore.’ Then they have set me free of the yoke. But in all sincerity, it is a party that I believe in, subscribe to and want to stay forever. I will never join the APC”.
