The outgoing governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has reportedly threatened to leave the opposition party PDP after the National Convention held on Saturday in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State. The highly controversial and outspoken Ekiti State governor has hinted that he would renounce his “membership of the PDP anytime from now.”
Over the past few weeks, reports had that Fayose and the River State governor, Nyesom Wike, backed the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, who came second in the party’s presidential primaries.
In a statement on Monday, Fayose said:
“We have no regret aligning with Governor Wike to support Governor
Tambuwal for the presidential ticket and no apologies either.
“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 meantime, I and others will continue with our consultations while watching the turn of events.
“We cannot but appreciate leaders that have intervened so far, but this release became necessary to avoid fresh crisis or misrepresentation.”

Because Fayose’s plan to be VP didn’t work and their plan failed, he’s now making noise.

Where will he go to? APC is already in control in Ekiti state. He has nothing to offer them now. He has become politically useless.

He can go to wherever he wants even hell if he so desired. Cry baby who couldn’t deliver his state 4 gubernatorial victory. His being wanted by EFCC & thought his candidate would win the primary paving the way to be VP which would make his arrest impossible that’s why his pissed.

Let’s set the record straight, Fayose is the literal Noisemaker. My own is constructive noise.
Don’t be unfortunate, please dear.

PDP should not fall for Fayose’s blackmail. They shouldn’t fall for it.
