Ayo Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, said he doesn’t regret working ‘one hundred percent’ against Atiku Abubakar’s bid for the presidency in the run-up to the February 25 presidential election.
Fayose, a PDP member, added that he was not concerned about being expelled from the organisation as a result of his statement.
He claimed that his support for All Progressives Congress President Bola Tinubu was motivated by principles.
He made the revelation when he featured on ‘Politics Today’ on Channels Television on Sunday night.
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 remained a member of the PDP “except the PDP says ‘Fayose, we don’t 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.”
