Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State insists he has not dropped his 2019 Presidential ambition even though the Peoples Democratic Party have zoned the ticket to the North.
Speaking during a meeting with teachers in Ado-Ekiti on Friday, Fayose noted that he soft-pedaled on his campaign due to the July 14, 2018 Ekiti governorship poll.
According to him, he will restart his campaign after the state election.
“I am still in the presidential race I am only waiting for the time Ekiti governorship election will hold so I can have the time. Though, I am making contacts, I am reaching out to the people that matter across the country,” Fayose said.
On the primary election in Ekiti, the governor noted that he has “no role to play, only the NWC will present the delegate lists for them to elect the candidate, so I won’t interfere despite my support for Prof Kolapo Olusola.
“I have no regret supporting Olusola , if it were those people I had supported, they won’t be abusing me. But they remain our brothers and sister and we are going to put our house in order at the right time so that we can be on the same page.”
