As the race to the Presidential villa in 2023 gets more intense in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has withdrawn his membership of the party zoning committee over his presidential ambition.
Fayose in a letter dated 5th April 2022 addressed to Chairman PDP zoning committee, Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom thanked the committee members for their patriotism to the party.
The former Chairman PDP governors forum also commended the way the 37 members zoning committee handled and comported themselves in deliberations regarding this sensitive issue.
He expressed hope that the outcome will bring understanding, peace and stability to the party and the country at large.
The statement partly read, “having hinted during our last meeting at my intention to run for the office the President in the coming primary election and by God’s grace; the general election. it will not be morally right to continue to participate in the zoning debate being an aspirant myself.
”Therefore, my state has nominated the bearer of this letter Dr Gbenga Faseluko to replace me”.
