Out-going governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele has said he has shelved his presidential ambition because the All Progressives Congress(APC) rigged the state’s gubernatorial election.
Fayose, said he was more preoccupied with reclaiming the stolen mandate of his deputy, Prof Kolapo Eleka and has submitted a petition at the tribunal.
Speaking on behalf of the governor,
Idowu Adelusi, his Chief Press Secretary, told The Cable that:
“Governor Ayodele Fayose has decided to bury his ambition because of the last Ekiti governorship election that was rigged by the APC and we have already filed a petition at the tribunal.
“So presently, the governor is more concerned in getting back the mandate of his deputy, Professor Eleka, than his presidential bid.
“That’s the preoccupation for now, so for that reason, he has decided to put his ambition aside, and face the petition in the tribunal and make sure the PDP gets its mandate back.”
