The Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi established that the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has not been endorsed to run for President in 2019.
On the platform of the party, Makarfi noted that no individual has been recently ratified or voted to run for both Presidential and Governorship offices in the coming elections.
Fayose had declared his intention to run for President in 2019. He showcased interest with flying posters at the PDP’s non-elective convention that held recently.
Makarfi however explained that the last convention was a non-elective one which no one has been endorsed.
“There were many people at the convention who indicated their political interests at the convention. It was not only Fayose. There were two other former governors who had posters about their bids.”
The convention was not elective and has nothing to do with the endorsement of anybody.”
“There were also posters of those eyeing governorship and
other positions. Would you say they were also endorsed? A convention is like a merrymaking ground where supporters
come in to show their support”, Makarfi noted.
