The Governor of Ekiti state, who is also the Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party Governors in Nigeria, Ayodele Fayose has spoken as regards his six different party men in the southwest, who are vying for the same position of the party’s national chairmanship.
As the 2015 PDP Lagos state Gubernatorial candidate, Jimi Agbaje today joined the chairmanship race, Fayose reiterated on his opinion about the keenly eyed position.
Agbaje said he decided to visit Fayose because it will be inappropriate for the governor who is the only PDP governor from the South West to “get to know about my aspiration in the media, hence, my decision to come here and tell you formally.”
On the Ekiti state Governor’s part, Fayose said chairmanship aspirants from the zone must come together and present a single candidate for the position. “It won’t be in the collective interest of the Southwest zone to present six aspirants at the convention as we presently have.”
Also in the same race include: Chief Raymond Dokpesi, the founder of African Independent Television (AIT), who recently got the endorsement of Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, who had just decamped to his former PDP after leaving his owned formed Accord Party in spite of past misdeeds to him in PDP; Chief Bode George, who is as well fully supported by Chief Babatope Fabiyi, the former Minister of Transportation; the former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel; and a former Minister of Education , Prof. Tunde Adeniran.
