SAN FRANCISCO, August 12, (THEWILL) – Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has formally unveiled his ambition to run for the 2019 presidential election, assuring Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, members that he will receive them at the Aso Villa come 2019.
He asserted that the All Progressives Congress, APC, was only given an opportunity to rule for one term, adding that the party had misused its chance.
Fayose, who is the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, spoke on Saturday at the party’s Non-Elective National Convention, which was held at the Eagles Square, Abuja.
He arrived the arena spotting his 2019 presidential campaign shirt and cap with his entourage carrying his 2019 presidential campaign posters.
The Ekiti governor was surrounded by other governors elected on the platform of the party, even as the crowd gave him a roaring welcome.
“When you come to the Villa in 2019, I will receive you warmly, ” he told the cheering party members.
Fayose continued, “Nigerians have entered one chance in this government. But we can assure you that the APC has entered one term and they have to go.
“The PDP is now a religion, a belief that we are going back to our villa. God will be with us. Those people there, at Aso Rock, they don’t know what they are doing.
“Out of that one chance, we will give you plenty chances. We make mistakes but our ability to correct them if what is important. It is time to arise and shine.
“Shake the persons next to you and tell him or her congratulations for 2019. I don’t know about you but as for me, I am in Aso Rock already.
“I want to congratulate our great party and to assure Nigerians that we are going to deliver them from all they are passing through.”
