I’m still in the race for 2019 Presidency – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose on Friday said that he has not withdrawn from the 2019 Presidential race.

Fayose said he decided to soft-pedal on his campaign because of the pending July 14, 2018 governorship election in the state adding that the campaign would kick off immediately after the state election.

Fayose boasted to defeat former governor Kayode Fayemi if he is picked as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress(APC).

He also allayed the fears of some PDP aggrieved aspirants calling on the Chief  Uche Secondus-led National Working Committee to stop the governor from interfering with  the primary, adding that the state has no role to play in the shadow election, saying it remains the prerogative of the NWC of the party.

Fayose stated this yesterday during an interactive session with teachers in public primary and secondary schools at the government house in Ado Ekiti.

Notable aspirants including a former Minister of State for Works, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, Senator Biodun Olujimi , Owoseeni Ajayi and Amb Dare Bejide, had  at a joint press conference on Monday advised Secondus to checkmate Fayose and ensure that credible primary is conducted in Ekiti.

Fayose said : “I am still in the presidential race I am only waiting for the time Ekiti governorship election will hold so I can have the time.

Though, I am making contacts, I am reaching out to the people that matter  across the country.

“I have no role to play, only the NWC will present the delegate lists for them to elect the candidate, so I won’t interfere despite my support for Prof Kolapo Olusola.

“I have no regret supporting Olusola , if it were those people I had supported, they won’t be abusing me.  But they remain our brothers and sister and we are going to put our house in order at the right time so that we can be on the same page”, Fayose added.

Addressing the teachers, Fayose appealed to them to support Olusola the way they did to him in June 21, 2014 governorship election , where he defeated Dr Kayode Fayemi.

He promised not to owe the teachers a dime at the expiration of his tenure on October 15, 2018, saying 1000 teachers will begin to benefit certain financial benefits from him commencing from the end of this month to give them a sense of belonging in his government..

“Don’t vote for those that will come here and sack you. When they sacked your colleagues in Kaduna State, annot good for Ekiti teachers.

“Prof Olusola is a man of integrity, very hardworking and dependable , he won’t betray you. He will protect your interests and I want you to support him”.

Fayose added that all the outstanding salaries , allowances , bonuses and pensions shall be paid before he  finally bows out as a governor.
