PDP Cautions Fayose on Presidential Ambition

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose to take it low in pursuit of his presidential ambition.
The party told him not to waste his resources campaigning for the coveted seat, saying the party had already zoned the 2019 election presidential candidate to the the North.
Fayose had indicated interest to contest the 2019 presidential election under the party and said he would formally unveil his plans on Thursday in Abuja.
But the paty informed Fayose that all its members were aware of the zoning formula it adopted for both its presidential ticket and the position of the national chairman.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, therefore, called on Fayose to respect the decisions taken by the party on zoning.
He wondered why Fayose would want to disobey the party despite his position as a leader, who he said, was also present at the national convention where the decisions were taken.
Adeyeye said, “The highest organ of the party, which is the national convention, zoned the presidential ticket of the PDP to the North. That has not changed. The same national convention zoned the position of the national chairman to the South. The convention has yet to change any of these two.
“That (national convention) is the supreme organ of the party. Those decisions are binding on all members of the party. Nobody can alter these decisions.
“The Governor is a member of the party and was at the convention where these decisions were taken. As a leader of the party, one expected the governor to respect the party and its decisions. If someone in such an office is breaking the decisions of the party, what do you expect from the rank and file.”
