I’ll appoint minister of stomach infrastructure if elected president – Fayose The Informant247

2023 presidential election was free and fair — PDP chieftain, Ayodele Fayose

The former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has said that the February 25, 2023 presidential election was free and fair.

The former Governor made this revelation in a statement released on Friday, March 3, 2023.

He added that the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did not come victorious in the election because its members were divided.

He said he still remains a member of the party who decided to step aside to “speak truth to power”.

“I am still a bonafide member of the PDP.  I only said I stepped aside because I need to speak the truth to power without the fear of my view being tainted by party colouration,” the statement reads.

“Resigning from a political party has a procedure and the same will be followed if I strongly find the need to leave the party.

“It is important that we have somebody that can say the truth without wearing any party toga.

“I am a member of the PDP, a member of the PDP NEC, a member of the party caucus, member of the board of trustees based on my position as a former chairman of the PDP governors’ forum. It’s a lifetime membership. But Nigeria is bigger than any party.

“I am not a member of the APC and will never be a member of the party. I have never hidden my respect for Tinubu.

“Notwithstanding, I believe that the 2023 presidential election is free and fair and I am entitled to my views.

“I am not interested in contesting for any political position again in my life. What am I going to contest for at 62?

“Even if I want to contest not under APC. I have said it repeatedly that I can never join APC and I am still saying it now.

“But I need to emphasise that Nigeria needs somebody who will say the truth at this critical period in our history.

“Again, may I conclude here that Peter Obi is the man of the season. Asiwaju won the election, but PDP was too fractured to win an election at the federal level.

“However, at the state level elections are local, please continue to vote and support the PDP, especially in the governorship and houses of assembly elections.”

The Informant247 earlier reported that the main opposition party has rejected the election and challenged it in court.
