At the PDP convention held in Abuja, Fayose flagged-off his campaign
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state stormed the Eagle Square, Abuja venue of the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) dressed in his presidential campaign shirt.
Fayose and his team also took time to parade at the venue to create better awareness and maybe, to show his seriousness ahead of 2019.
The team members were dressed in the governor’s 2019 presidential campaign shirt and cap and carried his campaign posters.
The Vanguard reports that the Fayose, who is also the chairman of PDP Governors Forum, officially unveiled his presidential ambition at the convention.
The report said the governor arrived the venue with cheers and roaring welcome from participants.
In June, 2017, Fayose declared his readiness to run for presidency and outwit Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
“I have penchant for taking powers; that one in Buhari’s hand. I will take it. I’m going straight to that villa. I’m the next president.
“I want to be the next president of Nigeria. My own won’t be this change that has brought nothing, we are going to represent the people well and tell them the truth,” Fayose had said.
It was reported earlier that days after Governor Ayodele Fayose reportedly declared his plans to contest the 2019 presidency, a former member of the House of Representatives, Bamidele Faparusi, has told him to go learn from his performing colleagues in other states.
Faparusi begged Fayose to ensure he learns from other governors the best way to boost his state’s revenue.
