2023 Presidency: I Supported Tinubu, Worked 100% Against Atiku – Fayose Reveals


Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has confirmed that he worked for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu during the 2023 presidential election.

Fayose, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) added that he worked totally against the party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Speaking during Channels TV Sunday Politics programme, the former Governor submitted that it was wrong of the PDP to have given its ticket to Atiku who is a northerner since Muhammadu Buhari who is also a northerner was just completing eight years in the seat of power.

He added that it was time for the South to take over, hence his decision to support Tinubu.

Fayose also stated that the PDP has not been fair to him.

In his words, “I never worked for PDP during the last election. I cannot work for two people at the same time,” he said.

“The reality is that I worked for Asiwaju (Tinubu). He is a respectable person from the South-West. It is the time of the South.”

Why I’m Angry With PDP

Speaking further, Fayose condemned the decision of the PDP to suspend him and his son, Oluwajomiloju, despite that he has “suffered tremendously for PDP”.

“The same PDP, because I said it was the turn of the South, removed my son, suspended my son, expelled my son, suspended me. For a man that has suffered tremendously for PDP?” he lamented.

He accused the PDP of playing games with Nigerians by giving its 2023 presidential ticket to Atiku.
