Fayose Neglects PDP, Calls For Southern Presidency

Fayose Neglects PDP, Calls For Southern Presidency

By Caleb Ishaya

Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose has renewed his call for a southern presidency despite the emergence of a northern presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

It would be recalled that the PDP presidential flag bearer and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, had picked the Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate, a decision that did not go down well with some party members, especially the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, who came second in the primary.

In a tweet yesterday, Fayose stated that it must be a southern presidency or nothing.

According to him, “The current president of Nigeria is a two-term northern presidency, thus implying that the next president must come from the southern part of the country.

“The PDP constitution provides for rotational presidency. Section 3(c) provides that the party shall pursue its aims and objectives by adhering to the policy of the rotation and zoning of party and public elective offices in pursuance of the principle of equity, justice and fairness”.

He also hinted that Nigerians should expect details of what would happen soon.
