Former Ekiti Governor, Ayodele Fayose has announced his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party, barely 24 hours after the poor show of the party in the just concluded 2023 presidential election.

Mr Fayose, who also disclosed that he’ll quit partisan politics, announced his resignation while appearing as a guest on ARISE TV.

The former two-term governor of Ekiti state alleged the presidential candidate the PDP, Atiku Abubakar rejected the offer of one term in office to get the G5 Governors’ support.

Announcing his resignation, Fayose said: “From today, I stay off PDP.”

When asked if that was a resignation, he said, “Let me put it this way, in party politics. Because there are certain facts. I am 62.

“I say it here from today, I step aside because I must be talking like a leader in this country.

“I had issued on my Twitter handle even in the month of January or December, I warned the PDP about this problem. if not resolved will consume this party, I told them there is Danger ahead. Watch it.

“I was invited by His Excellency Atiku Abubakar to a hotel in Lagos. I told him four things, that there were four demands they made of you. One, you are seventy-six as of last year. The G-5 said, you are already a candidate, you can’t abort a child that has been given birth to.

“But let us go back and tell the Southerners that you will spend four years so that it would not look like it will be eight to eight years back to back for the North because Buhari is leaving and he is representing the North irrespective of the party.

“They told his excellency to make his official announcement, not that he should hand it over to any member of the G-5. That you are going to spend four years and at that time you will be 80 years, all the people surrounding him disagree, that they can’t say such, when he becomes President he will say it, who does that?

The former Ekiti state governor blamed the National Chairman of the party, Iyiorcha Ayu, for the failure of the party at the poll and urged the party to accept defeat, alleging that they are sponsoring protests against the outcome of the election.

“This Ayu was the one who led Atiku to Golgotha. They took him to Golgotha, brought knife. You see when a man cannot come out, at 80 what does he want to do after?.”

Speaking on the governorship election in Lagos State, he said, “The PDP candidate in Lagos to me, they are people doing theatre. Lagos business is a serious business. There are lots of challenges in Lagos. So I enjoin everybody in Lagos to return Sanwo-Olu.”
