Nigeria Zoning Politics: PDP To Deny Governor Fayose Presidential Candidacy




Nigeria opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party has announced that it will not support Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose’s presidential ambition.


National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye told Punch that Fayose should respect the decisions taken by the party to zone presidency to the North.

“The highest organ of the party, which is the national convention, zoned the presidential ticket of the PDP to the North. That has not changed. The same national convention zoned the position of the national chairman to the South. The convention has yet to change any of these two.


“That (national convention) is the supreme organ of the party. Those decisions are binding on all members of the party. Nobody can alter these decisions.”

Wondering why Fayose would want to disobey the party despite his position as a leader,
“The governor is a member of the party and was at the convention where these decisions were taken. As a leader of the party, one expected the governor to respect the party and its decisions. If someone in such an office is breaking the decisions of the party, what do you expect from the rank and file.”


However, report has it that Fayose had sent letters to some leaders of the party to inform them about his decision to run for the Presidency on the platform of the PDP.
