2023 elections: No regret working against Atiku – Fayose

Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, says he has no regrets working ‘one hundred per cent’ against the presidential ambition of the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the build-up to the February 25 presidential poll.

Fayose, who is a member of the PDP, also said he was not afraid of being kicked out of the party, for making the disclosure.

He said his supported President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress based on principle.

He made the revelation when he featured on ‘Politics Today’ on Channels Television on Sunday night, monitored by NEWS FLASH.

Fayose said, “I worked against him (Atiku) 100 per cent. Nigeria is bigger than the PDP, APC and even Asiwaju (Tinubu) himself. Let us call a spade a spade. I am not a man that will hide my action. If PDP doesn’t need me again, they cannot say I cannot live.

“But I love the PDP even though the party has not been fair to me. I am a principled man. So, let me say to you, I never worked for PDP during the last election. I am not a liar and a pretender. I did not work for PDP.”

He said he remained a member of the PDP “except the PDP says ‘Fayose, we don’t you anymore.’ Then they have set me free of the yoke. But in all sincerity, it is a party that I believe in, subscribe to and want to stay forever. I will never join the APC.”
