Ayodele Fayose, the former Governor of Ekiti State, has announced that he is resigning from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and retiring from partisan politics. His decision comes shortly after the PDP’s loss in the presidential election to the All Progressives Congress (APC). Fayose made the announcement while appearing on a political program on Arise TV.
During the program, Fayose also revealed that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate, declined an offer to serve for only one term in exchange for the support of the G5 governors. Unfortunately, Atiku lost the G5 governors’ states to the APC’s Bola Tinubu, who won three states, and the Labour Party’s Obi, who won two states.
Fayose announced his resignation from the PDP during the program, stating, “I am no longer affiliated with the PDP as of today.”
