The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose’s declaration to run for Presidency on the platform of the party in 2019.
Fayose had yesterday in Abuja officially declared his intention to run for Presidency in 2019.
However, the National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, stressed that it is expected of all party members to comply with the party’s National Convention which zoned the Presidency to the North.
Speaking with jounalists Adeyeye said, “A decision was taken at the National Convention of the party, which is the supreme organ of the party. Any decision taken cannot be changed or queried.
“It is binding on every party member. No matter your position in the party, it is expected of you to comply with the decision of the National Convention and that is our position.”
On the possibility that Fayose was scheming to position himself for Vice Presidential candidate in 2019, Adeyeye said, “That question should be directed to him, he is in the best position to react to that.”
