Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti state, says the suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) asking a federal high court in Abuja to stop the All Progressives Congress (APC) convention is laughable and disappointing.

 

According to Fayemi, the PDP is afraid of competition and is looking for a back door into government.

 

Speaking on Friday in an interview on Arise TV, Fayemi said: “Frankly, it’s immensely laughable and quite disappointing because all this shows to Nigerians is that the PDP is afraid of an open competition in an election that Nigerians are the decision makers.

 

“They should wait for a real election; they should not look for a back door to government… that’s what this is about and it’s not going to go anywhere because we have followed due process; we have followed the electoral act, we are doing everything in accordance with the law.”

 

When asked if he would contest for president in 2023, the Ekiti governor said: “I have a job that I’m doing today. I’m the governor of Ekiti state and my primary focus is to finish that job well. That is not to suggest by any stretch of imagination that I do not have what it takes to be president of Nigeria and I would cross that bridge at an appropriate time.”
