Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, said he has no interest in the presidential ambition of All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Bola Tinubu, in 2023.

Fayose stated this on a PUNCH live interview on Wednesday, February 24.

He expressed confidence that his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), would produce Nigeria’s president in the 2023 general elections.

He said “Bola Tinubu is a leader in the West. It is a statement of fact” but noted that he has not met or spoken with the former Lagos State governor in years.

“To the best of my knowledge, I am not a member of APC. I have no influence on how he will become if he wants to become. I have no interest; the only interest I have is that a PDP president must be put in place.”

“If this country exists for the peace and enjoyment of all us, we will not be talking about it is APC, it is PDP…A PDP man cannot attend a function with an APC man. An APC man cannot greet a PDP man, we can’t continue like that, it shows level of hypocrisy,” he added.

The ex-governor of Ekiti also said he has not abandoned his ambition to be Nigeria’s president.

“The office of the president is a noble one and I will love to be the president of Nigeria if the opportunity permits,” Fayose stated.
