Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain and former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has admitted that he worked against his party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, during the 2023 presidential poll. 

He made this known when he featured as a guest on Channels Television’s programme ‘Sunday Politics’ on Sunday, July 9. 

Speaking during the chat he 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.” 

He went on to say he pitched his tent with the eventual winner and candidate of the All Progressives Party (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu based on his conviction for justice, equity and fairness, insisting it was the turn of the South to produce the president.  

The former governor added that he cannot support a party that suspended him and his son, as he had “suffered tremendously” for the PDP.

“The reality is that I worked for Asiwaju. He is a respectable person from the southwest. It is the time of the South.

“The same PDP, because I said it was the turn of the South, removed my son, suspended my son, expelled my son, suspended me. For a man that has suffered tremendously for PDP?” he further said.

Fayose, who showed no remorse for his decision to move against his party also said he was prepared for whatever actions his party may take against him over the matter. 


He also stated that he is not scared or bothered about being expelled by the major opposition party if it feels he is no longer needed.  

He added: “I am not a man that will hide my action. If PDP doesn’t need me again, they cannot say I cannot live.”
