The Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has threatens to renounce his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, very soon.

Fayose, in a statement sent to journalists in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, yesterday, said his decision was a fallout of the Presidential primary of the PDP, which was held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

According to Fayose: “we have no regret aligning with Governor Wike to support Governor Tambuwal for the presidential ticket and no apologies either”

“We kept the party alive and strong when most men became ladies. We never compromised. If any group feels it can do it alone, we will see how far they can go.

I may renounce my membership of the party if the need arises”

Fayose further stated that “In the main time, myself and others will continue with our consultations while watching the turn of event”

“We cannot but appreciate leaders that have intervened so far, but this release became necessary to avoid fresh crisis or misrepresentation”, he stated.
