The Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose on Friday said that he has not withdrawn from his Presidential race.
The governor said he decided to soft pedal on his campaign because of the pending July 14, 2018 governorship election in the state. According to him, the presidential campaign would kick off immediately after the state election.
Fayose said he would defeat former governor Kayode Fayemi if he is picked as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC. He spoke during during an interactive session with teachers in public primary and secondary schools at the government house in Ado Ekiti.
Fayose said, “I am still in the presidential race I am only waiting for the time Ekiti governorship election will hold so I can have the time.
“Though, I am making contacts, I am reaching out to the people that matter across the country.
“I have no role to play, only the NWC will present the delegate lists for them to elect the candidate, so I won’t interfere despite my support for Prof Kolapo Olusola.
“I have no regret supporting Olusola , if it were those people I had supported, they won’t be abusing me.
“But they remain our brothers and sister and we are going to put our house in order at the right time so that we can be on the same page.
“Don’t vote for those that will come here and sack you. When they sacked your colleagues in Kaduna State, annot good for Ekiti teachers.
“Prof Olusola is a man of integrity, very hardworking and dependable , he won’t betray you. He will protect your interests and I want you to support him.”
