Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti, has disclosed that during the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria, he worked for the victory of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Fayose made this revelation during an interview with Channels TV on Sunday, July 9, where he claimed he would not accept a ministerial appointment from President Tinubu.
The former Ekiti governor categorically noted during the interview: “I never worked for the PDP during the last elections. I cannot work for two people at the same time.
“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, they dissolved the party excos, suspended and expelled my son alongside myself.”
Fayose noted that those in his rank and age group in Nigeria should be paving the way for Nigerian youths whose future, according to him, “has been stolen”.
His words: “If I want to be honest with you, any of us that have reached the age of 65 and above, Asiwaju should tell us to go and bring our children.
“Already, their future had been stolen. The future of these young people had already been stolen.”
