Ekiti Governor and Chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum, Ayo Fayose, has restated his desire to become Nigeria’s President come 2019 and assured that the governors would continue to align with the ideals of the party and support it to regain power.
Fayose made this known at the party’s Non-Elective National Convention in Abuja.
He said that the party would, as it had just done, overcome other challenges that may arise and win the general elections in 2019.
He urged members of the party and supporters to work towards and begin to congratulate themselves because “re-occupying Aso Rock in 2019 is certain’’.
He said that from 2019, he would be attending to the needs of Nigerians from the Presidential Villa, recalling that he had indicated interest in the Presidency of the country.
“The crowd here in the convention arena is a testimony of what is happening in Nigeria, the party is now a religion and a belief that we are going back to `our Villa’.
“I am going there, i don’t know how many of you will be ready to go there.
“PDP will take Nigeria out of one chance and give it plenty chances.
“We made a mistake but our ability to correct it is the one that is important, we fell and we are bound to rise, so, it is time to arise and shine and let your light be seen by men,’’ he said.
Fayose added that Nigeria would be liberated from poverty that had set into its national life since PDP left office.
