Mr Ayodele Fayose, former governor of Ekiti State, has disclosed that he worked against his party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the February 25, 2023 election.

Fayose, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said that he worked against Atiku “100%” because the party has not been fair to him.

The PDP Chieftain also noted that he was not afraid of being thrown out of the party, for making the revelation.

According to Fayose, he supported President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress based on principle.

He said this when he appeared on Channels Television on Sunday night.

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

“But I love the PDP even though the party has not been fair to me. I am a principled man. So, let me say to you, I never worked for PDP during the last election. I am not a liar and a pretender. I did not work for PDP.”

He said he remained a member of the PDP “except the PDP says ‘Fayose, we don’t you anymore.’ Then they have set me free of the yoke. But in all sincerity, it is a party that I believe in, subscribe to and want to stay forever. I will never join the APC.”
