Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, has insisted he won’t join the party in power. (APC).

A few days after the 2023 elections were held, he said it on Tuesday’s episode of Politics Today on Channels Television. Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from northern Nigeria, was opposed by Fayose, who believed that power should migrate to the south.

“Many Nigerians have had their statements challenged at various points, leading them to either retract their statements or make new ones. I’m standing here to let you know that I will never join the APC. I no longer participate in politics for what it is. I was given two fair chances to lead Ekiti, and I took down two incumbents on both occasions.

According to him, the principles of equality dictated that southern Nigeria should assume control at the federal level, and this is why he supported Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as president-elect.

“I don’t apologize for my behavior in the present or the future. I haven’t concealed the fact that I appreciate Bola Asiwaju, he continued.

The main opposition PDP was divided and unprepared for the 2023 elections, according to the former governor. If the party wants to win the 2027 elections, Fayose urged them to tighten their ranks and focus on those elections.

The events building up to the elections in 2023 and the overwhelming interest from young people, he added, demonstrate that things are not as they used to be and advised the nation’s leaders to get their act together.

“Young people’s contempt was evident. They attacked the leaders’ necks, severed them, and took over the area. Please allow me to reiterate that this is a caution and further warning for anyone entering and returning that if you mistreat the populace, they will mistreat you in four years, Fayose added.
