Ekiti state Governor Ayodele Fayose has inaugurated his 2019 presidential ambition.
The Punch reports that Fayose had initially said he would approach the Supreme Court to determine his eligibility to run again for the office of governor of his state because of his inability to finish his first term in office.
Fayose, who is the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum, was one of the two governors in the party who spoke vehemently against the continued stay in office of the former National Chairman of the party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.
Ironically, the governor was also among the few governors who brought the former governor of Borno state to the office of the national chairman of the former ruling party.
The PDP had zoned the position of the party’s presidential candidate to the northern part of the country.
The three organs of the party, which are the Expanded National Caucus, Board of Trustees and the National Executive Committee, are meeting in Abuja in Monday July 17 and Tuesday July 18.
