Ayodele Fayose, the Governor of Ekiti State and the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors Forum, revealed that he would soon become Nigeria’s Vice President and eventually the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“I will be the vice president of Nigeria, even the President very soon,” he said.
The Governor stated this during an interview programme “Focus Nigeria” on African Independent Television (AIT) on Tuesday.
While speaking on the PDP crisis and the emergence of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as PDP’s National Chairman, Fayose described all those supporting Sheriff as “Political Nonentities”.
He noted that Sheriff is just a general without soldiers not to even speak of battalion.
“Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is a general without soldiers not to talk of having a battalion. If he is sure of his stand and strength, let him go for a popularity contest with Senator Ahmed Markafi.”
“Without any gain saying, Markafi is high above Sheriff. Markafi has the state governors supporting him. The National Assembly caucus are backing Markafi. Former ministers, former governors, former members of the National Assembly are also in support of Markafi.
“In quantity and quality of support, Markafi is shoulder high above Sheriff who is only deluding himself with the rent-a-crowd politicians that he goes to town with. All the organs of the party, including the Board of Trustees, are firmly behind Markafi,” he said.
