You Are Unfit To Contest For Presidency; PDP Fires-back At Fayose
In what seems to be like a new breeding party crisis, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) has dashed the hopes of the party's governor's forum chairman and the current governor of Ekiti state, Gov. Ayodale Fayose, of becoming her 2019 presidential flag-bearer to the rocks.
The party has declared that it will not support of the governor's presidential ambition and asked him to respect the party's zoning arrangement.
The PDP, through the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye has admonished 'to respect the decisions taken by the party on zoning.'

“The highest organ of the party, which is the national convention, zoned the presidential ticket of the PDP to the North. That has not changed. The same national convention zoned the position of the national chairman to the South. The convention has yet to change any of these two." uterly surprised Adeyeye declared.
He continued, “That (national convention) is the supreme organ of the party. Those decisions are binding on all members of the party. Nobody can alter these decisions."
Prince Adeyeye wondered why Fayose would want to disobey the party despite his position as a leader, Adeyeye further said,“The governor is a member of the party and was at the convention where these decisions were taken. As a leader of the party, one expected the governor to respect the party and its decisions. If someone in such an office is breaking the decisions of the party, what do you expect from the rank and file."
Recall that Ifeanyicy.com reported that Fayose had sent his official letters of declaration of intents to the executives of the party to inform them about his decision to run for the Presidency on the platform of the PDP.
The governor who has dared the party has continued in his plea for support, damning the party's stand on zoning of presidential ticket and party chairmanship.
