2023: I Will Love To Be President – Fayose


A former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has insisted that he has interest in becoming the president of Nigeria, if opportunity permits.

The ex-governor also said he was not interested in the rumored presidential ambition of the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, in 2023.

Asked about his view concerning 2023, he said the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is capable of producing a president after the expiration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure.

“Bola Tinubu is a leader in the West. It is a statement of fact. I have never met former governor Ahmed Bola Tinubu in the last three years and I have never spoken with him on the phone once. So, I don’t know how they are tying the relationship politically.

“To the best of my knowledge, I am not a member of APC. I have no influence on how he will become if he wants to become. I have no interest; the only interest I have is that a PDP president must be put in place”, Mr. Fayose said in an interview with Punch Newspaper on Wednesday.

He also reiterated his earlier stance about his ambition to be the president of the country.

“The office of the president is a noble one and I will love to be the president of Nigeria if the opportunity permits”, he noted.

This is not the first time Mr. Fayose would be speaking on his ambition to be president in Nigeria. He made a similar comment in 2017 at Ado Ekiti while hosting journalists to a dinner.

“It was the same prophesy that said I would return as governor of Ekiti when I was in the trenches that predicted that I will govern the whole country. Many did not believe the first one but it happened just as we are waiting for the manifestation of the second one.
