The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Thursday dismissed reports claiming he would run alongside former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2019.
An online platform had it that PDP has “quietly” settled for Atiku as Presidential candidate and Fayose as the Vice President.
But reacting to the report, Fayose through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka said it is one of “the many mystery” of the platform.
Olayinka said his principal had no knowledge of such decision by the former ruling party.
According to Olayinka, “I saw the report on Saharareporters like every other person; that will be one of the many mysteries of Sahareporters. As I’m talking to you, there is nothing like that.
“Fayose will officially declare his intention to run for the presidency latest by October. This issue of Fayose vying for presidency with Atiku is not correct.”
