Fayose dumps PDP after Tinubu’s victory, claims Atiku rejected one term

Ayodele Fayose, former Ekiti State governor has announced his resignation from the PDP.

This is coming hours after his party lost the presidential election to the APC's candidate, Bola Tinubu.

The former Ekiti governor who announced his resignation while appearing as a guest on ARISE TV claimed that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar had rejected the offer of one term in office to get the G5 governors’ support. Atiku lost the G5 governors' states to APC's Tinubu who won three and Labour Party candidate, Obi, won two states.

Announcing his resignation, Fayose said, "From today, I'm no longer a member of PDP

When asked if that was a resignation, he said: "Let me put it this way, in party politics. Because there are certain facts. I am 62. I'm saying it here starting today, I'm stepping aside because I need to speak like a leader in this country. I had posted on my twitter handle even in January or December I warned the PDP about this problem. If not solved this group will be consumed, I told them danger is ahead. Speaking further, Fayose accused the National Chairman of the party, Iyiorcha Ayu, of the party's failure at the poll.

He urged the party to accept the defeat, alleging that they are sponsoring protests against the outcome of the election.

"That Ayu was the one who led Atiku to the gutters. They took him to the gutter. You see when a man can't come out. What does he want to do when he's 80?

Reacting to a video of civil society members protesting the Abuja election results, Fayose said: “Let me first blame the people I saw here today who call themselves civil society. No, they are members of the PDP.
