Former Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose

Ex Governor of Oyo State, Ayodele Fayose has come out to advise Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State to honor his promise to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after winning the September 19 governorship polls.

He recently revealed that he knows Obaseki would win the governorship election even if he is not a fan.

According to him, he also does not support Oshiomhole and Obasseki should make sure he does not return to APC after he assumes office.

He added that he expects the current governor to want to jump ship to APC for every flimsy excuse he can give in the future.

His words, “My position is that, for obvious reasons, I am not a fan of both Gov Obaseki and Oshiomhole. That notwithstanding, I believe that Obaseki will win, but he should honour his agreement with the PDP by not returning to APC after assuming office for the second term for flimsy excuses.”
