Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State on Thursday declared his intention to contest for presidency in 2023.

In a statement, the two-term governor also denied endorsing another former governor Peter Obi to be president of Nigeria.

“Report credited to me that I endorsed Peter Obi for President and zoning of the Presidency to the South-East is false,” the statement said.

“No doubt, I have great respect for Peter Obi as a leader and I respect his aspiration, but at no point did I endorse his presidential ambition or that the presidency be zoned to South-East.

“Rather, my take is that the presidency be zoned to the Southern part of Nigeria. May I also state clearly that I will be seeking the ticket of the PDP to contest the next presidential election.”


His statement followed the withdrawal of PDP chieftain Doyin Okupe from the presidential race to support Mr Obi.
