Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, says that any plans to unseat the President-elect Bola Tinubu in 2023 are unrealistic.

He made this statement during an interview with Channels Television on Tuesday. Fayose noted that the 2023 presidential election has come and gone and aggrieved parties are free to seek redress in court.

Fayose said prior to the election, members of the Integrity Group, which comprises five Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors and other party chieftains, were instructed to support a southern presidential candidate in their various states.

Fayose also emphasized that he would not apologize for supporting Tinubu, despite the latter being a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“The directive was that we should go and support the southern candidate because this is the position of the governors and the leaders of thought — and the southern candidates were Obi and the president-elect and I have done justice,” he said.

“I’m not desperate for an appointment. I’m somebody who will not cringe because of a piece of a meal.

“I’m contented, but for anybody to say he would unseat Ahmed Bola Tinubu, you are daydreaming, it is a nightmare you are putting yourself through. That election has come and gone.

“In America, the former president is still saying he was rigged. He who comes to equity must have clean hands. Today, in Nigeria, that election has come and gone but you are at liberty to go to court.”

Recalled On March 1, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Tinubu as the winner of the February 25 presidential election.

However, Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) and Atiku Abubakar of the PDP have approached the election tribunal to challenge the victory of Tinubu.


In another development, the former Ekiti governor said he will never join the APC while reiterating that he has withdrawn from partisan politics.

“Many people in Nigeria have been confronted with what they have said at different times and they either recant or say something new. I stand here to tell you that I will never be a member of the APC,” he said.

“I am not in politics for what it is anymore. I have been given a fair opportunity to lead Ekiti two times and defeated two incumbents.

“Nigeria is not a country we now take for granted. You will see that by the outcome of this election that a lot of people were displaced as a result of taking people for granted.”
