Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, says he is qualified to be the running mate of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in 2019.
The two-term governor said this during the May edition of ‘Meet Your Governor’ his monthly media chat.
Fayose, who is known to have influenced the emergence of Ali Modu Sheriff as the national chairman of the party, said Sheriff will continue to preside over the party till the next general election.
“Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is the PDP chairman and he is going to continue in office. If he gives me the VP slot, it is a good thing for Ekiti people even though, you cannot set out to say you want to be VP.
But you people should not worry yourself about 2019 because nobody knows who will be alive in 2019 but mentioning my name for VP is good for Ekiti. I am qualified to be VP if it is the will of God. God is taking me to a higher place, how, I don’t know.”
