Fayose cannot contest for the presidency – Nwodo

Former Governor of Enugu State and a Board of Trustee (BoT) member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo has said that Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, cannot contest in the party’s primary poll for 2019 presidential election.

He made this known on Thursday in Abuja shortly after Fayose’s officially declared his intention to contest for the position of president of Nigeria in 2019 on PDP’s platform.

In a chat with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Dr. Nwodo that PDP’s ideology excludes Fayose and other party members from the South from contesting in the presidential race in 2019.

He said that “Fayose cannot run and I will tell you my reason.

“When we formed PDP, the first battle we fought and won as a party was to zone the presidency to the South.

“Those of us from the south made a case because in the first republic, the prime minister was from the North; in the second republic, the president was from the North, and in the third republic, a southerner won and the election was annulled.

“There was no way we could go back to the south and say let’s elect a northerner again without giving the south a slot.

“A decision was taken that the presidency should come from the south and the chairman of the party to come from the north.

“That was how Solomon Lar became the chairman of PDP and secretary was zoned to the south; that was how I became the first secretary of the party,’’ he said.

Nwodo, who is also a former National Chairman of the party said the decision is to ensure that its Constitution and ordinances were respected.

Speaking further, he gave an example with Rimi who tried it in the past but failed to achieve his aim.

“For example, late Abubakar Rimi, former Governor of Kano State paid for a form and wanted to run.

“Then I was the national secretary, I returned his cheque and informed him that the party had taken a decision that the presidential candidate could only come from southern Nigeria.

“When we went to the Convention in Jos, he went to the venue and started to campaign without having a form because we didn’t give him.

“We had to get some party leaders around to go and counsel him; we didn’t want security agencies to manhandle or embarrass him and good counsel prevailed and he stepped down.

“That was what PDP did and now we did not only zone the presidency to the north, we have re-emphasised at every opportunity we had that the zoning will take place.

“So, the party will not collect expression of interest money from anybody else who is not from the North and will not issue him a nomination form to contest; no, we will not do that,’’

I really hope that someone at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I thought that the most ideal way to do this would be to reach out to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was hoping if someone could suggest a trusted site where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Sales Leads I am already reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com.
