Ekiti State governor Ayo Fayose, has reportedly removed the logo of the Peoples Democratic Party and posters from his campaign office in the state ahead of the 2018 governorship election.
NaijaNews.com learnt that Fayose removed the logo and name of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from his campaign office at Olora junction, Adebayo, Ado- Ekiti.
Before now, the building had Fayose’s picture embossed on PDP logo with the inscription: “Fayose Our Leader, Architect of Modern Ekiti.”
However, the emblem of the PDP was missing from a new billboard installed by the governor close to the gate of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH).
The billboard, with Fayose’s portrait, reads: “Ekiti 2018: Support Continuity, Fayose Leads, We Follow. Again, It’s Going To Be 16-0.”
Similarly, mini signposts mounted on Ado-Ikere Road, which bored the logo and name of PDP alongside Fayose’s name, have been removed.
They were replaced with ones without PDP name and logo, but with Fayose’s pictures, and the statement: “Ni 2018, E Standby”, meaning “My People Be on Standby in 2018.”
“Fayose does not want to be caught unawares. Nobody knows how the PDP factional crisis will end. It will be suicidal for him to wait till the end of litigation at the Supreme Court,” a PDP chieftain said of the development.
Meanwhile, Fayose says he will not contest for elective office again.
While meeting with civil servants in Ekiti state he said his main preoccupation, henceforth, is to advocate for a better Nigeria.
He noted that he will not contest the senatorial seat in the 2019 elections.
“I don’t want to contest again, not even for senatorial race in 2019,” he said
