As the crisis within the opposition People’s Democratic Party thickens, Former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose on Wednesday vowed to support the governor-elect, Biodun Oyebanji towards the development of Ekiti State.

This is coming on the same day he reinstated his support for the southern presidency, stating that a southerner should succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.

This despite his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has presented a presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar who is from the Northern region.

According to reports, the former governor made the remarks while playing host to Oyebanji, who paid him a visit after winning the June 18 Governorship election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.

Fayose’s words: “I promise to support Oyebanji’s administration in whatever area his support would be needed. The development of Ekiti State is a collective effort.
