The former Governor of Ekiti State and Peoples Democratic Party's chieftain, Ayodele Fayose, has declared for southern presidency in the forthcoming 2023 election.

Fayose made this disclosure in a tweet on his verified handle on Wednesday.

He said, “The current President of Nigeria is a two-term northern Presidency, thus implying that it must be a southern Presidency in 2023 or nothing.”

This is contrary as his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, fields a northerner in the person of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as its flagbearer for the 2023 presidential election.

Fayose noted that, “Awa ‘South’ lo kan’. Nigerians should await details soon.”
