Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose says there’s no law stopping him from leaving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Fayose also said that he would not hesitate to leave the party if it was handed over to those who are determined to destroy it.

“I am still a member of the PDP and still the Chairman of the PDP governor’s forum, there are no two sides to it,” Fayose said on Wednesday, May 16, during a meeting with students and youths in the state.

“But the strategy for 2018 poll is strictly my own business. No law says I should not run on the platform of another party if the PDP is no longer a right direction depending on circumstances.

“If they are bent on destroying the PDP, let them go ahead but I will never have anything to do with Senator Sheriff. The party is like a vehicle and the vehicle can’t be more important than the driver," he added.
