A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has backed the presidential ambition of Governor Ayodele Fayose of EKiti State.

He said Fayose will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s President in 2019.

Fani-Kayode noted that no force could stop Fayose from becoming the next President of Nigeria.

He stated this on Thursday at the presidential declaration of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State in Abuja.

The former Minister said under Fayose, Ekiti State has been blessed.

He also said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has also been blessed with Fayose being a prominent member and leader.

The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Dayo Adeyeye had warned Fayose to jettison his presidential ambition under the party, maintaining that PDP has zoned the presidential ticket to the north.

Fayose, however, insisted that he is going straight to Aso Villa as Nigeria’s next president in 2019.
