*APC Should Forget About Ekiti 2018
Former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashid Ladoja, has said no one in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should debar Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, from contesting the Presidential election in 2019, stressing that doing so would amount to breaching the governor’s fundamental human rights.

Ladoja, who visited Fayose at the Governor’s office in Ado-Ekiti, yesterday, said Fayose is eminently qualified to contest for presidency in 2019, insisting that no one should stop him.

He said: “Governor Fayose is a go-getter. Whatever he sets his mind to achieve, he goes for it and he gets it. He is eminently qualified and possesses all the leadership capabilities to rule Nigeria and take us out of the woods.


“Some people in the PDP have said that they have zoned the presidency to the north, but it is left for Fayose to convince members to support him for his presidential ambition. He is fit for it, judging from his antecedents as a quintessential leader in the country. I also want to advise the party leadership to use zoning of the presidency in a way that would guarantee the PDP a win in 2019, and not as a way of favouring some individuals who may not be ready for the job.

Ladoja, who reiterated his intention to join PDP also advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti to perish the thought of taking over power from the PDP in 2018, adding: “Fayose has performed excellently well in governing Ekiti.”
