Adelusi revealed that although other People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirants, including Atiku Abubakar and Rabiu Kwakwanso, have approached him, Fayose has decided, for now, to be neutral.

He said:

Governor Ayodele Fayose has decided to bury his ambition because of the last Ekiti governorship election that was rigged by the APC and we have already filed a petition at the tribunal.

So presently, the governor is more concerned in getting back the mandate of his deputy, Professor Eleka, than his presidential bid.

That’s the preoccupation for now, so for that reason, he has decided to put his ambition aside, and face the petition in the tribunal and make sure the PDP gets its mandate back.

As the chairman of the PDP’s Governors’ Forum, he has remained neutral. Alhaji Atiku has visited him, Rabiu Kwankwaso has visited him and Taminu Turaki has also visited him. Before now, Sule Lamido has visited him, Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo has equally visited him
