Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has vowed to lead an engaging opposition against the All Progressives Congress in Nigeria, especially in the South-West.
In Ado Ekiti on Wednesday, Mr. Fayose personally issued a statement that he had become a “prime demolition target” of the APC national leadership because of his “overt and unalloyed support for President Goodluck Jonathan during the campaigns”.
However, he promised to continue to remain loyal to the outgoing President, Goodluck Jonathan and be his last man standing even if all Nigerians abandon him.
“I wish to declare unequivocally that I remain loyal to President Jonathan even after May 29 as my support for his re-election and administration was not about bread and butter.
“Despite all the noise, i was convinced he was moving Nigeria in the right direction, I have no regrets supporting him. If same situation presents itself again, I would do it all over he said.
“Let me state it clearly that I, Ayodele Fayose, will still remain loyal to President Goodluck Jonathan and be his last man standing”, even if all all Nigerians desert him today.

“It is ironic that those who said worse things about the President-elect, Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) when they were in opposing parties, are the ones milling around him today, using him as an electoral talisman and criticizing us for saying things of lesser magnitude during a campaign that was mainly characterized by hate-messages from both divides, Fayose said.
“I want this to be on record that even if all PDP members decamp to APC today, I still remain the last-man standing for the party, even as I have no cause to denigrate the office of the president.
“I also promise APC a robust and engaging opposition both in the South-West and nationally, with me playing a prominent role”, Fayose said.
