However, criticism has trailed his declaration as the party has insisted that the presidency has been zoned to the north for the 2019 elections.
Fayose in a series of tweets on Friday, September 29, said the party needs him as he knows how to defeat incumbents.
Meanwhile, Senator Buruji Kashamu reacted to Governor Fayose’s declaration to contest for the 2019 presidency calling on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to sanction him.
Kashamu in a statement on Thursday, September 28, said the party had already made it clear that the 2019 presidency will be zoned to the party.
The senator said Fayose’s action showed that he was selfish and that he does not have the interest of the party or Nigerians at heart.
