Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Wednesday, which was monitored by Quest Times, the former governor, hours after he obtained the presidential form, lamented that the consensus mode of election is undemocratic and will only rob eligible candidates like himself of the opportunity he deserves.
“They said they want all of us to come and do consensus. I don’t know about them but I have taken a form today and I am not going to step down.

“Do you know the mind of Nigerians? Do you know who they want? I will go to that election and I won’t step down. Any meeting or anywhere they talk about consensus, as good as that language looks, it is undemocratic,” he said.
Earlier in the day, Fayose stormed the PDP National Secretariat in Abuja to purchase the N40 million Expression of Interest and Nomination forms.
This makes him the first aspirant to obtain the party’s presidential form from the southwest, ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
