2019 Presidency: Fayose’s declaration wake up call to northern politicians – Sango

The Chairman , Plateau chapter of the PDP , Mr Damishi Sango , has said that Ekiti governor Ayo Fayose 's enthusiasm for the 2017 presidential challenge was a "reminder " to northern politicians . 

"The governor needs political exercises to commence; winning the administration requires long time arranging and the governor seems frustrated with the hush in the PDP camp . That is the reason he has offered himself for the activity ," Sango said on Tuesday in Jos .

Fayose launched his campaign for the top seat last month and expressed confidence that he would easily defeat President Muhammadu Buhari or any other candidate the rival APC might field .
His declaration has , however , sparked off many reactions, with officials of the party saying that the PDP had zoned its ticket to the northern part of the country .
Fayose is from the South- West .

But Sango , in an interview, said that the governor ’s declaration was a challenge to politicians in the north.

“Yes , the party has zoned its presidential ticket to the north , but it does not preclude others from indicating interest .

“If politicians in the north are silent and appear not interested , other party members from other parts of the country are free to show their interest and fight for acceptance ,” he said .

Sango advised politicians to start preparing for the 2019 general elections “in earnest ”, stressing that winning elections required long and proper planning that required massive efforts over a long period of time.

He said that the silence from the northern politicians was sending the wrong signal , and advised people interested in the presidency to declare such ambition to enable party members to weigh the available options .

On the Plateau local government elections slated for Feb . 17 , 2017, Sango said that the PDP was ready to “contest and win every seat ”.

We are not worried about the power of incumbency ; we are conducting primary elections and mobilising our supporters for the great day.

“We have said that we lost the governorship because of an ` internal mistake’. We shall not allow that mistake to repeat itself ,” he said .
