Our Media reports that Fayose in an interview on Plustv Africa, had stated that Obaseki will lose the forthcoming Edo State governorship election.
The former Ekiti governor said despite being a PDP member, he will not support Obaseki’s re-election bid.
In a statement on Thursday, Bode George faulted Fayose’s claim, stressing that the governor was on his own.
George said: “I find it completely unacceptable. How can a committed member who has benefited immensely from the party pitch his tenth against our own candidate in Edo State?
“I am countering such remarks by telling the people of Edo State that we, members of the PDP in the South-West, that we are in support of Obaseki. We pray for him and we will work and support him to win the election.
“PDP in the South-West and I dissociate ourselves from Fayose’s statement. He is on his own because we do not know where that is coming from.”
