Fayose urged the PDP's leadership to do more than it is already doing to avert the terrible fate awaiting it. He prayed that his warning will not be ignored by the opposition party.
"I see more serious turbulence for PDP more than ever before. I have been silent all this while hoping that things will get better.

Fayose picked Tinubu as preferred presidential candidate? PDP chieftain opens up
Meanwhile, Fayose had debunked online reports claiming that he promised to support Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general elections.
Fayose, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, was alleged to have said his choice in 2023 is Tinubu, though he had nothing against Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).
“I have nothing against Atiku, Peter Obi is not my enemy but JAGABAN is my choice,” Fayose was alleged to have said.
