He recently revealed that if Fayose is not ready to do it willingly, he might be compelled to join the race.
According to him, he is sure APC will win the Ekiti governorship election in 2022 because Governor Fayemi has done credibly well in the state, and any other party might destroy Ekiti again.
He added that the time has come for a president to come from Ekiti, and Fayemi is the best man for the job.
His words, “We can say boldly that APC will win the Ekiti governorship election in 2022, because Governor Fayemi has done credibly well and we don’t want another reckless party that will destroy Ekiti again.
“On the 2023 presidency, the time has come for President to come from Ekiti. That is why we are pleading with you to support Governor Fayemi.
“Though, Governor Fayemi has never said he wanted to contest, but we will force him to plunge into the race, because of his competence, dedication and loyalty to APC”.
“We are going to support him for Senatorial race in 2023, because he has done well to boost the acceptability and popularity of our party in Ekiti despite that he was denied Senatorial ticket twice. He has remained loyal, contented and committed to APC.”
