Former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose has vowed to support the governor-elect under All progressive Congress, APC, Biodun Oyebanji towards the development of Ekiti State.
This is coming after he reinstated his support for the southern presidency despite his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has presented a presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar who is from the Northern region.
Despite being a member of people’s democratic party, PDP, DAILY GIST reported that Fayose in a statement on wednesday had expressed his support for a southerner to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
The former governor has also declared support for the governor-elect in Ekiti
He made the remarks while playing host to Oyebanji, who paid him a visit after winning the June 18 Governorship election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
Fayose’s words: “I promise to support Oyebanji’s administration in whatever area his support would be needed. The development of Ekiti State is a collective effort.
“You have to see all Ekiti people as your own. You are the governor of all regardless of political affiliations”.
Meanwhile, Oyebanji said the visit was to extend courtesies to Fayose as a former governor of the state, who, according to him, demonstrated statesmanship by congratulating him shortly after he was declared winner of the June 18 election
