Ayodele Fayose, Wike’s Ally, meets Shettima as rumours of defection to APC heighten
Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti, met with Senator Kashim Shettima, the APC’s vice presidential candidate, on Tuesday.
Prior to the upcoming countrywide presidential election on February 25, Shettima paid the well-known politician a visit at his residence in Lagos to solicit support.
Fayose, who is part of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) camp of disgruntled governors and party members led by Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, skipped Atiku Abubakar’s presidential campaign rally in Ekiti State last week.
The former governor of Borno State announced the trip to Lagos in a post to his Facebook timeline that included images of Fayose and him in his home.
He stated, “I visited my brother, Ayodele Peter Fayose, the former governor of Ekiti State.
“The great Oshoko gave us a gracious and uncommonly friendly welcome. God bless you for hosting me and my team, and thank you for your support,” he continued.
According to information gathered by this online newspaper, the visit takes place shortly after the national working committee of the PDP disbanded the state working committee for the Ekiti state chapter.
Additionally, the party suspended Joju Fayose, who is running for a seat in the House of Representatives, along with a number of other candidates.
The Ekiti strongman may soon set up camp somewhere else, according to this development, which has given rumors more fuel.
“I’m not leaving at all”
However, Fayose has disproved the idea that he would join the opposition. He claimed that visiting him during election season was common practice for politicians seeking his support.
“Anyone looking for votes will visit anyone,” he said. They have the right to do so. Additionally, the vice presidential candidate of the APC visiting the opposition demonstrates humility.
“The visit demonstrates the level of respect and importance that are given to me, and I make no apologies for that. If anyone wants to come see me, I’m available.
