Former Gov Fayose of PDP Stuns Ekiti People, Campaigns For Gov Fayemi Of APC (PHOTOS)
Ordinarily, his posters on the street would not have elicited any surprise given the former governor’s renewed interest to govern the state. What was however surprising is the fact that the campaign posters carried slogans endorsing the incumbent governor, Kayode Fayemi
Fayose, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have been having a running battle with leaders of the party in the state. He leads a faction of the party in the state and has been accused of organising thugs and hoodlums to beat the living daylights out of leaders of his party including former Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Obafemi Bamisile.
He was subsequently suspended by the leadership of the party in the state, but sensing the political asset Fayose is, his suspension was overturned by the national leadership of the party led by Bamanga Tukur, who got the nod from President Jonathan to play nice with Fayose and keep him in the family.
Political observers have described the campaign posters which fully endorsed Kayode Fayemi, incumbent Governor of the State and member of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) as an attempt to get back at his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Fayose posters now seen in most nooks and crannies in the State are inscribed with the words: “I stand for truth and good governance…vote Fayemi”.
Fayose’s interest in the governorship seat of the state is not going down well with some interested parties who are also eyeing the seat. Though he was shortlisted alongside other candidates like Caleb Olubolade (Ipoti, Ijero Central) and Dayo Adeyeye (Ise, Ekiti South), there are indications that the PDP in Ekiti may deploy the consensus arrangement to ease him out of the picture since he is not in the good books of the party at State level; a possible scenario which has led him to declare his support for opposition backed present Governor, Dr John Kayode Fayemi, for a second term.
