Femi Adeleye, a member of Ekiti All Progressives Congress (APC) Stakeholders forum against Kayode Fayemi’s rumored presidential ambition, has lifted the lids on the reason why they don't want the southwest governor as president
Speaking with Vanguard, the secretary of the forum said they want APC national leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
Adeleye shedding more light on the group’s position explained that the former Lagos state governor has demonstrated over and again the capacity to manage human resources.
He went on to note that looking at everyone in APC from Yoruba land, there isn't one person who Tinubu did not mentor including Fayemi.
The lawmaker also added that the APC national leader has invested massively in human development.
The secretary of the forum is of the opinion that Tinubu should be given the opportunity to lead the country since he has produced people who are great men today in their various fields.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the APC in Ekiti state is engulfed in crisis over Governor Fayemi's presidential ambition.
The governor's speculated ambition to run for president in 2023 has polarised the ranks and files of the party in the state.
The APC had endorsed Fayemi for the presidential race, saying the time has come for the president to come from Ekiti.
The party’s state chairman, Paul Omotosho, who spoke through the spokesman, Ade Ajayi said that the governor has paid his dues in the ruling APC and Nigeria’s political firmament at large and deserves to be the next president of Nigeria.
In a related development, Dayo Adeyeye, a former lawmaker and minister of state for work, opened up on the reason behind the establishment of South-West Agenda (SWAGA), an initiative launched for the presidential campaign of Tinubu, ahead of 2023.
The former lawmaker said SWAGA was launched because of the belief in the capacity and the ability of "Tinubu to lead Nigeria at this present time."
