The Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi on Thursday attended the official presidential declaration ceremony of the former Governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun.
This is coming a few hours after the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum declared his intention to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari at the end of his tenure.
Fayemi was spotted at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, the venue of Amosun’s presidential declaration ceremony.
Amosun on Thursday had expressed his intention to emerge as the president of Nigeria in 2023.
The former Governor of Ogun State on his part had attended the official declaration of Fayemi in Abuja on Wednesday, an action which was described by Nigerians as a cruise.
Some Nigerians were wondering why the presidential aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress would attend each other’s presidential declaration.
Others think they are in the presidential race to reduce the chances of the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu.
Tinubu had expressed his intention to contest under the ruling party.
