The Ekiti State Governor-elect, Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji, on Wednesday met with former Governor Ayodele Fayose at his Lagos residence.
Naija News reports that Oyebanji was the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Ekiti election held two weeks ago.
Recall that Oyebanji, a former Secretary to the State Government (SSG), gathered 187,057 votes to defeat Fayose’s candidate, Bisi Kolawole of the Peoples Democratic Party, who gathered 67,457 votes.
While the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party, Segun Oni, came second with 82,211 votes.
Following Oyebanji’s emergence as the governor-elect, some Nigerians took to social media to mock Fayose and accuse the former governor of working for the APC.
Meanwhile, Fayose is reportedly set to dump the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The former Ekiti State governor gave a hint in a post on his verified Twitter page on Wednesday.
According to Fayose, it was the turn of the South to produce Nigeria’s next president after Muhammadu Buhari’s two-term as president.
Using a Yoruba slang now attached to the APC Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, Fayose said it is the turn of the south or nothing.
The PDP chieftain promised to give Nigerians more details on his tweet soon.
