Ayo Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti state, has refuted online rumours that he pledged his support for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC’s nominee for president in the 2023 general elections.
In a widely circulated report, Fayose, a PDP chieftain, was quoted as saying that while he had nothing against Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate, and Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), he would vote for Tinubu in 2023.
“I have nothing against Atiku, Peter Obi is not my enemy but JAGABAN is my choice” Fayose was alleged to have tweeted.
However, speaking with DAILY INDEPENDENT, Lere Olayinka, Fayose’s media aide described the statement as fake news.
” It is not true. He never said anything like that. Disregard the fake news” he said.
