    The Governor of Ekiti State and Chairman of the Nigeria Governor’s Forum, Kayode Fayemi on Thursday revealed why he attended the presidential declaration of the former governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun.

    This is coming a day after Governor Fayemi declared his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election.

    The decision of Fayemi to attend Amosun’s declaration a day after the former Governor of Ogun State attended his declaration stirred reaction online.

    Fayemi called on Nigerians not to be surprised by his decision to attend the event, adding that Amosun has always been there for him.

    The Presidential Aspirant said, “Some people are surprised that I am here and I don’t see any reason why you should be surprised at all.

    “Senator Amosun and I go back a long way and he has always been there for me. He was at my declaration yesterday as many of you may be aware.

    “Even though I’m supposed to be in Ebonyi State now on a trip with Mr President, I had to beg to be allowed to be present here, because I think this is important for our country.”

    Fayemi claimed that all presidential aspirants under the ruling party are out to improve the human condition and transform the lives of ordinary Nigerians.

    The Ekiti State Governor said, “What we are all about, at least in our party, is the improvement of the human condition; it is to transform the lives of ordinary Nigerians and this is not an entitlement. None of us should have any sense of entitlement. We should depend on the gratitude and grace of ordinary members of this party and the grace of God Almighty.

    “This is what I know Senator Amosun to be as a human being, as a believer in God and as a compassionate Nigerian. Many have talked about his generosity. He is a forthright person; he is not a manipulative person; he is not a disingenuous person, he is straightforward. He is frank, sometimes to a fault.

    “Running for office is something he is doing out of conviction and he has demonstrated this in the previous assignments that he has held.”

    The Chairman of NGF expressed surprise at the similarity of their speeches, which he said, “shows that we come from the same ideological orientation.”

    Fayemi added, “All I can say in conclusion is that you can be sure that between Senator Ibikunle Amosun and Dr Kayode Fayemi, whichever way it goes, you will have us in the tent, not outside the tent.

    “You are spoiled for choice between two brothers and I am sure you will arrive at an appropriate conclusion.”
