Former Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has debunked reports claiming he had pledged to support the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in the 2023 general elections.
Fayose, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was alleged to have said while he had nothing against Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) his choice in 2023 is Tinubu.
“I have nothing against Atiku, Peter Obi is not my enemy but JAGABAN is my choice,” Fayose was alleged to have tweeted.
Debunking the statement, Lere Olayinka, Fayose’s media aide described the report as fake news.
“It is not true. He never said anything like that. Disregard the fake news,” he said.
