The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has met with Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti state.
The former governors met on Sunday at the residence of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Lagos.
This was confirmed by an ally of Fayose, Lere Olayinka, this in a post on his social media handle.
Lere Olayinka had shared photos of Fayose and the former Anambra State Governor, with the caption: “Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi visits former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose in his Lagos residence today.”
Recall that Obi dumped the PDP after obtaining the party’s presidential ticket to become the candidate of the Labour Party.
The purpose of Obi’s meeting with Fayose is not yet known, but there are insinuations that the Ekiti former governor might be planning to work for him in the 2023 election.
Fayose had earlier stated that he would not support the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, over the way he and other PDP leaders treated Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State after the party’s primary.
