Although the governor is yet to formally declare his intention to run for the office, his supporters and admirers have gone to town to drum up support for his ambition.
Only on Saturday, the APC caretaker committee led by its state chairperson, Paul Omotoso, openly endorsed Mr Fayemi for the presidency in 2023.
But an opposing group within the party, and under the platform of APC Stakeholders Forum, has rejected the call for the governor to run, arguing that the governor could not benefit from a zoning arrangement he is well known to be opposed to.
However, a statement by the secretary of the stakeholders’ forum, Bamigboye Adegoroye, in Ado Ekiti, on Monday, denounced Mr Omotoso’s claim that all the stakeholders had resolved to back Mr Fayemi’s presidential ambition.
