The Ekiti state chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has asked Kayode Fayemi, the governor, to run for the office of the president in the 2023 election.

Paul Omotoso, the state caretaker chairman, said the party will force the governor into the presidential race because of his competence and loyalty to the ruling party.
Omotoso, who was represented by Ade Ajayi, the state publicity secretary, said this during a programme organised by Olusegun Osinkolu, a chieftain of the APC, for 1,000 members of the party in Ekiti north senatorial district, on Saturday.
He said the time has come for the president to come from Ekiti, adding that “it would no longer play second fiddle in the south-west’s politics”.
