Fayemi Reveals He Visited Tinubu In London Because He Had Surgery, Not For 2023

Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has revealed that he and Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu visited the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu in London to show solidarity with him because he had surgery.

Fayemi, who is also the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, made this known on Sunday when he spoke on THISDAY Live, an interview programme on Arise TV.

According to the governor, Tinubu had surgery and he had visited the former Lagos State governor alongside his Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu, to show solidarity, adding that his visit to Tinubu was not connected to the 2023 general elections.

Fayemi said: “He (Akeredolu) and I were in London together to see our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, but it had absolutely nothing to do with 2023 presidential plans whatsoever. That’s not the reason why we went there.

“Asiwaju had just surgery, it is simply proper etiquette or behaviour both in the part of the country where I come from but also generally that when a friend and elder is undergoing health challenges, it would be improper on your part not to show solidarity and support.

“That is simply what took us there; we wanted to associate ourselves with him at a time of need and as an elder, as a mentor and as a big figure in our political party, nothing wrong in paying him a courtesy visit to check on him to see how he was faring and we did that and we returned.

“It has nothing to do with 2023; let me make that absolutely clear.”
