Fayemi says 2023 Presidential campaign poster not from him
By Samuel Ogunsona
The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi has said that the online campaign posters linking him with 2023 Presidential election did not emanate from his office.
In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary Mr Yinka Oyebode and made available to Irohinoodua, Fayemi said he did not authorise the posters.
He said the campaign posters being purportedly circulated on social media by the Chairman of Ikere Local Government Council, Mr Femi Ayodele canvassing support for Dr Fayemi for the 2023 presidential election designed with the logo of the All Progressives Congress (APC) came to him as a surprise.
He said he was mindful of the possible interpretation such an unauthorised act could be given by well-meaning members of the public.
He said Fayemi does not have any knowledge of the campaign poster neither did he authorise Mr Ayodele or any person or group of persons to start a campaign on his behalf.
“As a matter of fact, Mr Ayodele does not and cannot speak for the Governor on any matter, be it policy, administrative or political.
Governor Fayemi has reiterated over and over that he has a four-year mandate as Governor of Ekiti State and he is focused on actualising his promises to the people of the state through pragmatic leadership and systemic implementation of his administration’s five pillars of development.”
He said further “This also serves as a note of caution to political appointees, government functionaries, political associates and groups to operate within the ambit of decency and steer clear of actions that are capable of distracting the government, the party and the Governor.”
