Ekiti State Governor and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Kayode Fayemi, says only God knows what his political future holds in the 2023 general elections.

Fayemi made this known on Sunday when he spoke on THISDAY Live, an interview programme on Arise Television.

Fayemi’s presidential campaign posters had gone viral in August 2020 and had sparked public debate on various social media platforms regarding the possibility of his candidacy in the 2023 presidential election.

The sponsor of the posters and Chairman of Ikere Council area of Ekiti State, Femi Ayodele, had said he did the posters, with the campaign message, ‘Support His Excellency Dr John Kayode Fayemi for President 2023’ “to show my unalloyed and uncompromising loyalty to Governor Fayemi” to dispel speculations that he was working against him.

But the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Yinka Oyebode, had said that his principal did not know anything about the posters.

“The sponsor is merely expressing a personal opinion,” he had said.

Ayodele was later directed to “step aside” by the Ekiti State House of Assembly over alleged unauthorised viral campaign poster seeking support for Fayemi’s presidential ambition.

But when asked on Sunday whether he would be running for President in 2023, Fayemi said, “I have a job to do; I want to finish well as governor of Ekiti State, I want to do more to put Ekiti on the pedestal of growth and development in the period that is left for me in office.

“What the future holds, God knows, but we will cross that bridge when we get there. For now, my primary responsibility is Ekiti State.”
