Peter Obi Meets Fayose In Lagos

Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, on Sunday, met with former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.

Obi met the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain at his residence in Lagos.

A former Aide and ally of Fayose, Lere Olayinka, confirmed this in a post on his social media handle on Sunday.

Lere Olayinka had shared photos of Fayose and the former Anambra State Governor, with the caption: “Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi visits former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose in his Lagos residence today.”

Obi dumped the PDP after obtaining the party’s presidential ticket to become the candidate of the Labour Party.

The purpose of Obi’s meeting with Fayose is not yet known, but there are insinuations that the Ekiti former governor might be planning to work for him in the 2023 election.

Fayose had earlier stated that he would not support the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, over the way he and other PDP leaders treated Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State after the party’s primary.
