The Wife of Ekiti state governor,Erelu Bisi Fayemi has  cautioned those behind the spread of  a viral pictorial  report  about her,nursing senatorial ambition.

Mrs Fayemi Warns those behind the news to desist from slander/ libel.


The  report of her Senatorial  intent was indicated  via an Online poster which contained Mrs Fayemi’s picture stating   her ambition to the Upper chamber.

The wife of the state governor who disapproved the allegation in a press statement she personally signed  stated it’s a fabrication which is very far from the truth . The statement reads:

“This morning, I woke up to see posters online for Erelu Bisi Fayemi, Senate Ekiti North. This information has been circulating for some time now so it is nothing new. Today’s poster was however released the morning after Mr Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji (BAO) emerged as Gubernatorial Candidate for the next Governorship election in Ekiti State. Those behind this mischief have been floating the narrative that the Senatorial seat is going to be my reward for supporting Mr Oyebanji’s aspiration. My position is as follows:

“I have no interest whatsoever in contesting for a Senatorial seat. I have never discussed this with anyone and how this story keeps circulating is a mystery. Let me repeat, I am not interested.

“My sole political agenda in Ekiti State is to support my husband, HE Dr Kayode Fayemi, and to ensure that he finishes well. My husband’s success is the only reward I need”

Mrs Fayemi stated “The Ekiti  APC Primaries were held on January 27th, and a winner was declared by the relevant authorities. Many people of all ages spent a lot of time promoting their candidates online, a very important part of the political process. However, this can be done without resorting to slander, libel, and other untoward acts. While the principals concerned will find ways to resolve their differences, those who bear arms in their name on all sides need to be careful. I would therefore like to appeal for a cessation of hostilities and for all hands to be on deck”

Mrs Fayemi therefore congratulate the APC candidate,Biodun Oyebanji on his emergence, looking forward to a successful campaign and victory in June.

“Once again, please ignore the fake news”, the governor’s wife added.
