Former Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose Affirms Belief in President Tinubu’s Leadership and Yoruba Representation

…By Lola Smith for TDPel Media. Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, openly expresses his unwavering belief, admiration, and respect for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.


In an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, Fayose emphasizes that Tinubu serves as an exemplary political leader to identify with.

According to Fayose, Tinubu has consistently demonstrated his leadership qualities and has emerged as the new leader of the Yoruba race.

Celebrating Tinubu’s Birthday and Support

During his tenure as the Governor of Ekiti State, Fayose consistently celebrated Tinubu’s birthday in prominent newspapers.


This public display of support highlights Fayose’s acknowledgment of Tinubu’s influence and contribution to Nigerian politics.

In 2022, Fayose reminded then-President Muhammadu Buhari that Tinubu played a significant role in his presidential victory when the All Progressives Congress (APC) attempted to sideline him from the presidential ticket.

No Personal Benefits, South’s Turn for the Presidency

Fayose clarifies that he has not personally benefited from Tinubu, either materially or through position.

This statement emphasizes that his admiration for Tinubu is not motivated by personal gain.

Fayose, despite being a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was the first Nigerian to publicly assert that it is the turn of the South to produce the next President.


This declaration showcases Fayose’s commitment to fairness and his belief in regional rotation of power.

Supporting Tinubu Openly

Fayose recounts various instances where he openly supported Tinubu.

He recalls celebrating Tinubu’s return from knee surgery treatment by personally welcoming him in broad daylight at Bourdillon.

Fayose emphasizes that his actions were carefully considered, indicating that supporting Tinubu was a conscious decision.

He asserts that if Tinubu were not worthy of admiration, he, as an individual, would not align himself with him.
