 Ekiti State Governor Dr. Kayode Fayemi has declared that his visit to Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu in London was not connected to the 2923 presidecy. 

 Fayemi who is the chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, stated this while speaking on Arise TV. 

 He said the visit was to show support for a friend, leader and elder which he said was normal in Yoruba culture to check on a friend when he or she is having health challenges. “

"Asiwaju has just had surgery. It is simply proper etiquette or behaviour both in the part of the country where I come from but also generally that when a friend and elder is undergoing health challenges, it would be improper on your part not to show solidarity and support. 

 “That is simply what took us there; we wanted to associate ourselves with him at a time of need and as an elder, as a mentor and as a big figure in our political party, nothing wrong in paying him a courtesy visit to check on him to see how he was faring and we did that and we returned. 

 "So it has nothing to do with 2023; let me make that absolutely clear.” Fayemi declared.

Meanwhile,First Awareness noted that since Tinubu was away to London,not less than 30 politicians have visited him to wish him a speedy recovery. 

 Notable amongst the politicians include President Muhammadu Buhari; Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje; Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun; as well as Fayemi and Governor Akeredolu among others.

 Meanwhile, in a sharp response to some reports that Asiwaju is back to Nigeria,his media adviser has made it cleared  that,his principal has not yet back to the country adding that, such claims were pure lies.

 “His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is not back. The report about his return is absolute fake news. I know many are eagerly awaiting his return. He would do so very soon. When he does everyone will know.”his media Adviser added.
