2023: Awe opens up on ‘battle’ between Tinubu, Fayemi for APC presidential ticket

The former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Chief Jide Awe, has said the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Governor Kayode Fayemi, have no bad blood between them, despite their rumoured interests in the 2023 presidential race.

Awe stated this while speaking on New Cruse 92.7 FM on Saturday.

He urged the followers of the two APC chieftains to focus on promoting the overall interests of the party and make it stronger ahead of the future elections.

Responding to a question on the rumoured interest of Tinubu and Fayemi in the APC presidential ticket ahead of the 2023 general elections, Awe noted that while the two men are yet to declare their ambition, their supporters have been shouting on their perceived bid from the rooftop.

He said: “The two protagonists (Tinubu and Fayemi) are yet to speak up but their supporters have been in the vanguard of ambition yet to be declared. We should concentrate on building our party rather than causing division.

“There is no pseudo war between Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Dr John Kayode Fayemi. Look at you, the next day, you will see Dr Fayemi at Bourdillon (Ikoyi residence of Tinubu).

“That is politics for you, it is a game of the more you look, the less you see.”
