The Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi on Tuesday visited his counterpart, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State as part of his consultation in order to emerge as the President of Nigeria in 2023.

Fayemi in a post on his Facebook account on Wednesday revealed that he visited Governor Ganduje and the Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule on Tuesday.
According to the Ekiti State Governor, he visited the APC Governors for further consultations regarding the APC Presidential Primary election.
Fayemi also met the former Governor of Benue State and Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, George Akume.
