Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state has explained why he is yet to declare his rumoured presidential ambition.
Clearing the air on speculations bordering on his political aspiration, the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum said the season of Ramadan and the lent period were sacred for political games.
Fayemi stated these during his visit to Gombe State, where he was received at the Government House by Governor Muhammadu Yahaya.
According to him: ” For us, in Christendom, this is the period of lent and for people of the Muslim faith, this is Ramadan. Very rarely do the two come together. So this is a period that requires sober reflection.
“The period is of deep thinking and should not be a period of the political declaration. Whether I’m going to run or not is a matter of conjecture. What I will appeal to you to do is to wait until after this spiritual season. I think it will be disrespectful to start playing those politics.”
