Fayemi officially joins 2023 Presidential race
The Ekiti State governor and former Minister of Mines and Steel, Kayode Fayemi, has declared his intention to run for the 2023 presidency.
This governor stated this on Wednesday, while unveiling his agenda for the country.
He said that after consideration of where the nation was, he believed that his entry into the race would rebirth a new Nigeria.
‘‘After careful consideration of where we are as a nation…I believe that my entry into the race will offer Nigerians the opportunity to examine competing visions for national rebirth,” Fayemi said.
He said that it had been his singular honour to have been an active part at various times with other committed compatriots labouring from various works of life, labouring with determination towards rapid and sustained national progress.
“Dear compatriots, it is in the spirit of this abiding faith in our country and the promise of its unfinished greatness that I stand before you today in total humility and in all sense of responsibility solemnly declare to all within our party and Nigerians at large my decision to accept my name to be put forward for consideration by the All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership and membership as our party’s standard-bearer in the upcoming contest for a successor to our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari”.
