Some media had reported that Fayemi and other four governors held a meeting behind a closed doors with the Vice President, where he was pressured to abandon his presidential ambition.

But in a statement issued and signed by the Head of Media and spokesman of Dr. Kayode Fayemi Presidential Campaign Organisation, Femi Ige, described such rumour as “absolute rubbish.”

He added, “No meeting took place between us and any aspirant about stepping down.”

Ige noted that Fayemi was favourably positioned and had backing of the real stakeholders in the party ahead of the presidential primary election to clinch the APC ticket.

He added, “We are undoubtedly among the leading aspirants for the position and one to watch in the race. Our candidate has deep trust and respect among political leaders in the party and also from colleague Governors who form a critical mass in the decision making process.”

Ige urged Fayemi’s supporters to remain calm, focused and not lose faith because of the lies fabricated by political detractors.

He insisted that no amount of late night demarketing would work against the Fayemi presidential project.
