A former Deputy Speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly, Karounwi Oladapo, has said that the incumbent Governor of the State, Kayode Fayemi, is a senior youth, vast Politician, and has major international network, hence is fit to lead Nigeria in 2023.
Oladapo, who is the South-West All Progressives Congress, APC, Spokesman, made this disclosure in an interview on Sunday.
He noted that the National Leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, will be above 70 years old in 2023, saying that he cannot in all good conscience support him to become Nigeria’s next President after President Muhammadu Buhari.
The former Lawmaker stressed that Nigerians cannot tolerate another septuagenarian after President Buhari.
Oladapo also said that he will not be supporting the APC National Leader, because he is a Muslim, stating that, it is time for a Christian to lead the country forward.
Oladapo maintained that Governor Fayemi is 55 years of age, a senior youth within the bracket of the ‘sorosoke’ generation, and a vast Politician.
He noted that Governor Fayemi is also a Christian from the South, adding that, the stability of Nigeria will not be threatened under his Leadership.
According to the former Lawmaker, Governor Fayemi is highly connected, has a strong international network, and development partners across the world.
Oladapo revealed that Governor Fayemi has been tested with the Chairmanship of the Nigerian Governors Forum, NGF, and has performed very well. He added that the Ekiti State Governor has earned the respect and love of all Governors across party line.
The South-West APC Spokesman opined that Governor Fayemi has helped most of the Governors to attract international development partners, and has shown them through peer review, how to get international grants to drive development in their respective States.
