Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has said no serious politician will ignore the opportunity of becoming the President of Nigeria.

Fayemi disclosed this when he featured on a Channel’s Televisions programme, ‘Hard Copy’.

Responding to a question about his presidential ambition, Fayemi said, “I get asked this question all the time. I don’t know any serious-minded politician who will have the opportunity to govern a country with the blessings that we have – in spite of the challenges – that will not give it a shot but we are not there yet.”

The governor, however, refused to state categorically if he would be contesting for the presidency in 2023 or not, stating that he is currently focused on completing his tenure in October 2022.

“I am considering finishing well in Ekiti in 2022. I have a job. Frankly, I am eternally grateful to the Ekiti people for giving me the opportunity to govern the state twice and I still have a lot to deliver on that agenda.

“So, the future will take care of itself. I have no means of knowing what is going to happen but for me, the certainty is that I am the Governor of Ekiti State and that term expires in October 2022. That is the job I have for now,” Fayemi said.

Fayemi also faulted calls for the division of the country, stating that the best way forward is devolution of powers from the centre to the federating units.
