Fayose Visit Tinubu

October 13, (THEWILL) – The immediate past governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose and a former Ogun state governor, Gbenga Daniel, on Tuesday paid a visit to the former governor of Lagos State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in his Ikoyi residence, Lagos.

Gbenga Daniels Visit Tinubu

Tinubu has just returned from the United Kingdom where he went for treatment. He returned to Nigeria on Friday night after spending three months there.

Fayose, in a tweet, said he visited Tinubu to wish him quick recovery.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain lamented that people hardly celebrate others when they are alive.

“I was at Bourdillon to wish Asiwaju Bola Tinubu soonest recovery. Health issues know no political party and in this part of the world, we seldom celebrate people when they are alive. Rather, we like to sign condolence registers. To me, that is not the best way to live.

“Most importantly, politics should be about love for each other. Therefore, like other leaders in Nigeria, I wish Asiwaju sound and robust health. And to those negative political analysts, this visit notwithstanding, I remain an unrepentant PDP leader and key stakeholder,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, Daniel, has since his defection to the APC been in various high-level meetings with leaders across the country.

He visited a few hours after Fayose left the residence of the APC leader.

THEWILL reports that Tinubu and Daniel met behind closed doors.

The relationship between Tinubu and Daniel dates back decades, and they remained strong allies until 2003 when Daniel contested for the governorship seat in Ogun state.

Daniel has remained active in politics, coordinating the Southwest campaign for the late President Umaru Yar’Adua and later President Goodluck Jonathan.

He contested for the chairmanship of the PDP in 2017 but withdrew at the last minute. He was the director-general of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign. He left to support the gubernatorial bid of Prince Dapo Abiodun in 2019 before finally joining the APC early this year.
