A photo of Ekiti State governor Ayodele Fayose and his deputy Kolapo Olusola purportedly visiting Bola Tinubu went semi-viral on Sunday.
Some even said Fayose and Olusola could be planning to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join Tinubu in the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Fayose has denied the apparent rumour.
Linking me with any APC leader is like saying that I'm associating with armed robbers who stole the mandate of Ekiti people. If it will remain one man that will continue to stand against the tyrannical govt of Buhari and his APC, that one man will be Peter Ayodele Fayose.

Fayose’s ally, Olusola, lost the recent Ekiti guber poll to APC’s Kayode Fayemi.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) are reportedly ready to probe Fayose for alleged corruption after Fayemi takes the helm in October when Fayose’s immunity as governor expires.
Some say Fayose could be planning to defect to the APC to “enter EFCC’s good books”.
