Ekiti State Governor and one of the contenders for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has denied stepping down for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo ahead of the party’s primary poll slated for June 6, 7 and 8.
There are reports that governor Fayemi and  four other governors had met with Osinbajo, where the Ekiti State governor agreed to step down for the vice president.
But Fayemi, who is the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) in a statement on Friday in Abuja, through the Head of Media of his Campaign Organisation,  Femi Ige, said the governor would not step down for any aspirant,  adding that he had the backing of the real stakeholders in the party to clinch the ticket.
“No meeting took place between us and any aspirant about stepping down. 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,” he said.
Fayemi asked his supporters to remain calm, focused and not lose faith because of the “lies fabricated by political detractors.”
