Wife of the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Mrs. Bisi Fayemi, has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) women in Ekiti State to support the yet-to-be declared governorship ambition of her husband, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
Mrs Fayemi, who was Ekiti’s First Lady between October 2010 and October 2014 when her husband was governor, said her husband would need the support of the womenfolk whenever he officially declared intent to seek the party’s nomination.
Her arrival at the state APC secretariat in Ado Ekiti on Monday sent the environment alight with the women recalling her exploit in women empowerment during her husband’s regime.
Fayemi’s action was a pointer to the fact that her hubby would soon declare interest in the state’s top job as being rumoured.
She was received by the Deputy Chairman of the party, Mrs Kemi Olaleye: Women Leader, Mrs Dupe Bakare: and all the women leaders from all over the state.
According to her, she was at the Secreariat to ask for support for her husband in the forthcoming Ekiti State gubernatorial election.
She promised to continue to support Ekiti women and ensure they are not left behind.
Responding, APC deputy state chairman thanked Fayemi for her visit.
She described the former first lady as a true champion of women who had demonstrated this over the years, adding that the former governor’s wife has been ‘tried and tested’.
She called for peace and harmony in the APC family and end to all acrimony.
