By Rasaq Ibrahim, Ado-Ekiti

Former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Chief Jide Awe, has said there is no disagreement between the National Leader of the party Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Ekiti Governor Kayode Fayemi.

Awe said Tinubu and Fayemi enjoy an uncompromising cordial relationship despite their rumoured interest in the 2023 presidential race, noted that their followers were behind the rumoured enmity.

The ruling APC Chieftain who advocated for unity in the party urged the followers of the duo to shun divisive politics and promote the overall interests of the party to make it stronger ahead of the future elections.

Awe, who spoke on Saturday while featuring on a personality interview programme, THE CONVERSATION, on New Cruse 92.7 FM, Ikere, which was monitored by correspondent, insisted that the APC must use the opportunity of being in power at the centre to restructure the country.

He said politicians across party divides are being carried away by the race for the 2023 presidency when officeholders are yet to reach the midterm because much powers have been concentrated at the centre.

Responding to a poser on the rumoured interest of Tinubu and Fayemi in the APC presidential ticket, ahead of the 2023 general elections, Awe noted that while the two prominent party leaders have not declared their ambition, their supporters have been shouting on their perceived bid from the rooftop.

He noted that while the supporters of Tinubu and Fayemi have been trading words, the two leaders still maintain their good relationship and relate well with each other.

He said: “The two protagonists (Tinubu and Fayemi) are yet to speak up but their supporters have been in the vanguard of ambition yet to be declared. We should concentrate on building our party rather than causing division.

“There is no pseudo war between Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Dr. John Kayode Fayemi. Look at you, the next day, you will see Dr. Fayemi at Bourdillon (Ikoyi residence of Tinubu).

“That is politics for you, it is a game of the more you look, the less you see.”
