The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed June 18, 2022, for the Ekiti governorship election. Less than a year to the election, many Nigerians are wondering why the Governor and Leader of the APC in the state, John Kayode Fayemi is yet to publicly announce who he will be supporting to succeed him.

Fayemi's predecessor, Ayodele Fayose has publicly announced his preferred candidate for the Ekiti State governorship election some months ago. His prefered candidate, Otunba Bisi Kolawole was a former member of the House of Assembly and the state Chairman of the People's Democratic Party.

Some members of the All Progressive Congress are still waiting for Dr Kayode Fayemi to publicly declare his anointed candidate just like Ayo Fayose has done.

I think Governor Kayode Fayemi is yet to name his preferred candidate just to provide a level playing field for all the APC members that will be interested in succeeding him in 2022.

Another reason for his silence on who will succeed him might be that he is still consulting with his political advisers on who is the best to take over from him among those working with him. A candidate that has the political strength and popularity to challenge any candidate of the People's Democratic Party.
