The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has reacted to Chris Ngige’s campaign for the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.
Platform Times had reported that, Ngige mistakenly urged people of the state to vote for Fayose, on Saturday, instead of the flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Kayode Fayemi.
The Minister said this during the grand finale of APC governorship rally in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
Reacting to Ngige’s remark, Dabiri-Erewa claimed that the former Anambra Governor mixed up Fayose and Fayemi’s names, because they both start with ‘Fay’.
“The two names start with “FAY”. He immediately corrected himself. Anyone can make that mistake,” she tweeted.
The Ekiti governorship elections hold this Saturday, July 14.
