The All Progressives Congress, APC, popularity is beginning to be eroded in South-West.
Feelers from South West also shows that APC is no longer a favored party in the region as the People’s Democratic Party seem to rising in popularity.
It however came as a surprise when Tinubu’s henchman, Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state, visited Governor Ayodele Fayose in Ado-Ekiti.
APC has already condemned the visit labeling it as a contempt for the party’s leadership in the state.
Aregbesola was in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday on invitation of Fayose for the 20th Year Anniversary of Ekiti State.
At the event, Aregbesola described Fayose as “omoluabi” and a hardworking governor who had turned around the fortunes of Ekiti State.
Aregbesola also described Governor Fayose as a “Reliable person” and that in spite of political differences, he and Fayose shared many things in common.
Then Aregbesola said “Sooner than later, there will be realignment of forces.”
That was the statement that broke the camel’s back.
The State publicity secretary of APC, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said: “Aregbesola’s visit to Fayose praising him as ‘omoluabi’ is embarrassing.
“It is shocking that Aregbesola as a governor would be visit Ekiti State without putting the leaders into confidence.
“More so on a visit to a man who once wished the President dead.
“Fayose had done unbelievable things both in Nigeria and abroad to bring Buhari’s government down.
“Worse still, Aregbesola was praising the man who will stop at nothing to bring APC-led Federal Government down.
“We find it most embarrassing that one of our leaders would be planning a re-alignment of forces with a governor that has made life a nightmare for our members.
“We also find it spiteful that Aregbesola would sit with Fayose on this same program where the latter berated Buhari to no end.
“Fayose described the President’s programs as a theory that is compounding problems for Nigerians, and Aregbesola said nothing.
