Kayode Fayemi of Kebbi, Oyo and Ekiti states, respectively.

"Is it not unusual therefore that President Buhari who wants Nigerians to perceive his administration as fighting corruption, will cast a net into the ocean and bring out only corrupt people to run his campaign?"

He asked the people of the state not to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), alleging that its presidential candidate has promised to enrich his friends at the expense of his masses.
