Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State introduced the governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun as the ‘Eleyi of Ogun State’ during a political rally in Ekiti State on Tuesday.

The title is a play on Bola Tinubu’s reference to Governor Abiodun during the former’s presidential campaign visit to Ogun State earlier this month.

Speaking in Yoruba, Tinubu had referred to Abiodun as ‘eleyi’ when he was highlighting his significant role in Abiodun’s election as Governor.

“I have just been informed that I did not introduce Governor Dapo Abiodun properly as the ‘Eleyi of Ogun State’,” Fayemi said to loud cheers. “The Eleyi of Ogun State is here,” Fayemi said.

When the camera panned to Abiodun, he was beaming with smile.

The rally was held in Ado-Ekiti as part of efforts to campaign for the All Progressives Congress’ candidate in the upcoming Governorship election in the state, Biodun Oyebanji.
