This was contained in a letter entitled ‘Notification of Withdrawal from Senatorial Contest’.

“…It is expedient to note, however, that the senatorial ambition was the making of former Governor Ayodele Fayose,” he said.

According to the former Deputy Governor, Fayose had sent emissaries to him, asking him to run for the post and he had to yield to the pressure from concerned stakeholders.

“To my great surprise, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, who openly endorsed my candidacy for Senate in my town, discretely aided another person from the same constituency to pick the same senatorial form.
