Speaking at a colloquium marking the 110th posthumous birthday of Chief Obafemi Awolowo,  Fasanmi likened Fayemi to the late sage while calling political parties to zone the presidency to the Southwest in 2023.
Prof Banji Akintoye corroborated the elder statement in his paper, entitled: ‘New Engagements by Progressives’.


He said, “Decent people of Ekiti should take the lead and help reposition the nation. I want to say that in 2023, we Ekiti want to aspire for what we have never aspired for. We want to produce the next president of Nigeria. We know that it takes the Ekiti character to rebuild Nigeria. Kayode (Fayemi) has the right ideas. He knows what to do in the management of our affairs. “We must have the tenacity to push for what we think is right. We should not let ourselves be intimidated by what exists.”
