Ayo Fayose, former governor of Ekiti, was spotted on Wednesday campaigning for the reelection of Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of the state.
Fayose was seen canvassing votes for Sanwo-Olu in a video posted by Jubril Gawat, senior special assistant to the Lagos governor on new media.
The former Ekiti governor and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) member addressed a group of Lagos transport workers in the video.
“Yesterday, the former governor of Ekiti State, took the #SanwoLekansi message to the transport workers at the local airports in Lagos together with Mr governor,” Gawat wrote on Twitter.

In a recent interview with Arise Television, Fayose had described Olajide Adediran, the Lagos governorship candidate of the PDP, and Funke Akindele, his running mate, as “people doing theatre”.
He said the duo lacks the requisite credentials to govern Lagos and its challenges.
Shortly after the presidential election of February 25, Fayose said he was stepping aside from party politics and “staying off” the PDP.
“From today, I stay off PDP. Let me put it this way, in party politics. I say it here from today, I step aside because I must be talking like a leader in this country,” he had said.
The former governor subsequently clarified that he is yet to resign his membership of the main opposition party.
