+ How He was chased out of Yewa at Gun Point
About two years ago, Yayi had reportedly relocated to Yewa, thereby abandoning the constituency which voted him to represent them in the House of Representatives by diverting his attention to his Ogun East Senatorial ambition, only for him to return few weeks back to declare his intention to run as the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate. Though he faces competition from other aspirants in the area who had also declared their intention represent the party in the election. Some of the other aspirants are; Chief Demola Seriki, Mrs. Joke Oorelope-Adefulire, Hon. Enoch Ajiboso and many others.
Yayi whose ambition in Ogun State was said to have been truncated at gun point in Ilaro, we gathered is banking on his relationship with the strongman of Alimosho politics who is also the current Executive Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola to win the ticket ahead of other aspirants, his confidence of getting the ticket is visible with aggressive way they are pasting his posters in the senatorial district.
It is to note that this is the same person that after he was voted to represent Alimosho in the house of representatives decided to abandon the area mid-way to pursue his botched senatorial ambition which is the first step towards his governorship ambition in Ogun State.
