Her aides say consultations by the Senator have gone far in preparation to the said declaration.

It would be recalled that she was the candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) in the 2011 governorship election which she lost to incumbent Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed who was then in the PDP.

Senator Gbemi sparked up her aspiration when she publicly declared for PDP shortly after her brother left the party for APC.

Meanwhile, Gbemi has been meeting with key stakeholders in Kwara, and according to reports, the consultations would be topped up by a public declaration any moment from now.
