Thousands storm Ado Ekiti as Fayemi declares governorship ambition

Thousands storm Ado Ekiti as Fayemi declares governorship ambition”

The Deputy Governor of Ekiti State is promising to maintain the progress in the state, by continuing what he called the good legacy of the incumbent Governor Fayose.

Fayemi who addressed a mammoth crowd in the state capital appeared on a white polo bearing his name and the ruling All Progressives Congress, under whose platform he intends to achieve his governorship dream.

Fayemi said the party would deploy everything allowed by the constitution to ensure that whoever emerges in the May 5 primary of the APC would triumph over the candidate of the PDP.

"They said the June 21 governorship poll is free, fair and credible, so that of July 14 will be free, fair and transparent as well".

"My convictions about how much more is possible in Ekiti stem not from any sense of entitlement but from a sense of service of obligation and posterity that positioned us for a time like this". They will accuse us of using federal might, but we will not care.

Fayemi said: "We will use local, state and federal power to take over Ekiti from a rapacious government being run by brigandage in Ekiti".

The rally, which was well attended by party supporters, created a traffic snarl that left motorists stranded for several hours.

The minister said, "We will ensure he ends up in jail". We have to complete and bring back those projects we initiated when we were in the saddle. I am a retired civil servant; my wife is also a retired public servant and therefore, we know what it means to get paid your salary as and when due.

"We should be ready to support whoever the party picks as the candidate, provided the process is free, fair and transparent if truly we are loyal party men".

Fayemi, in the letter said his decision to join the governorship race was informed by the need to join other patriots to rescue the state from the grip of the current "insensitive and incompetent PDP-led administration", that had plunged the state and its people into unimaginable misery and poverty. "No one can win election alone, so I beg of you to not use your writeups on our platforms to destroy our party", she said. That is why it is important for us to be united.

Mr Olayinka Oyebode, Special Assistant on Media to the minister, disclosed in a statement on Thursday in Abuja that letters had been written to elders of the party, prominent citizens and traditional rulers in Ekiti.
