Ekiti People must reclaim their stolen Mandate from Fayose, says APC

Ekiti People must reclaim their stolen Mandate from Fayose, says APC

"Once Ekiti people come out enmasse and vote for the APC, we will defend our result and ensure that we reclaim what truly belong to us. The manner of his so-called victory also leaves much to be desired as it has turned many of their party leaders and followers against him", he added.

I [Gov Ayodele Fayose] thank the APC for giving Ekiti people a candidate they love to vote against at all times.

Meanwhile, Governor Fayose's deputy and preferred candidate, Professor Kolapo Olusola, had emerged as the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the party's recently held primary election in the state.

He [President Buhari] was also optimistic that having won the party's ticket, the former governor would leverage his track record as a reformist who has a passion for education, health and welfare, to reclaim the governorship seat when the state goes to poll on July 14. "Fayemi's victory has made the condition of the APC worse in Ekiti". This is the time for you to escape from the APC's sinking boat and return home to a rousing welcome.

This declaration puts a new twist to the political ecosystem in Ekiti as federal might and its apparatus are now expected to play a major part in the election and possibly the outcome, given the process that led to the emergence of the minister as APC candidate. He may deceive them in Abuja but he is a paper weight at home.

"Though, I did not win the primary, but I have no regret contesting because members of APC in Ekiti are great people. I would like them to uphold the values and philosophy of the APC by joining hands to support Dr. Fayemi in the forthcoming elections".

Fayemi on Saturday, May 12, emerged victor of the All Progressives Congress primary election but Fayose said that is the farthest he would go.

Of surprise was the performance of Kayode Ojo, a business tycoon, who trailed the two front-liners to come third.

He said that the APC was taking the Ekiti governorship poll seriously "to redeem the state from a very abusive government".

Al-Makura who commended all stakeholders for their contribution to the success of the primary handed Fayemi the Certifi cate of Return as the APC candidate for the July 14 poll expressing optimism that the party would coast home to victory.

Balla said: "In the three days that we (committee) have sat, we have not received a single petition, either in form of writing, telephone call or a text message, which means there has been no petition after the primary election in Ekiti state".
