Fayose On His Toes as Buhari Has This To Say About Ekiti Election
On Wednesday evening President Muhammadu Buhari while hosting members of the APC South West caucus to a dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja said it was important for the ruling All Progressives Congress to win the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti State.
He said the victory was important because the election would serve as a pointer to subsequent elections in the country. All aspirants that contested the party ticket in Ekiti State with the winner, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, were also present at the dinner.
The President threw shades at the incumbent Governor when he said forthrightness, candour, and integrity that hitherto characterized the people of the state appeared to have been lost in the state currently being governed by Ayodele Fayose of the Peoples Democratic Party and was time for the APC to restore those lost values and return the state to the comity of states.
The President said, “I know Ekiti fairly well and Ekiti people are well known for their forthrightness, candour and integrity. All of these values seem to have been lost and we must restore these values and return Ekiti to its pride of place in the comity of states. As we approach the 2019 elections, the return of Ekiti into the fold of progressive states is important as the election of July 14 is going to be a key pointer to subsequent elections.”
then called on all party chiefs to work together to ensure electoral victory for Fayemi but he would never interfere in the internal affairs of the party at any level.
present at the dinner were Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; a national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and the National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, Chief Bisi Akande, Governor Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo) and the Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Al-Makura, who was the chairman of APC Ekiti Guber primaries committee.
