APC Leaders, Governors Storm Ekiti For Fayemi
Leaders and governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have arrived in Ekiti State to begin last-minute campaign for ex-governor Kayode Fayemi.
The former minister is the party’s candidate for Saturday’s governorship election.
The poll is scheduled to hold across the 16 local government areas of the state, while the new administration will be inaugurated on October 16.
Those already in town include APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, former interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande, former governors Segun Osoba of Ogun, Segun Oni of Ekiti, and the Deputy Chairman, South of the party, Otunba Niyi Adebayo, who was also the first democratically elected governor of Ekiti in 1999.
Others are governors of Ondo, Rotimi Akeredolu, Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun and the Kebbi state governor, Alhaji Isa Bagudu, who is also Chairman of the Campaign Committee of the Ekiti gubernatorial election for the APC.
In a chat with NAN, Akande said Saturday’s election was a must for the party to win.
He noted that Ekiti could not afford to be in the opposition in the Southwest.
“The Saturday election will go in peace. It is, therefore, time for all Yorubas to come together. Ekiti cannot afford to be in the opposition. It is certain that APC will win on Saturday,” Akande declared.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari is expected in the state on Tuesday.
