Former members of the Ekiti State Executive Council (2010-2014) have congratulated Dr. Kayode Fayemi, for emerging as the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the July 14 governorship election.
They also pledged their unalloyed support for his success at the poll.
Rising from a meeting in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday, the former EXCO members made the plea for all well-meaning Ekiti sons and daughters to join hands with Fayemi and APC to put an end to the “shameful, personalised reign of the PDP-led government in the state.”
The meeting which was chaired by former deputy governor of the state, Prof. Modupe Adelabu, agreed among other things to give support to Fayemi’s campaign activities, which kick off on Monday.
Stressing that the former minister is the best option for Ekiti State in the July 14 governorship election, they stated their confidence in his ability to take the state to greater heights “by restoring her core values and easing the current hunger in the land, by providing a truly compassionate leadership if elected as governor.”
Thejr statement reads: “We congratulate Dr. Kayode Fayemi for emerging as the candidate of our dear party for the July 14 governorship election. We pray for his success in the coming poll and are prepared to work assiduously with all Ekiti sons and daughters, our elders and stakeholders and the State APC Executive to collectively ensure victory for him and our dear party come July 14.”, the communiqué reads in part.
Fayemi, who also attended the meeting, thanked the former cabinet members for their support and commitment to the development of the state.
He said the coming election, for him and all APC members is a rescue mission, adding that with the support of the various stakeholders and party members, the APC would dislodge the PDP in the July election and set the state on an irreversible path of progress.
The meeting which was highly interractive was rounded off with a prayer for the success of the APC candidate in the coming poll.
