Olujimi Declares Intention To Run In Ekiti Governorship Race

Ekiti bars Fayemi aide from public office for 10 years Olujimi Declares Intention To Run In Ekiti Governorship Race
Patty Aguilar | 15 April, 2018, 13:20

Immediate past governor of Ekiti State and current Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has described the present Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) occupants of the state government as charlatans that must be chased out of the governance of the state.

He however assured that whoever emerged from the party's primaries would be supported by other aspirants to ensure victory at the polls.

Fayemi had on April 2, during the quarterly meeting of the Ekiti APC leaders at his Isan Ekiti country home, indicated that he would be seeking APC's ticket to return as the state governor.

He also disclosed that latest records from the Debt Management Office (DMO) showed that Fayose had borrowed N56 billion since coming to power in October 2014 with nothing tangible to show for it.

"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".

He said: "There are people who have power to ask for undue advantage, but we are saying it should not be granted to them".

"It is time to put a stop to that; it is not about title, it is about sacrifice and whatever it will take us to free Ekiti from these criminal and rapacious brigands, we will do it".

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

"Party members should not use abusive and intemperate language and I want to suggest to our party leaders to come out with a code of conduct to check this". I shall be campaigning on the strength of my past achievements as governor of the state and the achievements of the President Buhari -led APC government at the centre.

"It is absolutely unacceptable for aspirants to indulge in abuses, use intemperate languages against one another".

"If we don't do that, we run the risk of damaging our brand (APC)".

"Each contestant should sell his brand to the party delegates who will decide our fates". We have the red card.

The APC acting chairman, Kemi Olaleye, said the party would do its best to be transparent in the primary. This time around, we will have a transparent, free and fair election, genuine and authentic election.

"Let us be united and know that we have only one enemy, which is Fayose for us to be able to win".

The PDP National Organising Secretary of PDP, Col. Austin Akobundu, earlier receiving the nomination form, urged Adeyeye and his supporter to follow the party's guidelines and play by the rule.

Publicity Secretary of ADP, Eniola Eponlolaye, in a statement made available to newsmen on Saturday, said: "It has been reported by members of our party that some agents of the ruling party in the state have started attacking and intimidating people suspected to be members of other political parties at the on-going voter's registration centres, thereby depriving members of the public from participating in the registration exercise".
