A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Ekiti State, Mr Olufemi Aduloju, has said that the victory of Dr Kayode Fayemi, is a collective wish of the people for a positive change and development in Ekiti.
Aduloju, an aspirant for the House of Assembly in Ekiti State, noted that the election was a clear statement that Ekiti people were tired of the way the state was being administered since October 2014 when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government led by Ayodele Fayose took over.
The APC aspirant in a congratulatory message to Dr. kayoed Fayemi and his deputy governor-elect, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi, noted that “the deprivation, denial and misrule of the last over three and half years, in addition to turning back the hands of development characteristics of the Fayemi administration, have made the election of Fayemi a necessity to right the wrongs.
“The first tenure of Dr Fayemi as governor between October 2010 and October 2014 witnessed unprecedented development across the nooks and crannies of the state. So, we cannot expect less this time around especially with the love that the people demonstrated on Saturday, July 14, 2018 by giving him the mandate for yet another term.
“With history behind Fayemi and with his track record of achievement in office as governor and minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Ekiti can be rest assured that the incoming government will provide soothing balm for the people, better lives for the citizenry and a prosperous state”.
Congratulating the governor-elect, Aduloju said the victory was well deserved in view of his love to serve the state by “reclaiming the land and restoring its values”.
The APC chieftain also commended the people of Ekiti State for toeing the path of development by voting for progress and development.
He also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), security agencies and other stakeholders in the electoral process for the successful and peaceful conduct of the governorship election in the state.
