Reasons I want to be Governor again – Fayemi
According to Fayemi, he wants to return to power so he can deliver the people of Ekiti from poverty.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) flagbearer in the upcoming Ekiti state governorship election on Saturday, July 14, 2018, Kayode Fayemi has stated reasons why he wants to be Governor again.
Dr Kayode Fayemi was Governor of Ekiti state from October 2010 – October 2014, and he was defeated by Governor Ayo Fayose.
According to Dr Kayode Fayemi, he wants to return to power so he can be able to deliver the people of Ekiti from poverty.
Fayemi said this on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, at a rally organized to produce support for him, ahead of the governorship election on Saturday. Fayemi also appreciated the people of Ekiti state for coming out to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
“I am so delighted with your determination to ignore the unpopular order by Gov. Ayo Fayose that nobody should come out to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari to Ekiti.
It is therefore time to send Fayose and his unpopular government out of office.
“I want you to vote for me on Saturday and show Gov. Fayose that the power of Ekiti people is much greater and stronger than his own power,” Fayemi said.
Governor Ayo Fayose has consistently maintained that Fayemi will be disgraced in the upcoming governorship election.
Fayose however alleged that the APC is planning to deactivate Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) belonging to members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
