Ekiti Primary: Al-Makura submits report, attributes success to aspirants, delegates' conduct

Nasarawa State Governor Tanko Al-Makura

Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has told the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to expect a defeat that will be worse than what he suffered in the 2014 poll. Kolapo Olusola, who is the incumbent Deputy Governor of the state.

"President Buhari commends all the participants in the keenly contested primary, who passionately worked hard to serve the state as governor, urging them to keep upholding the values and philosophy of the party by supporting the APC candidate in the forthcoming elections".

He described the election as a reclamation battle to ensure the people are freed from the pangs of poverty, deprivation and bad governance.

Fayemi maintained that while there might be infrastructural development in the state, infrastructure should be a trigger for concrete development.

The former governor made the remarks one day after he was declared the victor of the governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

In his tweet, he said: "I thank the APC for giving Ekiti people a candidate they love to vote against at all times".

Bamidele warned that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was already latching on to the existing crack in the party to destabilize the party.

He noted that it was only Ekiti state in the South West that was not in the APC fold, this he said, showed that the zone was APC.

"I thank the APC for giving Ekiti people a candidate they love to vote against at all times", Fayose wrote.

He made this known on Monday in Abuja while presenting the committee's report on the primary election to National Chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun.

Meanwhile, APC chieftain, Comrade Timi Frank has mocked APC chieftains who expressed dissatisfaction at the outcome of ward congresses of the party nationwide and the botched governorship primary in Ekiti, asking them to accept the result of their silence in the face of impunity.

"Dr Fayemi had visited me and I have accepted wholeheartedly to work with him in the interest of our party".

"Though, I did not win the primary, but I have no regret contesting because members of APC in Ekiti are great people".

"The most important thing to us in the APC is victory in the July election, for us, whenever there is a primary election, it is a family affair". I see a bright future for Ekiti APC going by the spirit of sportsmanship our people have displayed. Virtually every aspect of our lives needed interventions and it is only the APC that can bring this desired change.
