- The people of Ekiti have been called upon by an APC governorship aspirant, Opeyemi Bamidele, to accept the apology rendered by the party’s governorship candidate, Fayemi
- He asked them to accept Fayemi’s apology over perceived infractions while he was in office between 2010 and 2014
- Bamidele also urged all other aspirants to fully throw their support behind Fayemi’s candidature
One of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirants in Ekiti state, Opeyemi Bamidele, has urged the people of the state to accept the apology rendered by the party’s governorship candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi, over perceived infractions while he was in office between 2010 and 2014.
The call was made after a meeting with his canvassers in a post-primary consultation at Iyin-Ekiti during which he urged all other aspirants to fully support Fayemi’s candidature, Vanguard reports.
NAIJ.com notes that all aspirants were asked to put aside their differences in the interest of the APC and the state. Bamidele said that he was very confident of Fayemi’s capacity to redress what he described as the failures of the PDP administration.
He said: “Dr. Fayemi in the full glare of everybody apologized to the teachers, civil servants, artisans and those who might have been affected by his policies as a governor; I beg our people to accept his apologies.
“We have resolved to align Ekiti state and her good people with the progressive transformation being championed by the APC-led government of President Buhari, and no stone shall be left unturned in ensuring that this dream is achieved."
According to him, PDP is already latching on the existing cracks in the party to destabilise the party.
“This is a calculated plot to destabilise and demonise the APC and give victory to their party in the July 14 election through the back door, but I am certain that the desperate and mischievous agenda of the PDP will fail on a final note," he added.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the minister of mines and steel development, Kayode Fayemi, emerged the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary in Ekiti state.
