- The All Progressives Congress (APC) appoints 77 people into the national campaign council for Kayode Fayemi

- The council is to be chaired by the governor of Kebbi state, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu

The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday, May 24, appointed the governor of Kebbi state, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu to head the party’s 77-member national campaign council to ensure victory for Kayode Fayemi in Ekiti

Fayemi is the party’s flagbearer in the July 14, Ekiti governorship election.

A statement released by the party and obtained by NAIJ.com said the campaign council was inaugurated by the APC deputy national chairman (North), Sen Lawali Shuaibu on behalf of the national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, and consists of 14 serving governors, ministers, some members of the its National Working Committee (NWC), the National Assembly senior leaders.

Sen Lawali Shuaibu stressed the importance of the Ekiti governorship election to the party and urged the campaign council to shun hate speech in its campaign message to the people of Ekiti.

“In the exercise your assignment, please avoid hate speech. Let us ensure that we don’t use hate speech during our campaigns. If other parties do that, our concern should be to capture the hearts of the Ekiti people in going out to bring to an end the four-year comedy that has been going on there.

“The election in Ekiti is very important for the APC. In fact, we feel the level of importance of the election is slightly below the importance of the presidential election to us. We are not going to relent in our effort to win Ekiti state. The responsibility now rest on your shoulders,” he said at the inauguration.

However, the New Telegraph reports that many of those that made the list were absent at the inauguration even though some of them were in Abuja at the time of the event.

Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, who chairs the council was represented by the Ondo state governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, at the inauguration.

Akeredolu said: “We take this task as very important. Just as we all have stressed it. This will not be the first time the party is expressing and underscoring the importance of this election. When South-West party leaders met with the president recently, he underscored the importance of this election.

“We have faced enough of affront as a party. Challenge has been thrown to us not only by the PDP, but by Governor Fayose. So we must be united to confront that challenge. We will give our all to ensure that we win Ekiti State for the APC.”
