State Publicity Secretaries of the All Progressives Congress in the South-West Zone have applauded the immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, CON.
They described him as an Emeritus Governor who served both his state and country meritoriously.
The team of publicists who visited Fayemi over the weekend at his residence in Ado-Ekiti urged him not to relent in contributing to nations building.
They described as patriotic and statesmanlike the decision of the ex-governor to drop his ambition to rule the country and pulled his political weight behind Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who eventually emerged as the party’s presidential candidate.
Recall that the former minister of solid minerals made a surprise withdrawal from the presidential primary of the APC, and declared support for Senator Tinubu, and has since been working assiduously to ensure his (Tinubu’s) victory at the 2023 presidential poll.
Responding, Dr. Fayemi assured that he was ready to be at the forefront of campaigns to ensure victory for the candidates of his party in the 2023 general election.
“We should do everything possible to ensure the nation continues its journey along the path of stability, prosperity and greatness,” he added.
“As a progressive party, populated by resourceful and passionate patriots, we must ensure that no stone is left unturned to mobilize support for our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is the best among the pack of those seeking to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in office come May 2023. We have the wherewithal to run a successful campaign for our president and other candidates. The presidential election, in particular, is ours to lose.”
The party publicists at the meeting included Hons Tunde Oladunjoye (Ogun), Segun Dipe (Ekiti), Alex Kalejaye (Ondo), Adunola Oyewole (Osun), Olawale Sadare (Oyo)
